Gerald Van Scyoc Wins 1st Place Award in “Forged by Steel” Exhibit

The works of 24 artists capturing the history of Weirton’s industrial past were unveiled Saturday as part of the “Weirton — The City Forged by Steel” exhibition and awards ceremony. CMA art instructor Gerald Van Scyoc received the 1st place award in the oil painting category.

The competition and exhibit were organized as a way to pay tribute to the impact of the local steel mill on the Weirton community and its residents.

“We are excited to bring so many top-tier artists together to capture our changing downtown,” said Alecia Ford, Forged by Steel show chair. “Our industrial partners, including Frontier Group and ArcelorMittal, are transforming our city through bricks and mortar, but they are also engaging with our community to revive and celebrate the arts.”

Michael McKowen, director of exhibitions for the Oglebay Institute’s Stifel Fine Arts Center, will serve as the juror for the event. A native West Virginian, McKowen has more than 25 years of experience working as a professional designer and artisan for theater, film and events across the country.

A total of $2,300 in prizes will be awarded as part of the event, thanks to a $1,000 sponsorship by the Frontier Group of Companies, a $500 donation from ArcelorMittal and $200 donations from GoGreen, Amerilube and the Renaissance Weirton Corp. The Top of West Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau will provide refreshments.

The Center of Music and Art, located at 264 Main Street, Wintersville, Ohio, is introducing a new program for young singers throughout the valley. Beginning in February 2018, The CMA Singers will begin rehearsing for spring and summer performances of a variety of musical selections from the past and present. Open to any Ohio Valley Youth from grades 3-12, the group will meet every Saturday to rehearse. There is no tuition fee for this group, however, each student will be responsible for purchasing their own music at a discounted rate.

The CMA Singers will consist of two age groups. The younger group will be students ranging from third to sixth grades and the older group will be for students ranging from seventh through twelfth grades. The younger singers will meet at 10 am and the older singers will meet at 11 am on Saturdays. “Students will get to work together with students from various schools while developing their performance and vocal skills.” said the group’s director, Mr. Frank Elliott.

Please contact CMA at 740-264-3111 to schedule an appointment to audition, or e-mail: First audition date is Saturday, January 20th.

Mr. Elliott is a vocal and piano teacher at The Center of Music and Art as well as a substitute teacher at several school districts throughout the valley. Over the past twenty-five years, Mr. Elliott has worked as a show producer for the theme park industry.

For the past twenty seven years, The Center of Music and Art has helped countless musicians and artists hone their skills, while discovering talents that they did not know they possessed. Please visit or Facebook for information regarding the opportunities at CMA.
