Gallery Talk with Honnie and Art Wagner on March 2nd

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 25, 2015

For More Information:

(304) 462-4115

GLENVILLE, WV – You are invited to join artists Honnie and Art Wagner in a Gallery Talk on Monday, March 2nd from 10:00-11:00 a.m. in the Spears Gallery in the Glenville State College Fine Arts Center.

The pair will talk about the works of three generations within one immigrant family of realist painters and their visual journey as a metaphor for the multigenerational immigrant experience in West Virginia. These works are currently on display in the gallery show, ‘Three Generations of Asturian-American Painters.’

The exhibit includes pieces by Art, his mother Honnie Wagner, and his grandfather Emilio Fernández Alvarez for a dynamic show that encompasses around 100 years of culture and history in West Virginia’s Asturian communities that got their start in the early 1900s.

Emilio Fernández Alvarez, Honnie A. Wagner, and Art Z. Wagner

Emilio Fernández Alvarez, Honnie A. Wagner, and Art Z. Wagner

Honnie is a retired school teacher who enjoys painting picturesque Spanish scenes. She learned clay and molded sculpture from her father as a child and majored in art at West Virginia University, but suspended her artistic activity when she became a mother. In 1977 she visited her family in Asturias for the first time, meeting cousins, aunts, and uncles she had never known. She was charmed and fascinated by the traditional urban and rural lifestyles of her family in Asturias. Her paintings reflect images captured on film during visits to her ancestral home.

Art is a clinical social worker. As a child, Art played with his mother and grandfather’s art supplies, explored their books, and absorbed their art, which was displayed in the home. As a young studio artist, Art lived in Spain for two years, visiting his mother’s Asturian family on holidays. He later studied Asturian culture for three summers in the Asturian capital, Oviedo, in order to learn more about the culture his maternal grandparents left behind. These childhood and adult experiences led to his focus on the psychological, relational, and spiritual aspects of añoranza, or longing, through images of the human figure and landscape.

The show is open to the public and will run until Friday, March 6th. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and one hour before all GSC Fine Arts events.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  February 20, 2015

Dr. Gary Morris

Dr. Gary Morris

GLENVILLE, WV – Glenville State College Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Gary Morris has again been selected to participate in the West Virginia Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) Summer Fellowship Program. In addition to the 2015 fellowship, he was also chosen to take part in the program back in 2011 and 2012.

During the nine-week program, Morris and fellow scientist Dr. Travis Salisbury will continue their research collaboration on a potential therapeutic target in breast cancer cells called the aryl hydrocarbon receptor. Morris, who also serves as chair of the GSC Department of Science and Mathematics, says the study could lead to understanding how to treat and reduce breast cancer risk in the context of human obesity.

He and Salisbury, who is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology, Physiology, and Toxicology at Marshall University’s School of Medicine, initiated their research in 2011.

The mission of the WV-INBRE, as part of the National Institutes of Health IDeA Program, is to establish a consortium among selected institutions of higher education in West Virginia to enhance their capacity for educating and training faculty members and students in biomedical research.

“Since Glenville State College is a part of the consortium, our faculty are eligible to apply for the fellowship opportunity, but only two or three are awarded each summer. I’m very happy to be given the opportunity to continue the research that Travis and I have been working on,” said Morris.

The pair will conduct their research at the Byrd Biotechnology Science Center at Marshall University. During the summer Morris explains that he will spend Monday through Thursday in Huntington and then commute back to Glenville on Fridays to catch up on administrative work for GSC and to spend the weekend with his family.

For more information about the research, contact Morris at or (304) 462-6301.

GLENVILLE, WV—Students in Glenville State College’s theatre group are gearing up for ‘Antigone,’ their first production of the spring semester.

“A modern adaptation of the ancient Greek tragedy of the same name, Antigone was written by French playwright Jean Anouilh in 1942, and first performed in Paris in 1944. The English translation was written by Barbara Bray. This is a play about what is sacred, what needs to be defended, and what should be done to defend it. It is also about truly defending what you believe in, to the death,” said GSC Professor of Communications and Theatre Director Dennis Wemm.

Cast members for the performance include: Victoria Guillory from Harpers Ferry (Jefferson County), West Virginia as the narrator; Mary Lewis from Harpers Ferry (Jefferson County), West Virginia as Antigone; Lindsey ‘Luna’ Acree from Ripley (Jackson County), West Virginia as Ismene; Neysa Brown from Alum Bridge (Lewis County), West Virginia as the nurse; Andrew Mattox from Pineville (Wyoming County), West Virginia as Haemon; Travis ‘Tyler’ Hammack from Spencer (Roane County), West Virginia as Creon; Francois Scarboro from Cheverly, Maryland as Creon’s personal secretary; Katie Miller from Gassaway (Braxton County), West Virginia as Eurydice; Sarah Ann Tresize from Haywood (Harrison County), West Virginia as Jonas; Jeremiah Underwood from Summersville (Nicholas County), West Virginia as Binns; Cody Mullens from Calvin (Nicholas County), West Virginia as Snout; Ryan Helmick from Grafton (Taylor County), West Virginia as Wedge; and Brittany Robinson from Mabie (Randolph County), West Virginia as the messenger.

While the subject matter is serious, parents should find no issues with language or content for younger children. However, the play does contain moments of violence. For more information, contact Wemm at or (304) 462-6323.
