The event raises financial support for Middleburg Montessori School and provides a forum for many local talented artists in the area. As the world has changed in the last year the Art of the Piedmont volunteers have been working on revitalizing the event in celebration of its 10th year and Middleburg Montessori School’s 40th year. These anniversaries are milestones worth celebrating. Thanks to the support of community members Chris Patusky and Kiernan Slater this year’s event will take place in the beautiful Piedmont countryside of Slater Run Vineyards. New this year will be our week long virtual auction for eager bidders in addition to our walk through viewings at the winery. To commence the event, the virtual bidding will begin Friday May 14th, 2021 followed by the opening of the Tasting Room Gallery for an in person walk through on Thursday May 20th, 2021 between 2:00-6:00PM. To complete the event, there is a limited seating auction gala for Friday May 21st, 2021, 6:00-8:00PM for $100 per ticket, including dinner. 


The Auction Gala will feature a socially distanced artist meet and greet with an outdoor dining experience catered by Nomad Provisions. The meal options will include Porchetta made with pork raised by the Adolescent group at Middleburg Montessori School. A full course dinner paired with Slater Run wines are all included with each ticket purchase. Seating is limited, buy your tickets now before we sell out.


The Art of the Piedmont has been raising financial support for Middleburg Montessori School for 10 years. This event all began when a few parents 

and local community members looked for a better way to support this 501(c)(3) non-profit school. Middleburg Montessori School has been serving families in our community for 40 years and uses these funds  in an effort to serve as many children as possible, all while meeting each and every child’s developmental needs. Due to these unprecedented times, our community support has increased by 20% as we continue to provide financial aid to 52% of our students. The Art of the Piedmont has raised over $172,000 for the school while supporting our local artists and community over the past 10 years. Come out and contribute to the next 10 years and many more while enjoying a fabulous dinner in our beautiful countryside.
