The Office of Student Activities is looking for students, as well as professional and amateur female West Virginian artists, who would be interested in participating in the sixth annual Women of West Virginia Art Expo.

The event is planned for Tuesday, March 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the second floor of the Falcon Center on the Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College shared main campus.

Students, as well as professional artists, may apply to participate by sending an e-mail to Sue Conrad at Sue.Conrad@fairmontstate.edu to request a participation form. Requests to participate are due by March 5.

Types of art being requested for the event include pottery, jewelry, glass, paintings, portraits, sculpture and multi-media. Local authors are also invited. Those who participate will have the opportunity to sell and/or to display their work at the expo.

"We are looking for creative, appealing, unique creations to share with the Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College community," said Laurie Johnston, Director of Student Activities.

"The event will be filled with powerful female art and warm fellowship. This is a great opportunity for budding artists to experience the thrill of displaying their works of art."
