Virtual Glassblowing Demonstration + Gallery Tour: Friday, October 2 from 6-8pm

“The United” examines the incredibly complicated topic of immigration in a time when immigration systems are in crisis — affecting many of us closely, as members of diverse communities, as descendants of immigrants, or as immigrants ourselves. The exhibition with artwork from 12 artists from Belgium, Northern Ireland, Russia and the US explores the possibilities for proactive engagement with immigration issues, reconfiguring the status and function of art from passivity to active agency.
Artists include:
Najah Alboushi (Oakland, CA)
Sandra Bacchi (Pittsburgh, PA)
Ibraheem Basree (Columbus, OH)
May Cat (Portland, OR)
Tali Grinshpan (Walnut Creek, CA)
Alan Iwamura (Toledo, OH)
Priscilla Kar Yee Lo (Bloomington, IL)
Alexander Lozano (Dallas, TX)
Alison Lowry (Northern Ireland)
John Moran (US living in Temse, Belgium)
Kristine Rumman (Philadelphia, PA)
Vera Sadakova (St.Petersburg, Russia)

Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the founding of The Frick Art Museum and 30th anniversary of Clayton’s restoration and public opening, we are turning a critical eye toward our permanent collection this fall. The Frick Reflects will examine the social context in which the Frick family lived, the perspective with which Helen Clay Frick founded the institution, and the values and viewpoints the collection reveals, sometimes unwittingly. Succinctly stated by activists La Tanya S. Autry and Mike Murawski in their global advocacy initiative, “Museums are not neutral.” Our collection originates from a place of inherent privilege and bias. The Gilded Age was golden for only some. Though it coincides with the Progressive Era, it is also a period of immense disparities in wealth, strained class relations, violent labor conflicts, nativism and xenophobia, Jim Crow, and segregation. Turning the spotlight on rarely seen objects from Clayton and The Frick Art Museum, this project will consider the collection from new perspectives and acknowledge and confront the inherent privilege and bias it represents while envisioning what kind of museum the Frick can be in the future. In this way, the exhibition will invite visitors to participate in the institution’s reckoning and shape the museum’s path forward.

[more+]

Dominic Chambers is a New Haven-based artist from St.Louis, MO. Chambers received his BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and an MFA from the Yale University School of Art in 2019. Chambers creates large scale paintings and drawings that reference literary narratives cited in books, various mythologies, and African-American history. Specifically, working through color field paintings, his current work is invested in exploring moments of contemplation and meditation through reading and leisure. His work is founded upon the relationship between reality and fantasy. At this illusory boundary, Chambers negotiates ideas of magical realism by presenting Black figures as they delve into literature and contemplation within imagined landscapes. These subtle, leisurely moments not only celebrate each subject’s visionary power but further negate pervasive and toxic clichés, instead focusing on Black talent, creativity and mysticism. Chambers has exhibited his work in exhibitions in the United States and Europe. He has participated in a number of residencies, including The Yale Norfolk summer residency and the New York Studio residency Program in Brooklyn, NY.

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 starting on Thursday, September 3, 2020! This exhibition and its reception is free and welcomes all. Timed ticket will be required for entry.

November 27 – December 20, 2020
422 Wood St. Pittsburgh, PA 15222
This exhibition is in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership’s Safe Holiday Season of Creative Experiences and Reimagined Traditions. The affiliated Associated Artists of Pittsburgh demonstrate a solid foundation in technique and a deep practice affiliated with materiality. The works by the artists in the exhibition demonstrate a feeling of vertigo, that is a feeling of being off-balance. Some works question what we take for granted; others deconstruct what is normal; and other sculptures alter our perspective of space. No doubt the artists' works unabashedly communicate personal, individual narratives.
This exhibition was juried by Grace Chin, Executive Director of The Sculpture Center in Cleveland, OH.
Gallery hours:
Friday 12:00-6:00
Saturday & Sunday 10:00-4:00

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Jodi Kantor comes to Pittsburgh virtually with She Said, written with Megan Twohey. Together they broke the news of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment and abuse for the New York TimesShe Said tells the untold story of their investigation and its consequences for the #MeToo movement.

For years, reporters had tried to get to the truth about Harvey Weinstein’s treatment of women and the long-circulating rumors of his wrongdoing. When Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey began their investigation into the prominent Hollywood producer for the New York Times, his name was still synonymous with power. Persisting, Kantor and Twohey were able to convince some sources to go on the record, setting in motion a dramatic final showdown between Weinstein and the New York Times.

In the tradition of great investigative journalism, She Said tells a potent story about the power of truth. Kantor and Twohey describe the consequences of their reporting for the #MeToo movement and the inspiring and affecting journeys of the women who spoke up—for the sake of other women, for future generations, and for themselves.

