Glenville, WV – The work of mixed media Artist Zachary Orcutt is being featured in the Glenville State College Fine Arts Gallery. His exhibit, ‘Zorcutt’s Flying Machines and Other Devices,’ will be on display through March 2nd.
“Being an artist is a leap of faith – defying expectations, defying convention, pushing boundaries, and expanding the realm of what is possible. The ability to fly, as well as the dream of flight, has proven to be fertile ground for my artistic imagination and a timeless metaphor for growth, transformation, and transcendence,” said Orcutt.
“It is an honor to have Zachary Orcutt’s sculptures here at GSC. He has a vivid imagination and his installations pieces are a tremendous learning experience for our students. The work makes you think that you really could use it to fly,’ said GSC Professor of Art Liza Brenner.
Orcutt’s opening reception will take place in the GSC Art Gallery on February 6th from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. The show will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and one hour before all GSC Fine Arts events.
Orcutt is a Professor of Art at West Virginia University Parkersburg where he teaches ceramics, bronze casting, and art appreciation. He received his Bachelors of Fine Art from Syracuse University and Masters of Fine Art from Bowling Green State University. Orcutt resides in Parkersburg, West Virginia (Wood County).
