Ends on August 19, 2019


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.
