Soul of Miami and Life is Art presented Art and Soul featuring music by Cat Shell and art by Greg Pitts at Van Dyke Cafe Upstair on Wednesday, November 23, 2010. We had a great crowd, Cat was amazing (as usually) and some wonderful art from Greg.  Thanks everyone who came out the night before Thanksgiving and sharing the evening with us.

Cat Shell is a singer/songwriter residing in Miami Beach. Since 2007, Cat has been playing throughout South Florida and performs regularly at the area’s top venues, including The Van Dyke Cafe, B Bar at The Betsy, The Florida Room in Miami Beach and many more. Growing up with a family in radio and musical theater, Cat was introduced to a wide variety of music at a very young age.

Gregg Pitts born to a single parent family, Greg Pitt started out life at a disadvantage. Growing up without a father figure made life less than ideal. He did not meet his father until the age of 12. As a young teen, he exhibited artistic capabilities, however the lack of understanding and from his family lead to discouragement. He continued to strive to express himself artistically.  Despite a difficult start in life, he continued to express his artistic side.  Greg Pitts abstract artwork has been compared to that of abstract impressionist artist Jackson Pollock. He was the featured artist of the month for February 2009 with Elements of Art and has been exhibited at Etra Fine Art Gallery and Ornare both in Miami, FL.
