Art Exhibit - A Clifton Homecoming
Posted: Thursday, February 02, 2017
The Clifton Arts Center Gallery presents "A Clifton Homecoming: Sculptures & Artwork by Richard Pitts". His two sculptures of Conestoga and Minos have been recently added to the sculpture park. In his current indoor exhibit at the gallery, he will showcase his unique and skilled style of art via sculptures and two dimensional works. Pitts' work is represented in many private and public collections including museums and corporate collections. For the past 20 years, Pitts has explored ways to combine his passion for abstract expressionism, third world art, the shaped canvases of Stella and Murray, Japanese wood cuts, and cartoons. In honor of the special Clifton centennial, Pitts returns to Clifton with a tribute to homecoming that honors art and Clifton.
