Frankenstein! The Opening!

Frankenstein! opened on Halloween at West Liberty University’s Nutting Gallery. The reception was scheduled to run 6 to 8 pm, but the last visitors to the gallery did not leave until after 9:30! It was a fun, energy-filled evening, with lots of positive feedback about the 38 works in the show. Check out the slide show of the opening:

Frankenstein! The Exhibition

The Nutting Gallery at West Liberty University opened the exhibition Frankenstein! on Halloween, October 31, 2012. The exhibition consists of work by 38 artists, each work being based on Mary Shelly’s novel, Frankenstein.

The artists in this exhibition include Betsy Cox, Patricia Croft, Ron Donoghue, Brian Fencl, Jenny Filius, Dan Gerdeman, Jim Haizlett, Kyle Hallum, Cheryl Harshman, Gary Henzler, Darcy Huffman, Mark Janicko, Moon Jung Kang, George Kocar, Victoria Lavorini, David Lesako, Mitch Lyons, Angela Mascolino, Steve McCallum, Laura McLaughlan, Paul Padgett, Eric Pardue, Susan Phillips, Eric Price, Shawn Quinlan, Cecy Rose, Bob Sako, Paul Schifino, Theresa Cress Sharp, Melanie Steffl, Nancy Tirone, Robert Villamagna, Neal Warren, Ken Westfall, and Jonathan Walsh.

I work on the exhibition schedule a year or more in advance. While I was planning the 2012-13 exhibition schedule, I realized that the third show of the fall semester would begin on October 31. Halloween! This was too good to pass up, and thus the Frankenstein theme was born.

Of the thirty-eight artists participated in the exhibition, sixteen of the artists in the Frankenstein exhibition come from WV, seven from Ohio, fourteen from Pennsylvania, and one from Seattle. Seven of the artists are WLU art faculty, and nine are WLU alumni. There is a wide range of media being represented, including painting, drawing, sculpture, clay, fiber, and mixed-media. Here is a slide show of the exhibition:
