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.
