Marshall University Art Professor Peter Massing was on sabbatical but he wasn’t just laid up at Myrtle Beach. Multiples and Collaborations is a new exhibit of Massing’s work in which he teamed up with artists from around the country to work on a common idea.
The exhibit runs through next Thursday, Oct. 2 when there will be a closing reception for the show.
The Birke Art Gallery, located in Smith Hall on the Huntington campus, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday. Massing is also part of a new show that opened up this week at the Avampato Discovery Museum in Charleston.
The show “Autobiographies: Six West Virginia Artists,” showcases the work of prolific local artists such as Mark Tobin Moore, Robin McClintock, Eric Pardue, Emily Ritchey and Claire Sherwood.
Accompanying that show is “Close to Home: West Virginia Artists from the Permanent Collection." This exhibition presents a selection of modern and contemporary works from artists such as Paula Clendenin, Harold Edwards, James Gibson, Charles Hamilton, June Kilgore, Grace Martin Taylor, Blanche Lazzell and Vernon Howell. This exhibition includes new acquisitions and newly framed works from collections storage.
