Activities Increase in May at ARTWORKS

There is a lot going on at ARTWORKS for the month of May.  The Pittsburgh Pastel Artists League continues to display their stunning show titled “Pure Pigment” in the Studio Gallery.  There are pastels galore and each one of them is as unique as the one next to it.  This is a must see exhibit.  One-of-a-kind Mother’s Day gifts are available for sale.  Framed originals, prints and note cards are included in their offerings.

ARTWORKS member and watercolorist Karen Catlett is going to present a Watercolor Workshop on Saturday, May 15, 2021 from 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.  There will be a break for lunch (bring your own).  Catlett states “students will learn the brush strokes, how to lay washes, using hard and soft edges, glazing over existing washes and much more.”  Participants can be beginners or advanced or anywhere in between in knowledge and experience.

Coming in June is a show featuring the students of Greg Siegwart.

At noon on June 5th  there will be a free, public “critique” led by Greg Siegwart and Bobbi Priebe.  This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who would like to share their work with artists who can offer suggestions or who just want to share what they do in any medium.  The group that comes together about every three months has fun, is informal and beneficial to all.

ARTWORKS around town is a nonprofit charitable and educational Gallery and Art Center located in Wheeling’s Historic Centre Market.  Hours are from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, except for Friday when closing is at 6 p.m.  Anyone interested in becoming a member is encouraged to go to the website: for more information and an application form.
