Big Top Steam – Exhibit February 23 through April 28
Steam at Harper’s Ferry held an Artists’ Reception on opening day, February 23. The featured Big Top Steam artists are Leigh Anne Cassell (Charles Town, illustration) and Lindsey Donaldson (Ranson, illustration). In addition, there are two special installations by Eric Holstine (Charleston, metalwork/stained glass) and Phil Berneburg (Bolivar studio, ceramics). Steam’s Resident Artist, Jason Edwards, has worked his 3D magic once again with two circus-themed banners. The response to the exhibit has been great! Thank you everyone who has come by!
Shameless Steam – Rescheduled for April
The next Shameless Steam arts-related business series will be held in April. We’re working out the details for a very engaging speaker, so we’ve postponed the event to early April. If you are interested in promoting your arts-related business or your own work, please see the website under the post “Call for Presentations!” or follow the links under the “Events” tab.
What’s New at Steam
In addition to the Big Top Steam and special installation artists, Steam at Harper’s Ferry has exclusive Harper’s Ferry themed postcards for sale. The first postcard design is based on a photo of the Harpers Ferry Tunnel. Two more will be available shortly. We also have copies of the recently released Alan Moore League of Extraordinary Gentlemen hard cover graphic novel, “Nemo: Heart of Ice.” Finally, for your Easter baskets, we have Wilbur Chocolate!
