Contemporary Craft’s Grand Opening exhibition – The Heart Lives through The Hands – in its new, permanent facility in Upper Lawrenceville will feature internationally acclaimed artist Caledonia Curry’s (a.k.a. Swoon) large-scale paper and mixed media artworks. Swoon is the first woman to gain large-scale recognition in the male-dominated world of street art. Her cut paper and hand printed works marry the whimsical to the grounded, weaving in fairy tales, myth, and a recurring motif of the sacred feminine. Tendrils of her own family history—and a legacy of her parents’ struggles with addiction and substance abuse—recur throughout her work. Her exhibiting artwork addresses relationships between people and their built environment and explores how creativity can positively impact communities in times of crisis and change.

Join us to experience the immersive installation and tour Contemporary Craft’s fabulous new home on a new to-be-determined date in 2020. This exhibition and its reception is free and welcomes all.

Streamed on The Show Must Go On(line) Pittsburgh channel(run-time 60 minutes) 

Clown can balance things on his nose, he can juggle, he can tie himself in knots, he has long skinny legs, and funny socks. He doesn’t know where a lot of things are or how to do important stuff! He wants to be president because he thinks he’ll get to wear a big fancy hat!

On the other side his opponent Puppet! Puppet is a pig! He can pop out his eyeballs, make up stories, songs, and terrible lies, he can talk in funny voices, dance on thin air, and then disappear into a suitcase. He wants to be president so he can be the one pulling the strings!

O’Ryan The O’Mazing (Clown) and Dave English (Puppet) reprise their roles in an ongoing absurdist political campaign between two hapless and at times malevolent politicians campaigning to win the presidency of the United States. Launched in the fall of 2019 “Clown Vs Puppet 2020” toured small theaters drumming up rust belt votes from people who suddenly matter- and making them laugh! Audiences roll with laughter at each performance as Clown and Puppet tackle the issues debate style with moderators and rowdy participants from the crowd! The content is ever changing as Clown and Puppet both do their level best to compete with the real-life buffoonery of the current events they satirize.

Featured Performers:

Dave English received a BFA in Theater and Puppetry from West Virginia University’s College of Creative Arts. He is a Flight School Fellow, National Puppetry Conference Alum, A Brew House Association Distillery Artist, A FINE Resident Artist at Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, a Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Friend’s of Music Fellow, and a 2019 New Hazlett CSA Artist producing this full length puppet play, “The Dragon of Polish Hill” with added support from a Heinz Endowments Small Arts Initiative grant. Dave lives in Polish Hill making puppets and writing shows.

O’ryan ‘the O’Mazing Arrowroot is a career clown. He specializes in juggling, object manipulation, stilt walking, unicycling, magic tricks, improvisation, and physical comedy. At 17 he left the farm in West Virginia where he was born and raised and began to travel wherever the whim would take him. Joining up with musicians and small circus troupes, he has found himself everywhere from orphanages and refugee camps to auditoriums and banquet halls. O’Ryan now mostly performs and teaches for an amazing spectrum of children and adults alike here in Pittsburgh and enjoys every minute of it. “I became an artist because it was the only thing that made sense. I became a clown because nothing makes sense.”

His talents have lead to one of the greatest accomplishments of his life, designing a community park in Wilkinsburg. Overall the arts have always been in his life in one way or another Ray has spent most of his life dealing with both physical and mental health issues, in addition to bullying. Even though he has been painting and drawing from a young age, it wasn’t until 10 did he truly use art-making as expression and an escape. Ray is a Creative consultant/ artivist for 1hood Media.

JM the Poet is a 25 year old artist from Columbia, SC. Now based out of Pittsburgh, PA, he is making a name for himself as a rapper, poet and songwriter.

Shannon Reed did not want to be a teacher, but now, after twenty years of working with children from preschool to college, there’s nothing she’d rather be. In Why Did I Get a B? And Other Mysteries We’re Discussing in the Faculty Lounge readers will find essays full of humor, heart, and wit. Reed illuminates the highs and lows of a job located at the intersection of youth and wisdom. Bringing you into the trenches of this most important and stressful career, she rolls her eyes at ineffectual administrators, weeps with her students when they experience personal tragedies, complains with her colleagues about their ridiculously short lunchbreaks, and presents the parent-teacher conference from the other side of the tiny table.Shannon Reed has been a teacher and professor in Western Pennsylvania and New York City for the last twenty years. She’s taught preschool, middle, and high school, and now teaches Creative Writing at the University of Pittsburgh. Her writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, The Washington Post, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, and more.

Looking for a show a little outside of the box? Zabrecky is a two time Stage Magician of The Year award winner who has also been voted Parlor Magician of the Year twice by the Academy of Magical Arts. Zabrecky combines irreverent dark humor, mentalism, wizardry, and amazing feats of magical storytelling. On the strength of his fresh approach, Zabrecky has made a name for himself with television appearances including Criminal Minds, CSI NY, Comedy Bang Bang, Glow, Strange Angel, and The Next Great Magician. On Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Penn Jillette awarded Zabrecky an incredible compliment, "Sincerely funny and sincerely good!"

Like film director David Lynch, Zabrecky sets the stage for everyday life in his newest show A LITTLE SOMETHING DIFFERENT, then sets it on fire. Mysterious, hilarious, and always unexpected, there’s probably more “theatre” in Zabrecky's wonderfully strange magic than in most Broadway shows. His unique performance character combined with jaw dropping magic and laugh out loud comedy makes his show one you will never forget!

“Highly entertaining and distinctly unique!" - LA TIMES

Talking Heads drummer and Pittsburgh native Chris Frantz in conversation with WESA’s Bill O’Driscoll

One of the most dynamic groups of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Talking Heads, founded by drummer Chris Frantz, his girlfriend Tina Weymouth, and lead singer David Byrne, burst onto the music scene, playing at CBGBs, touring Europe with the Ramones, and creating hits like “Psycho Killer” and “Burning Down the House” that captured the post-baby boom generation’s intense, affectless style.

In Remain in Love, Frantz writes about the beginnings of Talking Heads—their days as art students in Providence, moving to the sparse Chrystie Street loft Frantz, Weymouth, and Byrne shared where the music that defined an era was written. With never-before-seen photos and immersive vivid detail, Frantz describes life on tour, down to the meals eaten and the clothes worn—and reveals the mechanics of a long and complicated working relationship with a mercurial frontman.

Contemporary Craft’s Grand Opening exhibition – The Heart Lives through The Hands – in its new, permanent facility in Upper Lawrenceville will feature internationally acclaimed artist Caledonia Curry’s (a.k.a. Swoon) large-scale paper and mixed media artworks. Swoon is the first woman to gain large-scale recognition in the male-dominated world of street art. Her cut paper and hand printed works marry the whimsical to the grounded, weaving in fairy tales, myth, and a recurring motif of the sacred feminine. Tendrils of her own family history—and a legacy of her parents’ struggles with addiction and substance abuse—recur throughout her work. Her exhibiting artwork addresses relationships between people and their built environment and explores how creativity can positively impact communities in times of crisis and change.

Join us to experience the immersive installation and tour Contemporary Craft’s fabulous new home on a new to-be-determined date in 2020. This exhibition and its reception is free and welcomes all.

Streamed on The Show Must Go On(line) Pittsburgh channel(run-time 60 minutes) 

Clown can balance things on his nose, he can juggle, he can tie himself in knots, he has long skinny legs, and funny socks. He doesn’t know where a lot of things are or how to do important stuff! He wants to be president because he thinks he’ll get to wear a big fancy hat!

On the other side his opponent Puppet! Puppet is a pig! He can pop out his eyeballs, make up stories, songs, and terrible lies, he can talk in funny voices, dance on thin air, and then disappear into a suitcase. He wants to be president so he can be the one pulling the strings!

O’Ryan The O’Mazing (Clown) and Dave English (Puppet) reprise their roles in an ongoing absurdist political campaign between two hapless and at times malevolent politicians campaigning to win the presidency of the United States. Launched in the fall of 2019 “Clown Vs Puppet 2020” toured small theaters drumming up rust belt votes from people who suddenly matter- and making them laugh! Audiences roll with laughter at each performance as Clown and Puppet tackle the issues debate style with moderators and rowdy participants from the crowd! The content is ever changing as Clown and Puppet both do their level best to compete with the real-life buffoonery of the current events they satirize.

Featured Performers:

Dave English received a BFA in Theater and Puppetry from West Virginia University’s College of Creative Arts. He is a Flight School Fellow, National Puppetry Conference Alum, A Brew House Association Distillery Artist, A FINE Resident Artist at Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, a Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Friend’s of Music Fellow, and a 2019 New Hazlett CSA Artist producing this full length puppet play, “The Dragon of Polish Hill” with added support from a Heinz Endowments Small Arts Initiative grant. Dave lives in Polish Hill making puppets and writing shows.

