Huntington Area Art Society to return to Cellar Door on Sept. 9



The Huntington Area Art Society lecture series will return this fall with “Post-Impressionism to Cubism” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 9, at the Cellar Door, 905 Third Ave.

The series’ lead presenter, Dr. Heather Stark, assistant professor of art and design at Marshall University, noted that she developed the season’s enveloping theme, “Visual Revolutions: the 20th Century,” in response to the interest of community members who attended the pilot sessions last spring.

“When I looked back at the suggestion cards, there were several that made mention of a desire for further understanding of modern movements,” Stark said.

Although the lecture beings at 6:30 p.m., participants are welcome to arrive early for conversation and refreshments. The society’s fall lecture series will continue at the same time and place Oct. 7, Nov. 11 and Dec. 9.

Seating is limited. The series costs $40, payable by check to Marshall University. The check may be taken to the presentation or to the Visual Arts Center at 927 Third Ave. It may also be mailed to the Huntington Area Art Society, c/o School of Art and Design, Marshall University, at One John Marshall Drive, Huntington, WV 25755. Please include VAC Special Programs/Art Society in the subject line.
