Donn Kinney and Seth Kitmiller, two West Virginia artists, will be displaying and selling their works courtesy of the Rock City Cake Company on June 22nd as part of the local Art Walk scene.
Donn Kinney, from Logan County, is a well known sculptor and doll artist in his own right with pieces in collections around the world. He trained at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in his younger years and worked with Jim Henson's Creature Shop on projects such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3 and Fox Kids Cubhouse. He does sculptural work at his private studio and travels across the country hosting student workshops. Donn is also an avid collector of natural history specimens which he often incorporates literally and figuratively into his art work.
Seth Kitzmiller, from Randolph County, studied painting and drawing at West Virginia Wesleyan College in the early 2000's, and ever since then he's had a passion for birds and their mythologies. He developed his style at the New York School of Visual Arts and the Vermont Studio Center and his work has shown in New York, New Mexico, Vermont, and even Istanbul, Turkey. He continues to sharpen new skills here in Logan such as old fashioned print making with his online, Etsy t-shirt shop Augur & Totem Tees and www.facebook.com/augurtotemtees1.
