New exhibits coming to Carnegie Hall

For The Register-Herald


The galleries at Carnegie Hall will once again showcase a new collection of talented regional artists.

From Jan. 4 to March 8, images created by 90 artists representing the many species that perished when pollution and low water levels set off an algae bloom are featured in an exhibit, “Reflections: Homage to Dunkard Creek” in the Museum Galleries.

A photographic exhibit created with current cell phone technology, “Phoneography: Beyond the Talk,” will hang in the Auditorium Gallery.

The Old Stone Room will present textiles created by members of the Fiber Arts Network as well as pieces from members’ private collections acquired from other countries.

Also, the public is invited to a free opening reception for all three exhibits from 5 to 7 p.m. Jan. 18 in the Old Stone Room.

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

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

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.
