Glenville, WV – Joseph Pettit, a 1976 Glenville State College graduate, will be presenting his oil paintings in front of the GSC Robert F. Kidd Library on Friday, October 26th from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. This showcase is one of many planned activities for the 2012 Homecoming Week.
“Homecoming is a great time for our current and past students to learn more about the artistic accomplishments of a GSC alumnus! Be sure to enter your name in the drawing to win one of Joseph’s beautiful paintings,” said GSC Staff Librarian Virginia ‘Ginny’ Yeager.
Pettit began painting fifteen years ago but says he has really been ‘pushing the brush’ pretty hard during the last ten years. Before graduating from GSC, he served two years in the United States Army. Pettit is retired from twenty-five years of service in the saw mill industry after teaching for ten years prior. He resides in Sutton, West Virginia (Braxton County).
You can see examples of his artwork at http://www.alliedartistswv.org/art-gallery.html.
In the case of adverse weather, the show will be moved to the first floor of the GSC RFK Library. For more information, contact Yeager at Virginia.Yeager@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6164.