O’ryan ‘the O’Mazing Arrowroot is a career clown. He specializes in juggling, object manipulation, stilt walking, unicycling, magic tricks, improvisation, and physical comedy. At 17 he left the farm in West Virginia where he was born and raised and began to travel wherever the whim would take him. Joining up with musicians and small circus troupes, he has found himself everywhere from orphanages and refugee camps to auditoriums and banquet halls. O’Ryan now mostly performs and teaches for an amazing spectrum of children and adults alike here in Pittsburgh and enjoys every minute of it. “I became an artist because it was the only thing that made sense. I became a clown because nothing makes sense.”

Amun Ray is a young black multi-platform artist with a stronger focus on visual arts. He was raised within the arts and from a young age he was either painting a picture, writing a story or poem, or on stage performing. For Amun Ray, the arts have always been therapeutic, helping him make sense of the surrounding world. His talents have lead to one of the greatest accomplishments of his life, designing a community park in Wilkinsburg. Overall the arts have always been in his life in one way or another Ray has spent most of his life dealing with both physical and mental health issues, in addition to bullying. Even though he has been painting and drawing from a young age, it wasn’t until 10 did he truly use art-making as expression and an escape. Ray is a Creative consultant/ artivist for 1hood Media.

JM the Poet is a 25 year old artist from Columbia, SC. Now based out of Pittsburgh, PA, he is making a name for himself as a rapper, poet and songwriter. Jay has always been known around his peers as a talented artistic soul, and is dedicated to telling his story using his god given gifts. His lyrical approach to music shows the effort and thought that he puts into work while still being able to catch the listeners’ attention. He is a performing and teaching artist with 1Hood Media and now a label mate on the Driving While Black collective with artists such as Livefromthecity and Jordan Montgomery. Check out his music on all streaming platforms

Shannon Reed did not want to be a teacher, but now, after twenty years of working with children from preschool to college, there’s nothing she’d rather be. In Why Did I Get a B? And Other Mysteries We’re Discussing in the Faculty Lounge readers will find essays full of humor, heart, and wit. Reed illuminates the highs and lows of a job located at the intersection of youth and wisdom. Bringing you into the trenches of this most important and stressful career, she rolls her eyes at ineffectual administrators, weeps with her students when they experience personal tragedies, complains with her colleagues about their ridiculously short lunchbreaks, and presents the parent-teacher conference from the other side of the tiny table.Shannon Reed has been a teacher and professor in Western Pennsylvania and New York City for the last twenty years. She’s taught preschool, middle, and high school, and now teaches Creative Writing at the University of Pittsburgh. Her writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, The Washington Post, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, and more.

Looking for a show a little outside of the box? Zabrecky is a two time Stage Magician of The Year award winner who has also been voted Parlor Magician of the Year twice by the Academy of Magical Arts. Zabrecky combines irreverent dark humor, mentalism, wizardry, and amazing feats of magical storytelling. On the strength of his fresh approach, Zabrecky has made a name for himself with television appearances including Criminal Minds, CSI NY, Comedy Bang Bang, Glow, Strange Angel, and The Next Great Magician. On Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Penn Jillette awarded Zabrecky an incredible compliment, "Sincerely funny and sincerely good!"

Like film director David Lynch, Zabrecky sets the stage for everyday life in his newest show A LITTLE SOMETHING DIFFERENT, then sets it on fire. Mysterious, hilarious, and always unexpected, there’s probably more “theatre” in Zabrecky's wonderfully strange magic than in most Broadway shows. His unique performance character combined with jaw dropping magic and laugh out loud comedy makes his show one you will never forget!

“Highly entertaining and distinctly unique!" - LA TIMES

Talking Heads drummer and Pittsburgh native Chris Frantz in conversation with WESA’s Bill O’Driscoll

One of the most dynamic groups of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Talking Heads, founded by drummer Chris Frantz, his girlfriend Tina Weymouth, and lead singer David Byrne, burst onto the music scene, playing at CBGBs, touring Europe with the Ramones, and creating hits like “Psycho Killer” and “Burning Down the House” that captured the post-baby boom generation’s intense, affectless style.

In Remain in Love, Frantz writes about the beginnings of Talking Heads—their days as art students in Providence, moving to the sparse Chrystie Street loft Frantz, Weymouth, and Byrne shared where the music that defined an era was written. With never-before-seen photos and immersive vivid detail, Frantz describes life on tour, down to the meals eaten and the clothes worn—and reveals the mechanics of a long and complicated working relationship with a mercurial frontman.
