Seth Pitt artist reception will be July 11 from 5pm to 7pm in the Art Gallery at Tibbits Opera House.
Originally from Union City Michigan, Seth currently lives and works out of Thomas, West Virginia. There, he keeps a studio and gallery named “Creature” where spends a lot of his time creating things to overflow it.
He is self taught, didn’t go to art school, and couldn’t draw a shoe very well when he was young. In fact, he spent the majority of his youth believing that he was not an artist at all. While he still cannot draw a show very well, he is happy to eventually hold the conclusion that the ability to do so has no consequence on whether or not one should be making art. The majority of Seth’s work tends to huddle around small magic and the things humanity finds camaraderie in.
Aside from making art, he deeply enjoy writings, looking at clouds, walking in the woods, marveling at the innate brilliance of common things and having small parades with the fine people he’s been lucky enough to come to know and love.
He considers daydreaming essential, wonder imperative and an unyielding reverence for life boundlessly imperative.
