It is always nice to be able to recognize the talents of many of our residents.
The Weirton community has such an opportunity on Saturday while also paying tribute to the man who inspired so many to tap into their own artistic abilities.
The fourth-annual Robert Haworth Memorial Art Exhibition will take place Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m., at the Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center.
This year's featured artist is Mary Ann June, a former student of Haworth who has completed 500 original works. Several of those pieces, as well as work from other Haworth students and local artists, will be on display during the event.
Haworth served many years as a teacher in both Hancock and Brooke counties, but is remembered primarily for his time as an art teacher at Weir High. The art show pays tribute to his influence by showcasing the work of one of his students each year.
Whether you knew Haworth, were one of his many students, or simply enjoy learning more about art or the history or our area, we hope you will take some time to attend this year's exhibition.
We thank Dr. Ray Greco and the members of the exhibit committee for their hard work to put on this showcase.
We also would like to thank the Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center for hosting the yearly event.
