James River Nurseries was proud to be selected landscape and hardscape contractor for the new Baxter Perkinson Center for the Arts!

Located in Chester Village Green next to the Chester Library, the new center is the county's first performing arts complex.  This state-of-the-art cultural arts center has been designed to provide a venue for bringing world-class artists and performances to the county.

The 22,000 square-foot facility will include a "professional children's theater, a touring educational theater, performing and visual arts classes and camps and the Baxter and Elaine Perkinson Gallery, a visual arts resource center showcasing the work of local and national artists at all experience levels."

By serving as a vital creative resource for the county, the center will draw people together for entertainment and education.  Through the arts, the center will inspire and inform in creative ways, and will, no doubt, have a positive impact on the community.

James River Nurseries applauds everyone involved in making the Baxter Perkinson Center for the Arts a reality and wish them all the best for creating an environment that will serve as an outlet for creativity and growth.
