The month of February provides an opportunity to see work by Artworks’ own painters in the show titled “New for 22”. Held over for a second month, this collection of newly created works is a fresh look at creations in all mediums and styles. A free public reception on Saturday, February 5th, will be held from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. This gathering is a great opportunity to meet the artists. It’s also a good time to shop for Valentine’s day from the many items available for sale in the gallery.
Paintings in pastel, watercolor and oil are part of the show, as well as beautifully created carved birds done by Susan Dorsch and a basket filled with skillfully felted items by Lynne Mamone. Some of the artists delved into areas of expression new to them while others brought in new works done in their traditional styles.
ARTWORKS around town is open daily from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday except for Fridays when closing is at 6 p.m. Located in Wheeling’s Historic Centre Market, ARTWORKS operates as a non profit gallery dedicated to promoting the visual arts.
