937 Liberty during Gallery Crawl

A stolen overcoat, a murdered thief. The people of 19th-century Pittsburgh made some mistakes. Sometimes those bad decisions are all we know of 'em.

***July 16, 2010 as part of the Gallery Crawl***

Public Record is a multi-media art project using documentary poems, written from 19th-century Pittsburgh crime reports, that you can experience as audio performances via your mobile phone - in the Downtown locations where these events actually occurred.

Public Record debuts with a show at 937 Liberty featuring contributions from a barrage of local artists (see below), and including a version of the piece to be experienced in the gallery, via any mobile phone!

(PS - Besides the obligatory beer and wine, we'll be serving up yummy Pimm's Cups for your summer lovin')

Live like you're at Rice's Castle or Snyder's Saloon with Shattock and Hughey Friel, just one more time.

Brought to you by Justin Hopper as artist-in-residence with Deeplocal and Encyclopedia Destructica, and supported by a generous Seed Award from THE SPROUT FUND.

***

Contributors include:

Sounds & Voices by Herman "Soy Sos" Pearl, Christiane Leach, Alexi Morrissey, David Bernabo, and more.

Visual artwork by Jennifer Howison, Christopher Kardambikis, David Pohl, Jeff Schreckengost, Jonathan Kline, Christine Brill, Erin Brubaker, WAYNO, and more.

Under Deconstruction: Transformazium, Braddock PA Arts Revival


Under Deconstruction: Transformazium



Deconstruction is the selective dismantling of a building for the purpose of reusing the materials to build new structures, and it is this process which Ruthie, along with formerly Brooklyn based artists Leslie Stern, Dana Bishop-Root, and Caledonia Curry (better known as Swoon), are using to turn their building into a community arts center called the Transformazium.

Although a lot of hard work still needs to be done deconstructing and rebuilding the Transformazium, the future seems bright. Swoon lives in Brooklyn, but is currently building an adobe dome in the lot across the street from the Transformazium, which will function as a community greeting space. Leslie, Dana, and Ruthie have completed two large projects that involved the community's participation. It's clear that the Transformazium is becoming more than a community arts center, but just what that will be remains uncertain, even to the Transformazium. "We are going to let it evolve more organically, and with input from our neighbors as well. We are definitely working towards a community garden in the lot, though", says Leslie.

Pittsburgh Society of Artists “Urban Dreams” exhibit at Fein Art Gallery
“Urban Dreams” Exhibit description: Increasing technologies, multicultural diversity and global exchange heighten our subconscious fears and euphoric hopes for the future. This exhibit challenges artists to abandon linear thinking and pursue interpretations of urban dreams. Using media of their choice, artists explore the hopes and/or fears of the global impact upon our urban environments. The show includes 38 Pieces by 31 artists selected by Juror Kathleeen Zimbicki.

Carol Skinger with her fake urban plan for East Liberty which received a Juror’s Award. In her artwork titled “urban renewal nightmare dream for East Liberty” Pittsburgh artist Carol Skinger poses as an urban planner with Robert Moses, R.K. Mellon and Mosites Co.’s names crossed out as players for the role. Skinger attempts to decisively associate East Liberty with the global green movement by imposing 80 green rooftops on the buildings, and in doing so, play catch up with Chicago, US leader in green roofs. Through the writing on the frame it is also a meditation on “green” recalling the green forest East Liberty once was, the green “liberty” it then became as in free cattle grazing area, the green, as in value and money that was made from it and contiguous lands- when it was developed and subdivided by Thomas Mellon. He gained a real-estate toe hold here, which became the basis for his future ventures, through his marriage to Sarah Jane Negley. Other artistic embellishments Skinger proposes: organic gardens, a lazy river moat ride around East Liberty Presbyterian Church, outdoor pools and a summer stage (orange) for a “Chris Ivey Film Festival” (who she assigns the role of Jane Jacobs) in the middle of it all. East Liberty becomes Liberty Green, a fantasy worth exploring.

Pittsburgh Artist Kathryn Carr at WildCard Lawrenceville Pittsburgh PA




WildCard presents Pittsburgh Artist Kathryn Carr’s Root,

A Scherenschnitte Show, from June 11 to July 15, 2010

Pittsburgh, PA

With the success of Chicago Artist Laura Berger’s “Water Test” show, as well as the wildly popular Vintage Weekend, WildCard in Lawrenceville continues its run of summer events with the Friday, June 11 opening of artist Kathryn Carr’s “Root.” The show revolves around images featuring roots and tying into the fairy tale idea of a “root of all evil.” In addition, new art cards and posters will be created specifically for this show.

Carr’s art was recently presented at Gallery Sim’s “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” where it garnered accolades for her exacting work. But unlike “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” where Carr’s work was presented alongside one other artist, “Root” is a solo show of her paper cuts. Rooted in the traditional German style of Scherenschnitte, Carr is working towards creating a contemporary style that combines the delicate paper cuts with the shadows they create.

WildCard owner Rebecca Morris was pleased to discover a world-class paper-cut artist living right in Pittsburgh and was eager to sell Carr’s work, as well as featuring her as an artist in the store’s back gallery.

“Root” has its opening night on Friday, June 11 with a free reception from 6 to 9pm. No RSVP is required. Samples of Kathryn Carr’s work can be seen on her website at gocarrgo.com

WildCard is located at 4209 Butler St, Pittsburgh, PA 15201.
412.224.2651.

Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 11-7, Sunday 12-6, late hours Thursday until 9pm

With members in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly-minded printmakers and as a loose collection of individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods. We believe in the transformative power of personal expression in concert with collective action.

Founded in 1998, and originally the graphics distribution project of Josh MacPhee, Justseeds made the transformation into a worker-owned cooperative in 2007 – the original network being largely in place through past collaborations. Having outgrown our space in a residential basement in Portland, Oregon, in May of 2010 we transported our distribution center to our new and larger home in Pittsburgh, PA. We operate an online store and wholesale distro, an active, multi-voice blog detailing current art and resistance projects around the world, and a small gallery space in our Pittsburgh office which highlights member work.

3 Rivers Arts Festival: The Art of Technology



Looks like a good start to shedding the 3 Rivers Food Festival hangover this festival has had for quite some time (that and the focus on many out of state market artists which still continues). You be the judge and check it aht for yourselves!


June 4-13 2010

The exhibits and performances may change the way we view art and technology, and help us to better realize the unlimited potential of each. Plus, they offer us some downright good times that are sure to benefit everyone’s Festival experience. Ranging from digital puppetry to interactive sculptures and robots, video installations, and an interactive exhibit requiring text messages from viewers. Following are a few glimpses into what you will see on the visual arts side; we’ll cover performances in another post.

David Edwards’ 14′ tall sculpture made from 80% recycled aluminum takes the shape of a potted sunflower. Its wind-powered spinning petals transform wind into energy using a micro wind turbine. In addition, there are flexible solar panels that collect energy for programmable LED lighting. This exhibit and others can be seen at Point State Park.

Pittsburgh Artist Ben Hernstrom, Ambulantic Videoworks Residency in Iceland

Be a part of supporting Pittsburgh artist Ben Hernstrom (Ambulantic Videoworks) and his artist residency in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Direct link to donate here.

Video here.


from Ambulantic Videoworks

This July I am heading to Reykjavik to the SIMRES artist residency, then spending August at the Nes Artist Residency in Skagaströnd, where I will make videos and take photos.

The SIMRES (Icelandic Association of Artists residency) in Reykjavik only accepts 10 foreigners at a time, so I am flattered and excited about being accepted into the program.

Skagaströnd is an amazing seaside fishing village with a population of only 520 people. I am incredibly excited about the opportunity to spend a month there creating new work.

Having 60 days to work on new creative projects, without the constant distractions of running my small video production company (reading/sending a bazillion emails a day, researching jobs, begging people to hire me to make a video for them for like half of what everyone else charges, recutting the same *$^%&$ video for the 10th time because the client has no idea what they want, et cetera et cetera et cetera) would be unfathomably wondrous. (Well, OK, I actually really like my job mostly, but I still really want to go to Iceland to make new work and take 2 months away from the normal jobs.

While there, I'm hoping to shoot a short documentary on the Country Days festival. Skagaströnd is a very small fishing village, north of the Arctic Circle. It is famous throughout Iceland for being the home of Hallbjörn Helgason, “The Icelandic Cowboy” and “Country King", who pretty much single-handedly introduced American country music to Iceland. Every August they have a huge festival, with live music and other festivities.
You can see a good example of the kind of film I'm looking to produce here:
http://www.youtube.com/user/ambulantic...

I am also planning on making a short experimental narrative. For reference please see my 2006 short:
I am like cities
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1587167/

And I'm going to take some photos. W.H. Auden described the light in Iceland by saying it was "the most magical light of anywhere on earth." The summer days have as many as 18 hours of sunlight, resulting in spectacular opportunities for creating images.

Project location: Reykjavík

Artists Eric Luden and Kris Boban at Zombo Gallery Lawrenceville


The ZOMBO Gallery presents "in stereo", the art of Eric Luden and Kris Boban. The show opens June 4th from 6-9pm.
Eric Luden
An art director friend once asked me why I rarely draw thin women in my designs. My response was that I find it more enjoyable to draw a curve than a straight line. My art education involved studying the work of cartoonist Don Martin in the pages of MAD Magazine as a child. Most of my previous work was done digitally, but now I discovered the fun of working with a brush and One Shot paint.
Kris Boban
My art is a blend of influences from traditional animation, graphic design, and world cultures. I often combines cute and/or direful creatures in melancholy or joyful humanistic situations.
Born in 1983 in New Jersey and a BFA graduate from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in animation. I quickly took notice of the beauty of LA and the evolving underground art scene. Deeply inspired by artists like Tim Biskup, Joe Ledbetter, Amanda Vissell, and Greg Simkins, I would paint and draw after-hours from my full-time job on Nickelodeon's "Yo Gabba Gabba!". My animation work grabbed the attention of JJ Abrams, Warner Bros, MTV and Paramount Pictures, and my work has been used for various popular brands seen around the world.
The ZOMBO Gallery is located at 4900 Hatfield St. in Lawrenceville.

Charles and Beth Steidle Art Exhibit At ModernFormations Gallery


Opening June 4th 7-10 pm

“Quel Dommage! The Artwork of Siblings Beth and Charles Steidle”


Quel dommage! What a shame! What a pity! This exhibit is inspired by all the little sadnesses and minor disasters accumulated over time: a malfunctioning anatomy, a rabid raccoon, a falling horse, a missing arm, animals eating other animals. As children, Charles rubbed red yarn in Beth’s eye. Beth repeatedly told Charles he was adopted and unwanted. Now, as responsible adults, they have teamed up to present new works, in a variety of media, created throughout the past year.
