The Roanoke Regional Airport Commission is pleased to announce the fifth installment of the Art in the Airport program. The program features local artists and provides them exposure to over 1,000,000 annual visitors to the airport.  This quarter the works explore summer in the region.  

“The art initiative is a great way to feature the exceptional talents of our local artists.  These works allow the airport to partner with the art community and expose our visitors to the airport and region the talents of our local artists,” said Timothy T. Bradshaw, A.A.E., executive director of the Roanoke Regional Airport Commission.

Each quarter, the Roanoke Regional Airport Commission will feature art from the 19 counties the airport serves. The artists featured this quarter are Hazel Deeds Bowers, Margie Lucas, Carol Plaskon, and Natalie Strum.  Their works are on display on the second floor of the terminal building.  The art is available for purchase directly through the artist; however, the paintings must remain in place until the shows completion on October 17, 2018.  

This installment of the art showcase at Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport is currently open and runs through October 17, 2018.
