Holiday Tree To Don Ornaments From W.V. Artists

CHARLESTON, W.V. (AP) - West Virginia artists are being invited to create ornaments for the holiday tree at the governor's mansion.

The state Division of Culture and History says Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin and first lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin plan to showcase the artwork to everyone who will visit the mansion during the holidays.

Artists throughout the state are encouraged to hand craft ornaments suitable for hanging on a 14-foot tree. The ornaments also will be kept for future use.

Participating artists also will be featured in a commemorative catalog and invited to an opening celebration at the mansion.

Submissions are due by Nov. 23. They must include a short biography and a description of the ornament.

More information can be found on the division's website,
