Featuring work by young artists

The Foster Gallery showcases work by students from Martinsville and Henry County schools. Exhibits are curated every six to eight week, allowing work by students from all 19 area schools to be displayed during the year.

For over 25 years, the Foster Gallery has been generously curated by Charity League of Martinsville-Henry County. Piedmont Arts and Charity League believe that fostering an early exposure to the arts is critical for a well-rounded educational experience.

Since 1931, Charity League of Martinsville-Henry County has worked diligently helping youth in the community. Each year, the organization awards scholarships, provides eyeglass screening programs, and helps bring many school-based programs to area classrooms. Several of these programs are implemented through a valuable partnership with Piedmont Arts.

The Foster Gallery is named in Loving Memory of Elnora B. Foster.
