ST. CLAIRSVILLE -- The Belmont College Building Preservation/Restoration (BPR) Student Association will be hosting their third "Traditional Building Arts Expo" on Friday, April 28, 2017 in the Atrium at the Wheeling Artisan Center located in Downtown Wheeling from 5-8 p.m. There is no cost to attend the Expo.

The community is invited to view student projects and demonstrations by talented BPR students who are learning the skills of the traditional building trades to preserve, maintain, and restore historic buildings. Examples of ornamental plaster, wood parquetry, stained glass, blacksmithing, hand-made ceramic tile and scagliola all made by students in the program will be displayed.

Additionally, the students will also be offering some of their hand-made wares via a silent auction during the event. All of the proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the BPR Student Association for conferences and field trips.
