Infamous Art Gallery opens “Strawberries Any Way Ya’ Slice Em’ 4”


BUCKHANNON — As the West Virginia 80th Strawberry Festival official commenced, the Infamous Art Gallery joined in by opening its strawberry festivities on Saturday, May 14. The gallery offered several beautiful pieces of artwork by a variety of artists, both local and visiting.

One young artist of Upshur County, Maekenzie Tenney, age 22, was in attendance, showing off her beautiful work. “I’m very fond of mushrooms, which is what I started out painting when I was younger. I decided to incorporate the strawberry theme by turning the strawberries into mushrooms and bringing representation to West Virginia since morels are in season,” expressed Tenney. Her first “displayed” piece of work was just a few months ago at the Infamous Art Gallery for the “Free for all” theme.

Bright colors and florals are Tenney’s specialty as she is drawn to the “pop” of the colors. Tenney started painting at the age of 13, in hopes to follow in her older sister’s footsteps to become an artist. When she first began her artistic hobby, Tenney did not paint on canvases like most artists. In fact, her first work of art was painted on a piece of cardboard left over from a television box.

Come out and enjoy the wonderful artwork and music the Infamous Art Gallery has to offer. Wonderful food is available that incorporates the strawberry theme. The gallery will be open the duration of the Strawberry Festival from noon to 9 p.m. until the festivals last day, Sunday, May 22.
