TAYLOR COUNTY—The Taylor County Arts Council (TCAC) is excited to showcase the beautifully captured scenes of Chrissy Zeltner.

“After a busy January filled with cleaning and carrying out our yearly ‘facelift,’ Gallery 62 West will be reopening to the public in February,” said a TCAC representative. “To kick off our first show of the 2022 season, we will be showing an amazing group of photographs from this talented artist.”

Zeltner hails from neighboring Bruceton Mills, where she residents with her partner, Patrick, and a plethora of animals including their dog, two cats and 18 chickens.

When not capturing the beauty that surrounds her through photography, Zeltner provides a healing touch through her business Haven of Healing Arts Massage Therapy in Morgantown.

She is a Licensed Massage Therapist and has been practicing since 1999, working to help individuals relax, unwind and heal with a soothing massage.

In her spare time, she can be found tending to one of her five gardens.

And it is no surprise that this West Virginia native enjoys time outdoors, whether it be whitewater kayaking, mountain biking or hiking in the scenic beauty of the Mountain State.

“My motto in life is that you’re not having fun unless you’re covered in dirt or river water at least a few times a week,” expressed Zeltner.
Her love of water, plants and animals serves as the focal point of her photography.

“Between living in West Virginia and having been lucky enough to have traveled to some amazing places, choosing pictures for this show was difficult to narrow down,” Zeltner disclosed.

However, she has done so and picked some of her favorite shots to share with residents and guests of Taylor County.

Join the TCAC as they welcome Zeltner to Gallery 62 West in downtown Grafton, during their February exhibition. The official opening date is slated for Friday, February 4, beginning at 6:00 p.m., as part of Grafton’s First Friday celebration.

“However, those who are too excited to wait and would like a sneak peak at the amazing photos in Zeltner’s showing can stop by the gallery on Thursday, February 3 or Friday morning from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.,” the TCAC representative shared. “We are so excited for this showcase and are counting down the days in anticipation!”

For those unable to attend opening night, have no fear, Gallery 62 West will be open throughout the month to offer residents and guests more chances to take in Zeltner’s stunning pictures.

Guests may stop by the gallery on Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. to check out her work.

“Because it’s winter in West Virginia and we never know what Mother Nature might throw at us, there is always a possibility for closures due to inclement weather,” the TCAC representative reminded.
