“3rd Avenue Art Gallery and Custom Framing by Jenks” are hosting award winning artist Karen Carter-Smith for a one woman show at their Huntington Gallery, 733 3RD Avenue, on Friday, August 13th at 5:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
Karen is a native of West Virginia. She graduated from Marshall University with a Bachelors of Art Education degree K-12. She is currently an Art teacher in Kanawha County and resides in Saint Albans, WV where she owns and operates her own art studio, Cre8 Studios Upstairs. She teaches stained glass, mosaics and other mediums. She has taught for 31 years in the public school system, multiple camps and workshops including the Huntington Museum of Art. She dibbles and dabs in all media but her first true love was metal. The large stainless steel sculpture of mother and child holding hands called “Walk with Me” on the front lawn of the Cabell County Board of Education is one of her earliest metal sculptures, a gift to her son. She currently sells her work at HIMA gift shop
The Gallery hopes you will stop by to meet Karen and view her works this Friday at 5:30. This exhibit will be on view through the month of August.
