Airport Commission Continues Art in The Airport Program

Joli Ayn Wood.

The Roanoke Regional Airport Commission has announced the fourth installment of the Art in the Airport program. The program features local artists and provides them exposure to the over 1,000,000 annual visitors to the airport.  This quarter we are excited to feature local artist Joli Ayn Wood.

Born in Roanoke, Virginia, Joli has been painting and creating since 2003, both in the studio and on location “en plein air”.  She is inspired by the mountain vistas and rural landscapes of Southwestern Virginia, the rugged coastlines of New England, as well as the striking Desert Southwest.

When she is not creating or teaching art, Joli seeks to champion fellow artists with deep involvement in local art non-profit organizations, creating opportunities for artists to exhibit and sell their work.  Joli resides with her husband and two cats in the small mountain town of Floyd.

“This art initiative is a great way to feature the exceptional talents of our local artists.  These works allow the airport to partner with the community and expose the many visitors to the airport and region the talents of our 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. Joli Ayn’s 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 July 16, 2018.

This installment of the art showcase at Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport opens April 18, 2018 and runs through July 16, 2018. A reception to meet Joli Ayn Wood will be held at the airport, second level, on April 26 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.
