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.
