The artist will be on display in our lower level gallery throughout the month of January.
From the artist:
W. TURK (William W. DeTurck): Born 1968 in Pittsburgh, PA,
grew up in Oakmont, attended Riverview High School; played football
I have been artistic since a young age; self-taught musician, magician, and artist. I started signing W.Turk as a kid and cannot tell you the reason why?
As a young man, I enjoyed sports and enjoyed a brief career as a center for the Pitt Panthers until a back injury cut those dreams short.
I enjoy all media and work in any scale. I have done many murals including a mural in the Oakmont Fire Hall and can paint or mimic any finish or walls and floors. I have been everything from a handyman to a building inspector and am currently renovating homes for a living.
I paint things that catch my eye, I have to feel some inspiration for it to convey to the canvass. I have displayed here some iconic figures:
* TOM PETTY
* THE MARLBORO MAN
* MOLLY HATCHET ALBUM COVER
Hope you enjoy!
There will be a reception for William on Thursday, January 17th from 6:00-8:00pm. Refreshments will be served and the public is welcome.
