ARTIST INTERRUPTED: The Art of Tess Senay b. 1992 d. 2012

Exhibition Dates: June 28-August 2, 2014
Exhibition Reception: Saturday, June 28, 2014, 7:00-9:00 p.m.

This exhibition features the original artwork of the late Tess Senay Raynovich, a beautiful and generous soul, determined to create art and a life that would be meaningful and authentic.  Tess Senay walked the walk of love, compassion and truth through her art, her words and her actions.  Her timeline of works as an emerging  artist featured in this exhibition reveal her exploration of media, meaning and humor. The next step on her path was to be an Eco-Artist.  Although unfulfilled, a fund has been established in her name to support artists and eco-arts.

This reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.



Connected at the Roots:
An African American Art Exhibition

September 12-November 2, 2014
Exhibition Reception: Friday, September 12, 2014

Deadline Extension: August 4, 2014

Roots are the foundation of African American culture.  They provide the commonalities that help us grow from generation to generation, and are the links of similar experiences that bind us together as one community. This exhibition will give artists the opportunity to tell the story of how their roots have given meaning to their lives.

This exhibition will be juried by LaVerne Kemp, an award-winning, Pittsburgh native, widely acclaimed for her work in fiber arts, weaving, and jewelry design. Kemp graduated with a BFA from California University of PA, and studied graduate work in child development from the University of Pittsburgh. Currently she is an active teaching artist for both the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.   She serves as the president of Women of Visions, Inc., a group devoted to the promotion and appreciation of artwork by African American women.
