“Blacksburg in Bloom” – Art Exhibition by Carole Davis

November 14, 2017 @ 10:00 am - January 6, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

Local artist Carole Davis paints "Blacksburg in Bloom" as a response to the annual beautification of the Town. “Every spring in Blacksburg, I witness nature’s rainbow of colors as trees and bushes unfurl their leaves of yellow, green, rust, pink, and purple. Colorful bulbs begin to bloom in pots and median strips along our streets, and after the threat of frost, summer annuals grow and flower baskets decorate lamp posts. These paintings depict some of the flowers which I saw growing along Main Street last year. They are meant to celebrate the season and to honor town employees who have performed the many tasks that make Blacksburg beautiful.” Carole dedicates this show as a personal “thank you” to everyone who plans, plants, digs, weeds, waters, trims, mulches, or helps coordinate the beautification effort. You make Blacksburg a beautiful place to live!
