"New Traditions" Art Exhibit is presented by YNST Magazine and Wheeling Heritage

Sequestered by mountains older than life itself and a culture marked by close-knit, deep-seated tradition, Appalachia makes for the perfect muse for this gallery show. 

“New Traditions” celebrates the region’s diverse culture and historic arts and craft practices by viewing them with a contemporary lens. Whether it be utilizing traditional techniques with new materials, incorporating or reimagining Appalachian craft, or simply using modern methods to tell the story of the past — this show highlights the connectivity and fusion of the region's then and now.

YNST Magazine and Wheeling Heritage invite you to the opening reception of New Traditions on Friday, May 17 from 6 - 9 p.m. at the Wheeling Artisan Center Gallery (1400 Main Street, Wheeling). Admission is free. New Traditions will remain on display through Saturday, June 14.
