The Bethany Fall Annual is an exhibition of original art and craft in any medium created by artists and artisans living within an 80-mile radius of the College. Through the decades, the event has featured the work of hundreds of artists, both amateurs and professionals, serving as a dynamic point of connection between the College and the greater community.
This year’s Bethany Fall Annual was dedicated to its creator, Darline Nicholson, who served as dean of women and director of college activities at Bethany and is a long-time supporter of the arts. The 2011 show included 47 works of art by 24 artists.
April Waltz of Wheeling, W.Va., received the Best of Show honor for her watercolor work titled “Organic Orchid.” Five works were selected for Merit Awards and five for Honorable Mention.
