(Bluefield)—Local artist H. Scott Pitt is showing a collection of his photography at The Art Gallery at Mish Mish in Blacksburg, VA through September 26. Still Fragile is a continuation of photographs that explore the extreme close-up view of wear, tear, and decay on buildings and man-made structures.

"What I have found in these little worlds of rot and wear are amazing landscapes and seascapes," Pitt explained. "This show is a mix of new and archived works that represent two years of seeking and highlighting the beauty that is often over looked in our daily surroundings. Through the photography, digital enhancement, and mixed media techniques I am attempting to change a viewer's perceptions and the emotional impact of their surroundings." Mish Mish is located at 125 N. Main St., Blacksburg, VA.

Pitt is an Educational Outreach Counselor with Student Support Services at Bluefield State College. He holds a Bachelor's of Arts in Studio Art. He has worked in acrylics, mixed media, photography, and pen and ink for the past 19 years.
