West Virginia artist is teaching and learning


Chase Bowman found a love for art at the young age of just five years old when he entered a coloring contest and won it.

Bowman is a Mercer County native who is originally from Matoaka and a graduate from the 1998 class at Princeton Senior High School.

He is now an Associate Professor at Concord University (CU) for art, and he is going into his eighth year teaching there for this academic year.
