Artworks’ March Exhibits on Display
WHEELING — March at Artworks Around Town promises to be an exciting bright spot in this otherwise dreary winter.
Betsy Cox is keeping her Retrospective Collection in the Studio Gallery for another month, and a new artist is debuting his skills in the Student Gallery.
Cox’s painting talents are beautifully arrayed in the north gallery at Artworks. Watercolors, oils and pastels show the range of her skills in everything she attempts. Best known recently for her award-winning ceramic work, her paintings are a must-see as well. Cox sells originals, prints and note cards at the historic Center Market Gallery.
For the first time, Logan Picard Keller will have his artwork on display, and Artworks is honored to host this promising young talent. Born in France, Keller has been drawing and creating art since he was 2 1/2 years old. For the most part, he is self educated, having no previous formal training. He was introduced to different mediums as he was growing up by his mother, Anissa, who is also an artist.
Keller considers himself to be an experimental artist, using several different styles in crafting his acrylic pours. In addition to painting, he loves to sculpt and design his own characters for gaming and comic books using pencils and markers. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of his work will be given to the Nsaba Orphanage of Uganda, Africa to support the organization and children in need.
Artworks Around Town is a non profit charitable and educational gallery and art center for the benefit of the artists and general public of the region. It is open six days a week from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday except for Friday, when closing is at 6 p.m.
