“Expressions” returns to Piedmont Arts with a fresh showcase of artwork by local and regional artists. The exhibit will be open to the public May 28 – July 29.
“This is always an exciting exhibit,” said Director of Exhibitions and Marketing Bernadette Moore. “Artists from across the region plan their entries all year. We get a wide variety of work in different media and styles, so there is really something for everyone.”

This year’s exhibition is judged by Gerry Bannan, professor of art at Patrick & Henry Community College.
