Table of Elements 2010 Exhibition at Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild
(on view through April 8, 2010)
Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild is proud to present Table of Elements 2010, which brings together all of the components on which MCG’s model is founded into one commemorative occasion that reflects the contributions of artists in making ordinary experiences extraordinary.

On display will be ceramics by widely collected artists like Ed Eberle, Robert Briscoe, Suze Lindsay and Nick Joerling. The showcase will also include photographs, prints, and paintings—some of which have been provided through collections of Artists Image Resource and painter Glen Brunken.

61 of the contributing artists (~55%) are from the Pittsburgh area, which includes 6 of whom are from the western PA region (e.g. Indiana, West Virginia, Edinboro).

A few specific names: Ed Eberle, Valda Cox, Sue Abramson, Richard Wukich, Laura Jean McLaughlin, Glen Brunken, John Ritter, Mary Tremonte and more!
