Many visitors attended Recycled Family Art Day, hosted by Piedmont Arts on April 24.
Carter Bank & Trust sponsored the event that encouraged participants to create bird feeders using recycled materials like milk containers. Some also enjoyed storytime with the Blue Ridge Regional Library.
Visitors also were invited to tour the gallery to see the American Watercolor Society’s 153rd Annual Exhibition and the Jane Iten Memorial Exhibit. Iten was a local artist and friend of the art museum. An accomplished artist and teacher, Iten was a member of the Virginia Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, and Martinsville-Henry County’s artist guild, Lynwood Artists. Iten’s paintings have been included in local and national exhibits and have received many awards, including Virginia Watercolor Society’s Shenandoah Award.
