Head Over Hills
It is easy to look at West Virginia’s beauty with a jaded eye. When the scenery you’re surrounded by on your commute to work is so picturesque, that it looks like the places people book on vacation sites to “get away from it all,” we tend to forget how fortunate we are to be surrounded by the magical views our mountains grant us. Through our creative endeavors we can capture and share a small piece of the magic that is West Virginia landscapes, creatures, and stories, which is exactly the goal for ‘Head Over Hills,’ our next themed exhibition. The David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is asking you to fall in love all over again with the place we call home and help us share the views we see daily with our guests and visitors.
