Read more about Liz below:
Liz Neumann our past president who represented the “heart and face” of art in the Wheeling Area.
Liz was loved by one and all, not only for her devotion to the arts but for her love of people in general and her charismatic personality. Liz has touched the hearts of each and every one of us at ARTWORKS
in ways that we will never forget. If you knew Liz you know what I am talking about. If you didn’t know Liz, you missed the opportunity of knowing a beautiful, talented and gracious lady. Her charisma and her dynamic personality was deeply expressed in her art.
For those of you that don’t know about ARTWORKS around town, we are a nonprofit organization located at Centre Market. The proceeds from this fundraiser will help to support our community outreach programs. Our mission is not only to provide a space for artists of all medium to display their work but also to instill the love and appreciation of art in both young and old in our community. We have outreach programs in elderly care facilities where Janet Sheehan heads up a committee of our members to assist the elderly patients with monthly art projects. Judy Minder heads the Student Art Show of Excellence in the spring where art teachers from schools all over the Ohio Valley encourage their students to participate and many cash prizes are awarded. We have a monthly art exhibit in our main Gallery highlighting one artist for that month and a student exhibit in our North Gallery highlighting one school or student group. A free reception open to the public and generously sponsored by our members kicks off the monthly opening which is always held on the first Friday of the month. Bob Sako holds a free critique session quarterly in which anyone can participate. Many of our artist members hold workshops and give lessons in various mediums throughout the year. Jeff Mamone organizes the Paint Historic Wheeling project which is held in the summer brings in out of town artists to do plein aire painting all over the Wheeling Area. The 4 day event includes workshops from outstanding artists in their medium, an exhibit with judging and cash prize awards, and a free reception open to the public.
