Student Photography Exhibit

  • 116 North Queen Street Martinsburg, WV, 25401

Berkeley Arts Council Looks Back at Four Decades of the Boys and Girls’ Club Photography

In celebration of Youth Art Month, The Berkeley Arts Council presents a retrospective exhibit of student photographs created over the years in the Martinsburg Boys and Girls Club photography program. The exhibit will be on display at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg, February 22 through April 1.

The program, led by teacher Pat Murphy, has produced numerous national and regional winners in various competitions. Murphy started out helping the kids in the program in exchange for being able to use the darkroom for himself. Over time, he spent more time working with the students and less time on his own work. It’s been his passion for nearly 50 years.

Murphy’s takes an “apprentice” approach to teaching photography. He starts them with black and white film processed and printed in the club’s darkroom. He gives the students assignments to create images in different disciplines, such as portraits, architecture, landscape, macro (close-up photography) and various alternative processes. The students learn about composition and the importance of lighting, both natural and artificial.

The exhibit is curated by Rip Smith and Gary Bergel, who sifted through literally thousands of prints in the basement of the club to select a representative sample of images that exemplify the best the program has to offer.

Gallery hours are Wed-Fri 11-5, Sat 11-4. There will be a reception Saturday, March 4 from 5-7pm.

The Diviners (play)

  • Hedgesville High School

The Thespians of Hedgesville High School have taken on the challenge of an emotional play by Jim Leonard, Jr. 

Show times are at 7PM on Nov. 17, 18 and 19. Tickets are $5. Location is at Hedgesville High School.

SUMMARY: This marvelously theatrical play is the story of a disturbed young man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher in southern Indiana in the early 1930s. When the boy was young he almost drowned. This trauma and the loss of his mother in the same accident has left him deathly afraid of water. The preacher, set on breaking away from a long line of Kentucky family preachers, is determined not to do what he does best. He works as a mechanic for the boy's father. The town doesn't have a preacher and the women try to persuade him to preach while he tries to persuade the child to wash. When the preacher finally gets the boy in the river and is washing him, the townspeople mistake the scene for a baptism. They descend on the event and, in the confusion, the boy drowns. (A special arrangement with Samuel French).

  • Library

As part of the Library "History Reads" Program hear David Phillips speak about his book on the Jesse Scouts.

Excerpt: One of the most important functions of the cavalry during the Civil War involved the collection of intelligence. Skilled volunteers were selected from many cavalry regiments and these brave men moved in the advance or on the flanks of their regiments in order to prevent any surprise attacks. Frequently, they moved independently to collect information on the presence, condition, and intentions of the enemy forces in their vicinity.

In order to do this effectively, many of these men began to wear the enemy's uniform as they conducted their operations. COME HEAR MORE DURING THIS PRESENTATION!

At 2:30 PM enjoy the Sacagawea historical perfomance.
