Like a signature, artwork is proof of identity and intent. Throughout an artist's career, they work to find their own unique voice in which to communicate. This voice leaves their mark on its viewer. This exhibition is an opportunity for Tamarack artists to exhibit their signature style.
Tamarack's David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is seeking original two and three dimensional work, of any subject and media that represents the artist's distinctive approach to creating art. For this exhibition, we ask for an artist statement to accompany submissions.

Bridges dot the Mountain State's landscape, carrying roads and railways over creeks and rivers. There are 34 bridges on the National Register of Historic Places in West Virginia. The oldest bridge still in use in West Virginia is the Elm Grove Stone Arch Bridge, constructed in 1817. The most famous of all of West Virginia's historic bridges is the 1849 Wheeling Suspension Bridge.
West Virginia's best-known bridge of modern times is the steel arch New River Gorge bridge on U.S. 19 in Fayette County. It is the centerpiece of the annual Bridge Day festival. These man-made structures demonstrate the state's history, ingenuity, and compliment the natural beauty. Tamarack's David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery seeks original entries of two and three dimensional artwork, in any media, celebrating West Virginia's bridges.
