Overview

A “teachable moment” is an unplanned opportunity that arises in the classroom where a teacher has a chance to offer insight to his or her students; it is a fleeting opportunity that must be sensed and seized by the teacher. Teachers are some of the most influential people in the world. Teachers are perceptive, caring, and patient with the task of shaping minds, hearts and imaginations. For this special exhibition, A Teachable Moment, the gallery serves as the classroom. Coinciding with Youth Art Month, the four week exhibition gives West Virginia Art Educators an opportunity to share their original artwork at Tamarack.

Tamarack’s David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery seeks original entries of two and three dimensional artwork, in any media and subject matter, from working and retired Art Educators who currently practice and live in West Virginia.

Overview
 

Usually “surf and turf” refers to a meal consisting of a meat and seafood. For this exhibition, we are simply using the phrase to playfully allude to the area where land and sea meet. Whether it’s a beach, an island, or a rocky cliff, these places hold a special meaning for many. They are homes to specific landmarks like lighthouses and piers. 

Tamarack’s David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is seeking original two and three dimensional work, of any media that, figuratively and metaphorically, represents the theme of any space where a body of land encounters a body of water; including, but not limited to oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, streams, wetlands, ponds, and even puddles.

This exhibition is only open to Tamarack juried artists. For more information about how to become a Tamarack artist, visit this link.

Overview

Bridges dot the Mountain State’s landscape, carrying roads and railways over creeks and rivers. There are 34 bridges on the National Register of Historic Places in West Virginia. The oldest bridge still in use in West Virginia is the Elm Grove Stone Arch Bridge, constructed in 1817. The most famous of all of West Virginia’s historic bridges is the 1849 Wheeling Suspension Bridge. 

West Virginia’s best-known bridge of modern times is the steel arch New River Gorge bridge on U.S. 19 in Fayette County. It is the centerpiece of the annual Bridge Day festival. These man-made structures demonstrate the state’s history, ingenuity, and compliment the natural beauty. Tamarack’s David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery seeks original entries of two and three dimensional artwork, in any media, celebrating West Virginia’s bridges.  

This exhibition is only open to Tamarack juried artists. For more information about how to become a Tamarack artist, visit this link.
