Art and Earth Reception Saturday April 12


The artists’ reception for the Berkeley Arts Council’s Fourth Annual Art and Earth Juried Exhibit will be held tomorrow (Saturday) evening, April 12 from 5-7 pm at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg.

This year’s exhibit received a record number of entries from 14 states. Juror Lauren Schell Dickens, Assistant Curator for Contemporary Art at the Corcoran Art Museum Selected 36 artworks from 27 artists from 12 states. The exhibit is on display through May 4.

Come downtown to the Art Works and meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments at our reception. If you haven’t yet visited the Berkeley Art Works, now would be a great time to check out fine art and fine craft items by our “Artists at The Works” co-op group AND a wonderful exhibit juried from a wide range of submissions from around the country as well as all over West Virginia.

The Berkeley Art Works, a service of the Berkeley Arts Council, is the realization of the long-held dream of the arts community in Martinsburg and Berkeley County West Virginia: to have a community-based arts facility that supports local and regional artists, brings quality arts experiences for the members of the public, and provides a wide range of arts learning experiences for local residents, artists, and artisans.
