‘Covenant’ exhibit now on display at Carnegie Hall

— Now on display through Aug. 31 in Carnegie Hall’s Museum Gallery is Libby Caligan Vass Stephens’ “Covenant” exhibit.

Stephens is best known for her vibrant, abstract realism. Her work incorporates complex life forms intermingled with design elements and cultural symbolism. Each work is narrative, telling many stories within one painting.

Her work hangs in private collections throughout the United States.

Also on display through August are Pamela Gatens’ “Colorful Cats & Flowers” and Romney Collins’ “Nothing but Joy” exhibits.

The galleries at Car-negie Hall are open and free to the public Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Many of the works are available for purchase. The purchase of artwork exhibiting at Carnegie Hall benefits the artist and the Hall.

To find out more about the Hall’s exhibits or its other programming, call 304-645-7917 or visit Carnegie Hall’s website at www.carnegiehallwv. org.

Carnegie Hall’s exhibits are presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
