Piedmont Arts          
Art Garden Community Day
5/20/17 - 11 AM - 1 PM
R.P. Gravely-A.J. Lester Art Garden

Sponsored by Blue Ridge Bank

Create a permanent part of Piedmont Arts’ new R.P. Gravely-A.J. Lester Art Garden.

Guests will help artist Beryl Solla install mosaic tile murals on the gateway sign that welcomes guests into the Art Garden. Small groups will work with Solla throughout the event to complete four tile murals that represent the four seasons.

Each mural will have a different theme that relates not only to the seasons, but to Virginia and Martinsville-Henry County. Murals designs include a dogwood, a butterfly, a pumpkin and a cardinal.

Solla is chairman of the Art Department at Piedmont Virginia Community College. She received a BA from Florida International University and an MFA from the University of Miami – Florida. She has completed many public art projects in Virginia and has worked with students in Martinsville-Henry County on several in-school murals, as part of Piedmont Arts’ Educational Outreach Program.
