The West Virginia Watercolor Society/Members Only
The West Virginia Watercolor Society was formed in 1948, by a group of artists who wanted to promote and insure high standards in this most exacting medium. Every other year the organization produces an exhibit of works exclusively by their members, which we are delighted to host here at the Art Center.
The opening reception for the show will take place on Sunday, October 16, from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Vignettes from The Clubhouse
Because of the huge popularity of "The Clubhouse," the work of the REsolve artists team, we are re-staging large chunks of it in our Mezzanine and Boll Galleries. If you saw "The Clubhouse" before, come back and bring a friend.

"Turn, Turn, Turn" Regional wood-working at its finest. Regional wood-working, curated by Henry Aglio.
"Your Best Shot IV" Photography by members of the Mid-Ohio Valley camera clubs PLUS .....Women of Appalachia.
This year’s exhibits and presentations will be held in five venues throughout Ohio and West Virginia. Women 15 years and older, living in any of the many Appalachian counties, are invited to submit their work for jury. Past events have highlighted the work of visual and spoken word artists, from Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky.
The mission of WOAP is to showcase the way in which female artists respond to the Appalachian region as a source of inspiration, bringing together women from diverse backgrounds, ages and experiences to embrace the stereotype – to show the whole woman; beyond the superficial factors that people use to judge her – represented by visual interpretation through fine art and spoken word art, “Women Speak,” an evening of poetry, story and song.
November 20 - December 30, 2016
Women of Appalachia VII. Call for entries due September 25
The mission of the WOA events is to showcase the way in which female artists respond to this region as a source of inspiration with the intention that this gathering of artwork and spoken word will prove to be greater than the sum of its parts as visual and verbal themes emerge through the intertwining of the artwork and language. Hopefully, this confluence of ideas and inspirations will empower other regional female artists and the surrounding community so that they might continue the narrative.
Join us this afternoon in all Galleries for Holiday Open House/Shop Small Saturday and Kid's workshops!
November 26- December 31
"Artist Inspired Trees 16" What if Picasso HAD trimmed a Christmas Tree? Bet it would be interesting to look at. Volunteer area artists of all ages get together each year to make this one of the Art Center's best-loved annual exhibits. Each team chooses a famous artist and re-interprets one of their works as a Christmas tree. The results can be beautiful, funny, just plain bizarre....and sometimes all of the above. It's painless and fun art history for all ages.
