Lewisburg, WV – Carnegie Hall’s Winter Exhibits open Friday, January 6, 2023. Carnegie Hall features three rotating galleries, which display the works of regional artists.

There will be opening receptions on Friday, January 6, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
Old Stone Room, located on the ground floor of Carnegie Hall, will feature works by Trish Tuckwiller. Tuckwiller is a mixed-media acrylic artist that is truly inspired by nature and her surroundings. She has over 40 years of experience with textiles/mixed media and continues to improve her skills through self-study of various techniques and classes.
Lewisburg artist Kathy Talley will exhibit her works in the Auditorium Lobby Gallery. Talley is a basket weaver and former home economics instructor for public schools. When not teaching a basket class at Carnegie Hall she visits classrooms in Greenbrier County to teach students about making baskets from scratch by starting with a whole tree.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the Alderson Quilt Guild will be featured in the Museum Gallery (adjacent to the Hamilton Auditorium). The group currently has 32 members representing Greenbrier, Monroe, and Summers Counties, who work on numerous projects throughout the year.
The exhibits are free and open to the public, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The Lobby and Museum Galleries will run through March 31.