Virtual Glassblowing Demonstration + Gallery Tour: Friday, October 2 from 6-8pm

“The United” examines the incredibly complicated topic of immigration in a time when immigration systems are in crisis — affecting many of us closely, as members of diverse communities, as descendants of immigrants, or as immigrants ourselves. The exhibition with artwork from 12 artists from Belgium, Northern Ireland, Russia and the US explores the possibilities for proactive engagement with immigration issues, reconfiguring the status and function of art from passivity to active agency.
Artists include:
Najah Alboushi (Oakland, CA)
Sandra Bacchi (Pittsburgh, PA)
Ibraheem Basree (Columbus, OH)
May Cat (Portland, OR)
Tali Grinshpan (Walnut Creek, CA)
Alan Iwamura (Toledo, OH)
Priscilla Kar Yee Lo (Bloomington, IL)
Alexander Lozano (Dallas, TX)
Alison Lowry (Northern Ireland)
John Moran (US living in Temse, Belgium)
Kristine Rumman (Philadelphia, PA)
Vera Sadakova (St.Petersburg, Russia)

[more+]

Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the founding of The Frick Art Museum and 30th anniversary of Clayton’s restoration and public opening, we are turning a critical eye toward our permanent collection this fall. The Frick Reflects will examine the social context in which the Frick family lived, the perspective with which Helen Clay Frick founded the institution, and the values and viewpoints the collection reveals, sometimes unwittingly. Succinctly stated by activists La Tanya S. Autry and Mike Murawski in their global advocacy initiative, “Museums are not neutral.” Our collection originates from a place of inherent privilege and bias. The Gilded Age was golden for only some. Though it coincides with the Progressive Era, it is also a period of immense disparities in wealth, strained class relations, violent labor conflicts, nativism and xenophobia, Jim Crow, and segregation. Turning the spotlight on rarely seen objects from Clayton and The Frick Art Museum, this project will consider the collection from new perspectives and acknowledge and confront the inherent privilege and bias it represents while envisioning what kind of museum the Frick can be in the future. In this way, the exhibition will invite visitors to participate in the institution’s reckoning and shape the museum’s path forward.

[more+]

Dominic Chambers is a New Haven-based artist from St.Louis, MO. Chambers received his BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and an MFA from the Yale University School of Art in 2019. Chambers creates large scale paintings and drawings that reference literary narratives cited in books, various mythologies, and African-American history. Specifically, working through color field paintings, his current work is invested in exploring moments of contemplation and meditation through reading and leisure. His work is founded upon the relationship between reality and fantasy. At this illusory boundary, Chambers negotiates ideas of magical realism by presenting Black figures as they delve into literature and contemplation within imagined landscapes. These subtle, leisurely moments not only celebrate each subject’s visionary power but further negate pervasive and toxic clichés, instead focusing on Black talent, creativity and mysticism. Chambers has exhibited his work in exhibitions in the United States and Europe. He has participated in a number of residencies, including The Yale Norfolk summer residency and the New York Studio residency Program in Brooklyn, NY.

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 starting on Thursday, September 3, 2020! This exhibition and its reception is free and welcomes all. Timed ticket will be required for entry.

November 27 – December 20, 2020
422 Wood St. Pittsburgh, PA 15222
This exhibition is in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership’s Safe Holiday Season of Creative Experiences and Reimagined Traditions. The affiliated Associated Artists of Pittsburgh demonstrate a solid foundation in technique and a deep practice affiliated with materiality. The works by the artists in the exhibition demonstrate a feeling of vertigo, that is a feeling of being off-balance. Some works question what we take for granted; others deconstruct what is normal; and other sculptures alter our perspective of space. No doubt the artists' works unabashedly communicate personal, individual narratives.
This exhibition was juried by Grace Chin, Executive Director of The Sculpture Center in Cleveland, OH.
Gallery hours:
Friday 12:00-6:00
Saturday & Sunday 10:00-4:00

Support local artists and find the perfect gift this holiday season!

Handmade Arcade has reimagined its annual in-person convention and created the ultimate immersive online holiday experience for handmade goods lovers. They\'ve handpicked over 130 of the region\'s top makers, artists, and crafters and brought them together under one digital roof. With behind-the-scenes studio tours, hands-on demonstrations, and Meet the Maker Q&As, this is far more than an online store.

When COVID-19 hit, it crashed the creative economy, shuttering brick-and-mortar stores, closing in-person markets, and cutting off many artists\' primary revenue sources. Designed to help makers survive a time of unforeseen crisis, Handmade Arcade Virtual Marketplace helps them regain their connection to their community while learning to navigate a new world of e-commerce. By shopping with Handmade Arcade this holiday season, you play an essential role in refueling the makers\' creativity while helping them get back on their feet.

Handmade Arcade Virtual Marketplace is curated, and all goods are made by hand, hand-crafted, or represent each artist\'s creation. Products include jewelry and accessories, artwork, bath and body products, clothing, children\'s products, housewares, and home decor, paper goods,  gift items, pet products,  greeting cards, toys, ceramics, metalwork, glassware, and more!

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Jodi Kantor comes to Pittsburgh virtually with She Said, written with Megan Twohey. Together they broke the news of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment and abuse for the New York TimesShe Said tells the untold story of their investigation and its consequences for the #MeToo movement.

For years, reporters had tried to get to the truth about Harvey Weinstein’s treatment of women and the long-circulating rumors of his wrongdoing. When Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey began their investigation into the prominent Hollywood producer for the New York Times, his name was still synonymous with power. Persisting, Kantor and Twohey were able to convince some sources to go on the record, setting in motion a dramatic final showdown between Weinstein and the New York Times.

In the tradition of great investigative journalism, She Said tells a potent story about the power of truth. Kantor and Twohey describe the consequences of their reporting for the #MeToo movement and the inspiring and affecting journeys of the women who spoke up—for the sake of other women, for future generations, and for themselves.
