Art on a Limb
November 24, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Huntington Museum of Art will present Art on a Limb, an exhibit of holiday trees decorated with ornaments created by regional artists from Nov. 24, 2020, through Jan. 3, 2021. Although the Art on a Limb exhibit will take place, Holiday Open House at HMA has been canceled this year because of COVID-19 concerns.
The Art on a Limb exhibit showcases the work of artists in The Huntington Calligraphers’ Guild, Tri-Area Needle Arts, West Virginia Bead Society, and the Western Weavers Guild of the West Virginia Basketmakers Association. The Palette Tree in HMA’s Virginia Van Zandt Great Hall features individual artist palettes featuring the artwork of dozens of regional artists, including Paula Clendenin, Charles Jupiter Hamilton, Lee Ann Blevins, and the late Chuck Ripper, among others.
“The groups creating ornaments for ‘Art on a Limb’ have long relationships with the Huntington Museum of Art and take pride in the artworks they create to be displayed on the holiday trees throughout the Museum,” said Cindy Dearborn, HMA Education Director. “We are grateful to them for their dedication to this exhibit.”
In addition to the artist-decorated holiday trees, HMA will present a glass creche by Roberto Moretti in the Decorative Arts Gallery, which is sponsored by Mountain Health Network. Also, interfaith books and symbols will be discussed in a December online episode of “Friends and Neighbors with Mr. George,” which features HMA Educator George Lanham.
To help with social distancing HMA is limiting the number of people in attendance. Free online tickets are available at Eventbrite.com or hmoa.org, where visitors can click on the Admission Policy bar at the top of the home page.
