3rd Annual Art Hop Comes to Weirton and Wellsburg

The Top of WV Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and Arts Council, alongside the Barn with Inn, are excited to host their third annual Art Hop on October 29th. The free all-day event will take place across six locations in Weirton and Wellsburg and feature the works of 30+ artists, authors, and performers. The stops in the Art Hop include the Historic Sarah Miller House, Martha’s Gallery, Brooke County Public Library, Millsop Community Center, Mary H. Weir Public Library, and Summit Art Gallery. Participating artists range from painters to woodcarvers, and potters to photographers. 

Ridge Runners Delivery and Transportation will be providing a shuttle between locations from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. At each stop, visitors can purchase artwork and signed books while visiting with local creators. They will also have their Art Hop Passports stamped, and those who attend all six locations will receive a free entry into the grand prize raffle: A Fiesta Lights gift basket valued at over $600. Additional tickets may be purchased for a chance to win. At 7 p.m., Cloak and Dagger On the Air will perform “Tales from the Inner Sanctum” at the Summit Art Gallery. Admission to all the day’s events is free, but donations are appreciated.

At 11 a.m. the Sarah Miller House in Wellsburg will offer a lunch for $20 prepared by Chef Darcy Riggs, including a cranberry, turkey, and white cheddar sandwich with onion apple jam and arugula, potato and leek soup, and sugar cream pie. Space is limited, so lunch reservations should be made by emailing Chatman Neeley at by October 25th. In Weirton, Basil’s Sports Bar and Grill will offer 15% off all day for customers that present their Art Hop Passports. Students from the John D. Rockefeller Career Center’s Culinary program will also be serving tailgate appetizers at the Summit Art Gallery from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

“It’s wonderful to have the support of so many partners for this year’s Art Hop,” said Rachel Keeney, Executive Director of the CVB. “The community is coming together to enjoy the visual, written, performing, and culinary arts in one day.”For more information about the Art Hop, and a full list of participants, visit or call 304-797-7001.
