The best way to meet is through a friend. Here are some West Virginia artists I recommend:
Michael Anderson is multi-talented from computer guru (my go-to guy) to photography and linocuts. He can be found on Facebook at Michael Anderson and is updating a website for online sales of print work.
Wendy Clark weaves her own hand dyed yarns into scarves, wraps and purses. The wild and wonderful scenery surrounding a comfortable log home studio provide inspiration and a necessary peaceful environment. Her collections are sold nationally and on her website wenweave.com
Nellie Rose Davis grew up with parents manipulating fabrics and immersing them in dye pots creating colorful shibori garments and accessories. With her own flare, NellieRose scarves and dresses are marketed through national galleries thanks to assistance from the Tamarack Foundation’s From WV to Urban Markets. Look for them in your local gallery or online at NellieRoseTextiles.com
Jan Dodgins shows us the beauty of West Virginia through her camera lens often coming close to wild animals and flora.
Connect with Jan on Facebook at Jan Dodgins
Lisa Kovatch can be found at WestWind Potters in Harpers Ferry, WV. This shop is filled with American Made artwork (including my mats and artwork) and is a great destination when visiting the National Park of Harpers Ferry. Her own line of pottery has been selected as a 2015 NICHE Finalist, and is sold nationally under the name of LK Pottery
Michael O’Brien works in stained glass, mixed media, and drawings all built up in layers of materials creating stories. The musician side can be found jamming in a variety of styles with Hampshire County friends. His work is available at Anderson’s Corner, 8 West Main Street, Romney and you can meet Michael there during the Highlands Studio Tour in the fall. His web presence is at mkobrien333.tumblr.com
Rebecca Wudarski makes Tucker County her home and muse. A musician, mixed media artist and barista at Tip Top Coffees in Thomas, Rebecca lives an artist’s lifestyle. Visit her website and look around www.RebeccaWudarksi.com
