West Virginia Wesleyan College’s Sleeth Gallery to host first artist talk of academic year

BUCKHANNON – The Sleeth Gallery kicked off its 2021-2022 season with Excerpts and Singles, a solo exhibition by Bob Marsh, currently running through Sept. 23. A closing reception will be held on Thursday, Sept. 23 at 4:30 p.m. followed by an artist talk at 6 p.m.

The Sleeth Gallery is located on the first floor of McCuskey Hall at West Virginia Wesleyan College, at the intersection of East Main Street and College Avenue in Buckhannon. All events at The Sleeth Gallery are free and open to the public.

Bob Marsh is an associate professor at the Kendall College of Art & Design, where he teaches sculpture and functional art. Marsh’s “inspirations come from both common culture and the fine arts, and by default, the signifiers associated with them. This duality of inspiration is mirrored in my studio production, which allows for a constant feedback loop of both calculated choices and serendipitous discoveries. I desire the finished works to have the critical lens of formal inquiry, contextual theory and visual ambiguity.” 

The work included in this multi-media exhibition “pay homage to blue-chip artists and intentionally reference many inherently blue-collar pursuits, such as home remodeling, automobile modification, and local sports leagues.”

The Sleeth Gallery is looking forward to once again welcoming the public after a year and a half of online exhibitions and artist talks; however, campus policies, such as masks and social distancing will continue to be observed until further notice.

For more information about The Sleeth Gallery or larger press photos, please contact Gallery Director, Crystal Ann Brown, at sleethgallery@wvwc.edu. Additional examples of Marsh’s work can be found at the artist’s website: https://bobmarshstudio.com/home.html
