CU Art Profs Pieces On Display in Regional Art Show

Athens, W.Va. – Concord University is home to many artists. Professors Jack Sheffler and James Biggs submitted their work to the Huntington Museum of Art. Their work was juried against an assortment of works by visual artists ranging from paintings and sculptures to photography and the new addition of video art.

Hand picked was one of Sheffler’s mixed media paintings entitled “Momento” and one of James Biggs’ sculptures. Both pieces of art will be displayed in the regional exhibit sanctioned “Exhibition 280” until July 1, 2007.

The display features 130 works by 93 artists from West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Sheffler explains that being a professor isn’t his only job, “As an artist, I must share my work with the public in order to get responses. The Huntington Museum of Art is a big venue, museums are prestigious, and therefore it is an honor to be one of the chosen artists.”

The museum is located at 2033 McCoy Road, Huntington, W.Va. The Huntington Museum of Art is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The museum is closed to the public on Monday.
