UPDATE – August 19, 2022 – It is with great sadness that we must announce the cancellation of our 2022 Garden Party with a Twist which was scheduled for Sunday, August 21st at Dream Rock Silo and Suites in Independence, Virginia. Unfortunately, despite having performed my patented rain away dance last night, the forecast for Sunday is for 70% chance of rain & thunderstorms. We hope you understand and we look forward to seeing you at other Arts Council events throughout the year.

The spectacular “Garden Party With A Twist” returns to Dream Rock Silo & Suites in Independence on Sunday, August 21st (2pm – 4pm).  You are invited to an informal, country-chic garden party featuring the cool jazz of the Crooked Road Jazz Trio and delicious appetizers and sweet treats.  Guests will be able to tour the Dream Rock gardens throughout the afternoon and have the opportunity to take their chances on a fun raffle which includes jewelry, an art quilt, gift baskets and more. The afternoon is hosted by Rebecca Arrington, Linda Cooley, Boni Faith Haynes, Ashley Jurney, Brenda Lindsey, Katie Lipe, Carol Morris, and Ann Watson with the gracious support of Karen and Bill Simpson.  Karen and Bill are the owners Dream Rock Silo & Suites, an idyllic get-away located in the heart of Grayson County.  Tickets for the Arts Council’s “Garden Party with a Twist” are $20/person – gentlemen and ladies are both welcome!  To RSVP, please call The Arts Council at 276-238-1217.  Tickets may be purchased in advance via “The Box Office” on this website.  Cash, Checks and Credit Cards will also be accepted at the door.

**We ask that unvaccinated guests wear a face mask or shield.  Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the event space.
