stories @ 925 Liberty Ave Downtown Pittsburgh


info from:

December 31, 2009 to February 1, 2010

925 Penn Ave Downtown Pittsburgh

Everyone has a story. It’s how we describe ourselves in our minds and to each
other. An image can evoke thousands of words from one instant. What is it about
a look or gesture that speaks volumes? How do we interpret these fractions of
moments? A space can tell a story, too. By entering a room, you are invited to
know the inhabitants. You are invited to see, hear and feel their story.
stories is an exhibit of art-filled interiors inspired by the narratives of our
lives and the meaning we assign to the places we call home. Whether one is
a thrilling mystery, an epic saga or an esoteric poem, a customized home reflects
the lives unfolding there. What’s your story?

stories is also the grand-opening exhibit of Emphasis Interiors, a
new interior design firm specializing in visual art and the creative process.
Stories are meant to be shared. Join us for the events of our first themed
ARTShow or call for a design appointment. Then stay in touch—our next exhibit
will tell a new tale in a different locale!
