Huntington Museum of Art and Camden Park present ‘Art on a Limb’


The Huntington Museum of Art will celebrate the holidays with the “Camden Park Presents: Art on a Limb” exhibit.

The exhibit is comprised of six different artistic components. The West Virginia Bead Society strings thousands of glass beads to create ornaments. Area Folk Artists garnish the hallways with decorations. The Tri-State Needle Arts trims its tree using fabrics, thread, colors and textures.  The Wood Workers use lathe-turned and hand-carved sculptures to decorate the tree. The Calligraphers Guild creates finely crafted artful designs to dress up its tree.

In the main entrance is the sixth and final part of the “Camden Park Presents: Art on a Limb” exhibit. The Palette Tree is located in the main entrance of the HMA. 48 different artists created the Palette Tree with individually painted and designed palettes.

The holiday exhibit will be showcased Tuesday through Jan. 10, 2016.

The “Camden Park Presents: Holiday Open House” is Dec. 6, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the HMA. Admission to the open house is free. The event will feature performances by local artists, a visit from Santa Claus and art activities for children.
