Virgie R. Fleenor Art Gallery to Feature "Roots & Sprouts" Exhibit in September

September 03, 2012

During the month of September, the “Roots & Sprouts” exhibit will hang in the Bristol Public Library’s Virgie R. Fleenor Art Gallery featuring local artist’s work. The group “Roots & Sprouts” was formed in 2009, but includes artists that have been working together for close to 15 years. The ‘roots’ are the teachers of the group and the ‘sprouts’, well, they are the students. This group meets on Tuesday mornings from 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. at the Slater Center in Bristol, TN. Their efforts do not simply concentrate on watercolors. They’re known to do acrylics, pastels, drawings on stone and wood, and take a few day trips to pick up art supplies in North Carolina. They also visit the Bristol Public Library as a group to see the monthly exhibits in the Virgie R. Fleenor Art Gallery.

The “Roots & Sprouts” exhibit will be on display in the Virgie R. Fleenor Art Gallery September 1st-30th. The library is open Monday- Thursday 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday- Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays 2 p.m.-5 p.m.
