The Parkersburg Art Center is hosting the exhibition. Weaver’s raku teapot titled “Gold Cloud” was selected as one of the entries by art juror Walter Hyleck, a professor atBerea College.

“It’s such an honor to be invited to exhibit with these outstanding ceramic artists,” said Weaver, who mentioned that one of the other artists is his former teacher and mentor, Masako Miyata, a renowned ceramist originally from Japan.

In another exhibition held at the Staunton Augusta Art Center in Staunton, Virginia, Weaver was invited to exhibit among twenty-seven leading ceramic artists in the United States in an art show titled “Amazing Clay.” The all-ceramic exhibition runs from October 6 through November 10, 2006.

Weaver, in his thirteenth year of teaching at the college said, “Most of the ceramic pieces I create are developed and constructed among the students. Hopefully we provide a great deal of inspiration for each other.”
