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.

At a time when the American people are being inundated by a sense of uncertainty, artists may be uniquely skilled in demonstrating the profound outcomes that are possible when one willingly steps into the unknown. Breaking from past techniques, materials, and comfort zones, six artists rise to the challenge of creating artworks that reveal societal blind spots and shed light on shared human experiences in an ever-shifting landscape. Whether confronting the role of technology in our lives, exploring personal histories, or embracing remaining cultural comforts, artists featured in Seeking Truth look to interrupt our current understanding of what is real and what is true.

Seeking Truth is the capstone exhibition of Brew House Association’s tenth cohort in its’ Distillery Artist Residency. Established in 2006, Distillery is a yearlong studio residency designed to help emerging artists transition into a professional artistic career by supporting a rigorous studio practice and providing professional development and mentorship opportunities. The program focuses on inspiring participants to embrace new challenges in their work and builds a supportive community in which to create.

Exhibiting artists include Jamie Earnest, Brendon J Hawkins, Adam Linn, Njaimeh Njie, Centa Schumacher, & Kamara T. (Wavy Wednesday).

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

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.

At a time when the American people are being inundated by a sense of uncertainty, artists may be uniquely skilled in demonstrating the profound outcomes that are possible when one willingly steps into the unknown. Breaking from past techniques, materials, and comfort zones, six artists rise to the challenge of creating artworks that reveal societal blind spots and shed light on shared human experiences in an ever-shifting landscape. Whether confronting the role of technology in our lives, exploring personal histories, or embracing remaining cultural comforts, artists featured in Seeking Truth look to interrupt our current understanding of what is real and what is true.

Seeking Truth is the capstone exhibition of Brew House Association’s tenth cohort in its’ Distillery Artist Residency. Established in 2006, Distillery is a yearlong studio residency designed to help emerging artists transition into a professional artistic career by supporting a rigorous studio practice and providing professional development and mentorship opportunities. The program focuses on inspiring participants to embrace new challenges in their work and builds a supportive community in which to create.

Exhibiting artists include Jamie Earnest, Brendon J Hawkins, Adam Linn, Njaimeh Njie, Centa Schumacher, & Kamara T. (Wavy Wednesday).

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

More than 4 million Africans were brought to Brazil during the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
Grounded in a strong community and Earth-based wisdom, the Candomblé culture has become a parallel for the social challenges, resiliency, and triumphs of its devotees. 
Streamed on The Show Must Go On(line) Pittsburgh channel. (run-time 90 min, including post-screening discussion)

The award-winning documentary film made its Pittsburgh premiere in 2016, including a panel discussion with Alice Walker, who participated in several workshops during her visit, and enjoyed a tour at City of Asylum before Alphabet City was open. These Pittsburgh connections were made possible by Sabira Bushra (Cole) and the Sembene Film Festival.

Filmmakers Donna Roberts and Gerald (Chip) Hoffman will participate in a post-screening discussion and audience Q+A.
