From a very early age, local artist Kevin Kutz showed those around him his future. Kutz said, as his elementary schoolteachers in essence told his adoptive parents, “That’s what this kid is going to do,” when his artistic endeavors were first apparent.

“I credit Jean Slenker with saying I wasn’t going to learn anything from out of the books — I was going to learn it on my own.”

Visitors can view the exhibit at 137 E. Pitt St. through Sunday from noon-4:30. For more information, contact SAMA Bedford at 814-589-3020. For more information on this story, contact Tyna Walker-Lay at
