Exhibit Opening: Gregg Oxley’s Wheeling is Haunted
December 13, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us Thursday, Dec. 13, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. for the opening reception of “Wheeling is Haunted,” works by Gregg Oxley.
Gregg Oxley is a mixed media and installation artist from Charleston, WV. He uses found objects, antiquated papers, forgotten photographs, handwriting samples and other ephemera to create work that inspires a nostalgic tone that sometimes plays on modern themes.
The title “Wheeling is Haunted” comes from the idea that the people in the photos Gregg uses aren’t around anymore, but they still exist in the photos. “The idea is that where the show goes, these people are haunting the exhibit,” he explained.
If you can’t make it to the reception, be sure to stop by and browse the show! It will run through Jan. 10, on the third floor of the Wheeling Artisan Center.
