The library on Emerson Avenue is currently hosting the artwork of local artist John Dawson in the gallery above the periodical section. John’s works consist primarily of oil landscapes of West Virginia. They tend to be realism with a touch of impressionism. He has produced and sold prints of a large sawmill in Nicholas County, WV. He has also painted homesteads and pets, on commission.
The library, which is located at 3100 Emerson Avenue in Parkersburg, will display John’s artwork in the gallery above the periodical section until November 29, 2016.
