MountainMade Gallery February Exhibit
It’s not too late to take in Annie Morris Simcoe’s exhibit. Her work will be on display in the MountainMade Gallery in Thomas, WV until March 1, 2010. We hope to retain a few pieces.
Annie Simcoe’s handcrafted papers are made from natural fibers and are defined them by her use of threads, to symbolize those things which she views most important, those things that connect us: relationships and the natural landscape. Eight years ago, she began making handmade paper for Christmas cards. Her craft has grown to include a variety of pieces, and this exhibit includes framed works, sculpture and lamps. Most notably is the access and affordability of her work. You can purchase an original work for $30-350.

The mountains of West Virginia have long been revered and respected for their role in shaping our history, culture and heritage. West Virginia is located in the heart of the Appalachian Region, a 200,000 square mile area that follows the Appalachian Mountains from southern New York to northern Mississippi. It includes parts of 12 states and all of West Virginia.
While the isolation of the mountains helps to preserve our state's largely unspoiled natural beauty, it can also make it difficult for our talented artists and craftspeople to gain access to the best markets in which to sell their work.
