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.

Kenny Glenn

I was fortunate to have been raised in a very diverse region in central North Carolina: a region rich in rural culture, athletics and outdoor life; a region known for its educational institutions, manufacturing facilities and art centers.  My paintings reflect this diversity from rural life scenes to sport fishing, from mountain wildlife to college montages. I believe art should be a reflection of an artist's life.

 My art is an extension of me, my interests, my life, and my core values.  I love nature, the outdoors, the smell of early morning dew, the feel of mist coming off a lake, the sound of pounding surf and the silence of a slight breeze moving through the leaves.  My wife, Ann, and I love to travel to see new sights, to taste new food delights, and to absorb different cultures.  I feel fortunate for my life and for this earth -- what a great gift God has given us.  I hope you can see in my paintings what I have seen and felt.
