Hey Picket Fence peeps! I have a great year lined up but need to have supplies like paint and wood. I just found out that dark blue exterior house paint is not available anywhere due to a supply shortage of whatever makes blue, blue. I also can't get primer and I was planning on getting 10 gallons of it to paint the 1000 pickets and 400 pieces of 2ft by 2ft panels for my new residency, Barn Quilts. I just got my wood supply!

Does anyone have dark blue exterior house paint you could donate?

Does anyone have primer?

Thank you!
Virginia

In the home stretch of the 2019 Picket Fence Project. I've approached local Garner businesses for sponsorship and the response has been great! Many of these businesses I patron myself. Garner Chiropractic, with Dr Kirch, and Jones Insurance Agency, Inc. have become sponsors! I'm so happy to have this support so we can continue to offer this wonderful project to Garner.

An annual art instillation in Garner NC made up of individual pickets painted by local residents and assembled together to create a fence that represents the individuals who make up our community. This fence is presented at Garner's Light Up Main celebration December 1st and is display until the new year. The project is funded by the Downtown Garner Association and local businesses and sponsors, so there is no cost to organizations and schools to participate!

What a beautiful fence painting by our 4th graders🥰🥰. These fences will get installed in our school. Thank you so much The Picket Fence Project to bring Fence painting workshop in Parkside Elementary. 4th graders had a lot of fun during workshop residency. Thank you all the amazing staffs from our school to organize pick up and drop off. These programs are sponsored by Parkside Elementary PTA. Also thank you United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County#artistsinschools for the grant. ☺️
Have our 2019-20 5th graders driven by Lead Mine to see their fence yet?? If so, WE WANT TO SEE IT!! Please post pictures of the artists standing at the fence so we can say thank you! Lead Mine PTA was thrilled to sponsor Virginia Maier, Artist in Residence, The Picket Fence Project in conjunction with United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County for the 2019-2020 5th graders. Installation was just completed thanks to Ms. Maier, our fabulous 5th grade team, and administration. We miss our 5th graders and are so proud of the beautiful legacy project they left LME! #artistsinschools https://www.facebook.com/thepicketfenceproject/
