With history rooted in tobacco, textiles, and furniture, Martinsville has discovered the “art” in its name. The Art and Culture District now plays an integral part in the revitalization of the town nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This “Art in Bloom” tour features interpretive arrangements showcased in the district's museums and gardens and a few private homes nearby. The showcased homes range from early 20th century Colonial and Georgian Revival architecture with traditional décor to an Uptown loft with collections of Native American items, artifacts from the American West and antique toys. One of the highlights of this tour is the Little Post Office, c. 1893, with grounds graced by a new sculpture garden and a display of vintage Porsches.
After party: 6-7 p.m. / Simmons House parking lot
Janice Cain, Serendipity and Hamlet Vineyards trucks will stay open for club members and their guests for an hour past the tour time. You'll be too tired to cook, so enjoy a bit to eat and a glass of win. And there will be a toast to us all at 7 with Hamlet Vineyards' Va Vino, compliments of Cindy Edgerton for the great team work. (Cindy might just have more than one glass.)
