NTS Spotlight: Wayne King
A man worth talking to:
Wayne King in a Non-Traditional student who currently
lives in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. He originally hails from Brooklyn, New York
and has lived in several cities throughout the United States. He moved to
Waynesboro, when he decided to study Art at Ship.
Prior to his relocation
Waynesboro, Wayne owned and operated his own business.
In addition to art (painting and sculpture), Wayne’s
interest and hobbies include history, writing, and music and stimulating
conversations. He enjoys the tenor saxophone, alto saxophone and the flute. He
was classically trained on the flute at the Lincoln Center for the Performing
Arts in New York, and has also studied with Maestro Socaras, conductor of the
Cleveland Symphonic Orchestra.
Wayne enjoys recalling the turbulent two years that he
spent at Kent State University as a Political Science major, when students were
active and engaged in changing the course of the nation.
Upon graduation, Wayne looks forward to opening an art
center selling fine arts and crafts, either in Barbados (father’s ancestry) or
in Grenada (wife’s ancestry). Wayne’s exhibit, "The Other Side", just closed
after a two week showing in the Brindle Gallery at the Huber Arts
Wayne has been married for thirty years and is the
father of three children.
