Detail for Gander in the Bulrushes by Janet Hart

Member news from Region V

WVWS members participated in the Steubenville Art Association Annual Spring Show in early April. Among the participants were Donna Hall, Janet Hart, Janet Sheehan and Gussie Smith. More can be learned about the Steubenville show at the association’s Facebook page.

Janet Hart is participating in several shows this spring. Among the exhibitions are the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society Waterworks 2019, with “Gander in the Bulrushes” in Panza Gallery in Millvale, Pennsylvania;  and The Dot Show at West Liberty University in April. Janet’s Dot Show watercolor was “Slimehead,” a fish made up of dots, which was the requirement for acceptance in the show (painting must be primarily in dots). This was a one-time gallery show at West Liberty’s Nutting Gallery in memory of Bernie Peace, who specialized in “dot” art.

Also, WVU Libraries has asked Janet Hart to exhibit her watercolor “Wind Power” for their Appalachian Futures exhibit to be held in September 2019.  This is a single temporary exhibit of original works by Appalachian artists at the downtown campus in Morgantown.
