Buckhannon artist wins 2019 W.Va. Culture and History award

Local artist Suzan Morgan was awarded a $500 Merit Award at the W.Va. Juried Exhibition in Charleston on November 17. The award was given by the W.Va. Division of Culture and History.

Her piece, entitled “Who will be Next?” is a recreation of Vincent Van Gough’s “Starry Night” with the addition of a bomber plane dropping its payload from the night sky.

The hand-dyed, needle felted piece brings attention to the age-old horror of cultural destruction during war and times of religious upheaval. It suggests that the destruction of any foreign culture’s art is also a threat to cultural heritage around the world including those of modern Western societies.

Ms. Morgan has been a resident of Upshur County for the past 30 years and has lived in Buckhannon since 2000. She is a longtime member of Artistry on Main gallery, where the public may view and purchase her textile work.
