LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - By Arthur Clayborn - email

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - East Texan, Bobby Pinke, has been an aspiring artist since the age of five. Over the years, he has questioned his dedication to his work. But, friends and others have not, constantly complimenting his abilities and encouraging him to stick with it.

Now, East Texans are taking notice of his pieces which consist of African-American pastel, charcoal and chalk work - inspired by his hometown of Kilgore.

October 31st his works will be on exhibit at the Longview Museum of Art for East Texans to enjoy.
