The Murray State University Galleries and the department of art & design are pleased to present the art of Wyatt Daglã Severs, an artist who works in wood.
Wyatt Daglã Severs grew up playing in the forests and creek beds of southern Illinois before moving to Murray, Kentucky, at the age of 8. He studied art at Murray State University while working as a teacher’s assistant and shop technician in wood. Severs has also studied and worked at Peters Valley Craft Center in Layton, New Jersey; Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, Colorado; Penland School of Crafts in Penland, North Carolina; Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee; Appalachian Center for Crafts in Smithville, Tennessee; and John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina. Severs has also participated in residencies at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and Penland School of Crafts. Severs has taught woodworking at Arrowmont, Penland and the Appalachian Center for Crafts as well as at his local art guild and through the VSA Side-By-Side program. He is a member of the Furniture Society, the American Association of Woodturners, the Kentucky Arts Council’s Teaching Artist Directory and "Showcasing the Arts," the arts council’s new program.
Severs has had his work published in "500 Cabinets" by Larks Books and "Woodworking" magazine. He was also the sole recipient of the Kentucky Arts Council Emerging Artist Award in 2016. Severs continues his woodworking at his studio in Murray, where he also teaches. This fall he will be assisting Dan Essig at Penland School of Crafts with the Fall Concentration wood workshop. He is also currently renovating an industrial building in western Kentucky to house an educational center focusing on the arts, history and science. When completed, this center will provide educational programs to children and adults.
