4 Exhibition 280 Daywood Gallery October 10 2015 - February 14 2016 Opening reception for this event takes place on Saturday October 10 2015 from 5 to 7 p.m. Admission is free. Throughout the history of the Huntington Museum of Art one of its most important roles has been providing a venue for regional artists. Exhibition 280 is a regional juried exhibition presented by the Huntington Museum of Art in altered versions since 1953 one year after the founding of the institution. Originally the radius for eligibility was small reaching out to artists living in an 80-mile radius of Huntington. Later the boundaries were widened to 180 miles then 280. Now all artists who are 18 years of age or older who reside in West Virginia and her contiguous neighbor states Virginia Kentucky Ohio Pennsylvania and Maryland may participate. We are pleased to work with Patterson Sims our juror for this years competition.
