ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Sean Blair, photographer, received a master’s degree in fine arts at West Virginia University, where he also taught from 2007-2008. His latest project, “Bark”, focuses on dog portraits.
Carey Busatto, a local photographer from Greensburg, PA, captures images that create lasting memories. Carey Busatto Photography specializes in family and children’s photography.

Her solo exhibit at Greensburg Garden and Civic Center is scheduled for October 2017.
The Rev. Daisher Rocket is self-described as an “artist, cult leader, self-help author, and a pretty nice guy.” His integration into the community includes his state-of-the-art Center for Daisheretics in Greensburg, PA and his monthly ‘Paint with Me’ nights at WCT’s Incubator for the ARTS (Studio A, 108 N Main St).
Sculptor and installation artist Nick Silvis is a native of Greensburg. He is a member of Greensburg Art Center and a junior at Seton Hill University, studying fine arts.
