Virginia Price

WINTERSVILLE — Muskingum University’s Louis Palmer Gallery will feature the one-woman watercolor show of Wintersville resident Virginia Price, which will run from Wednesday through Sept. 25.

For hours to view the exhibit contact the gallery at (740) 826-8211.

Professor Yan Sun, director of the Muskingum University’s Art Department, invited Price to do the one-woman watercolor show, the name of which is “100 Years of Art and Colorful Living.”

Price, who turned 100 in recent weeks, has been a Signature member of the Ohio Watercolor Society since 1979 and is an accomplished watercolorist whose interests vary from florals with their intricate abstract patterns to Victorian houses and aged objects with a sense of mystery. She has conducted many watercolor workshops for Oglebay Institute and the Steubenville Art Association.

She has won numerous awards through the years and has been accepted and won awards in national, state and regional exhibits, some of which include Ohio Watercolor Society (Grumbacher Gold Medal); Bethany College (merit awards); All Ohio Fine Art (first award); By Women’s Hands (Marietta College, merit); Petersburg, Va., Festival (best of show); Lynchburg, Va., Festival (merit awards); Westerville Art Exhibit (two best of shows and firsts); Steubenville Art Exhibit (best of show and merits); Upper Ohio Valley (merit awards); and Salt Fork Festival (governor’s award, best Ohio scene award, Sen. John Glenn Award and first in fine art).

Her work appears in many collections, both private and commercial, including the governor’s mansion of Ohio, Bethany College and Trinity Medical Center East and West. As a former artist for a West Virginia glass factory specializing in one-of-a-kind hand-painted lamps, she painted special orders for the late Arch Moore, former governor of West Virginia, and the late former President Richard M. Nixon.

Price is a signature member of the Ohio Watercolor Society since 1979 and the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society; a member of the Steubenville Art Association, Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild, Oglebay Institute; and is a charter member of the National Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.
