Elijah Pruitt

Elijah Pruitt, Durham native, Hillsborough resident and prominent yoga teacher, will present a curated selection of his paintings at Gallery 71 on Friday, February 23rd from 7-10p. Pruitt’s art education began when a group of hippies —who were friends of his parents—taught him the art of tie-dye. He studied fine-art at East Carolina University and Appalachian State. After noxious chemicals forced him to reevaluate his tie-dye work he became a painter.
