About Gregory Vita:
Gregory Vita (1990–2017) was a dedicated, perseverant, and talented papermaker, bookmaker and printmaker. Born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA, he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from the Corcoran School of Art & Design in Washington D.C. in 2015. Athletic and multi-talented, he enjoyed surfing, skateboarding, and music, which inspired his true passion—art. During his time with Pyramid, he wore many hats: a resident artist, a teacher, our resident skateboarder, and a friend you could share your wildest art ideas with. Thanks to the generosity of Greg’s family and friends, we are proud to offer this artist residency opportunity in his honor.
