On Monday, August 8, Fairmont State University’s J.D. Brooks Gallery premiered an art exhibit by West Virginia printmakers, Base Camp Printing.
Base Camp Printing is comprised of two co-owners, sisters Emily and Betsy Sokolosky. The Sokoloskys are Charleston natives who run their printing business on the city’s east side. Emily initially established Base Camp Printing in May of 2016 and was joined by her older sister Betsy later that fall.
Over the weekend, Fairmont State University hosted its Welcome Week festivities taking place Thursday, August 4 – Sunday, August 7, allowing new students to become acclimated on campus prior to the first week of classes.
Two Fairmont State University faculty members were recognized at the annual Faculty Award Ceremony earlier this year as sabbatical award recipients, which provides the opportunity to engage in research, writing, study or any other activity to improve instruction.
Fairmont State University will host a series of events as part of the University’s Welcome Weekend, taking place Thursday, August 4 – Sunday, August 7. The aim of Welcome Weekend programming is to allow new students to become acclimated on campus prior to the first week of classes, beginning Monday, August 8.
