CHARLESTON, WV -

 

A new art exhibit, a program about Parkersburg's role in the Civil War and a Marshall County lecture are among the West Virginia Division of Culture and History's lineup of special events. All of the programs are free and open to the public.

The Culture Center in Charleston will have "Water, Wood, Metal, Stone and Oil: A State of Art" through Feb. 18. The center's Balcony Gallery has unveiled a new exhibition featuring 24 pieces of work from the West Virginia State Museum's historical and contemporary art collections. The works span several decades, media and genres, and provide the public with an eclectic selection of the museum's extensive collection.

"Parkersburg: Guardian of the Union" is a lecture scheduled at 6 p.m. Jan. 23. Michael Workman will discuss the Civil War history of Parkersburg and the Little Kanawha region. He will demonstrate the key role that the town and its political leadership played in the statehood movement and then focus on guerrilla warfare in the Little Kanawha Valley.

Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex in Moundsville will present a lecture about recent excavations at a Marshall County site. "Early Industries and Family Life in Marshall County" will be at 7 p.m. on Jan. 30. Jamie Vosvick, supervising archaeologist for Archaeological Consultants of the Midwest, Inc., Wheeling, will discuss new information gleaned about the area's early historic industries and the people involved in them.
