Collection Highlight: Regional

The Art Museum is proud to collect the work of West Virginia artists who have achieved international renown, notably James Edward Davis and Blanche Lazzell, from Maidsville and Clarksburg respectively; the museum has the largest public collection of Lazzell’s work in the world. The visions of these artists resonate in the museum with those of self-taught Appalachian artists who consistently and quietly expressed the rhythms of life in the region.
