Sep 12 – Artist of the Year Opening, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts

Opening reception for Susanne Slavick, 2008 Artist of the Year and Adam Welch, 2008 Emerging Artist

• 5:30 – 6:30pm ... PF/PCA Members Preview (free for members, $10 non-members)• 6:30 – 8:30pm ... Reception open to the public, $5• 7:00pm ... Awards Ceremony

Slavick will present paintings and works on paper from her ongoing "R&R&R," a series that converts our military expression for "rest and recuperation" to words like "reveal, regret, restore." By digitally and manually transforming photographic images of wreckage, she "recognizes, rues or reconstitutes" what has been decimated.

Welch works in a variety of media, including sculpture, drawing, painting, performance and installations as a means to make play of the relationships between our psychology and our created environment, be it physical, perceived or symbolic.

Fri Sep 12, 5:30 – 8:00 Pittsburgh Center for the Arts 6300 Fifth Ave, at Shady Ave, Pittsburgh 15232 (412) 361-0873
