New Year, New Art

The start of the new year is leaving everyone tired! After the miniature show, it seems it is hard to get going again.

January and February will be devoted to new artists and new works. The Exhibition hall will focus on the new members of the Gallery, and be supported by new works of the regular members, things we have not displayed before.

Ron Haeberle has a large amount of new watercolors, some urban, but most featuring the back woods around this part of West Virginia.

Spring Theme

Spring may be when a young man’s fancy turns to, well, you know, but the artists of the Renaissance Gallery turns to thoughts of spring painting challenge. This year’s Spring Fine Arts Exhibition will be all about color, and how well you can use it in the composition and presentation of your art. "Color and its Complement", is the theme, challenge and title of this May’s show. The artist will take one color as the primary element of composition and work with its complement to bring forth his/her ideas.

Now the real work begins. First up is to get the prospectus out!

December 19, 2009 a beginning

Welcome to the blog of the Renaissance Art Gallery in Huntington, WV. We are an artist co-op consisting of local artist who are showing original art, all local grown as an alternative to mass produced, generic art that has no relevance to the local culture.

We are located in down town Huntington, in the old high school building, corner of 8th street and 9th Avenue. This building has been repurposed to serve the needs of the community, rather than simply tearing it down.

Each year we have a number of open entry shows which bring rather unique artwork to the public notice.

We also have ongoing classes for both adults and kids.
