Small Shrines
April 5-27, 2013
Reception: Friday, April 26, 2013, 6:00-9:00 p.m.
*The reception coincides with Art Blooms and the Spring Gallery Walk

From the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe to the Shinto Shrines of Japan, shrines have been used throughout history as icons, relics, focal points of awe and respect to be venerated or worshiped. They are found in churches, homes, cemeteries and temples. Some are temporary, portable or even miniature, and some are laden with decoration, finely crafted and grandiose. This juried exhibition will feature two-dimensional and three-dimensional works made in honor, dedication or celebration of an individual, a group of people, a place, a thing or an idea.

This exhibition is juried by Natalie Grandinetti and Staci Offutt. Offutt completed her Master of Fine Arts at Parsons and Bachelor at West Virginia University. Grandinetti obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Penn State University. Both Grandinetti and Offutt are engaged in the Pittsburgh art scene, participating in community art projects and gallery exhibitions, teaching multidisciplinary art classes, and maintaining active studio practices.

Here & Now / Architecture Transformed 
January 18- February 23, 2013
*The reception coincides with Westman's solo exhibition.

This solo exhibition features the artwork of Barbara Westman, juror of Here & Now:

"My work in both areas, printmaking and fiber art, reflects my interest in the natural and man-made worlds. The richness of textures, structures and forms in our environment inspires me. I look for the beauty in microscopic details or in a large architectural structure. My methodology is consistent: I look, analyze, deconstruct, build and assemble my vision. Materials and techniques are similar in all my work, but there is a new view of my experience in each piece. My works are mostly monochromatic or achromatic to maintain the simplicity and to focus on composition and textures. By continuing work on a series, I create a representation of my observations and recollections. I analyze while searching for answers on the coexistence of two worlds: natural and man-made".

 

First Fruit XVI: Tending Our Mothers' Gardens
September 21 - November 2, 2012

"Our Mothers' Gardens" is the title essay of a 1983 book by Alice Walker that also contains 35 other pieces that introduce her "Womanist" aesthetic.  Now, nearly 30 years later, black women in the arts continue in that vein.  "Our Mothers' Gardens" may be understood as a metaphor for the community of creativity that nourishes African American culture. In the longstanding African tradition of "taking a village to raise a child," generations of African American women artists have remained sensitive to their responsibility to tend the garden that will ensure their cultural survival.

This exhibition will present works by several African American women artists that demonstrate their awareness that they are the inheritors of a distinctive heritage and who are motivated to "pay it forward" in their artistic handiwork and ongoing engagement with their constituent communities. Much of the work will be of the installation genre, intended to make Sweetwater's Balcony Gallery a transformational experience for visitors. Featured artists include: Ann Tanksley, LaVerne Kemp, Charlotte Ka, Christine Bethea, Tina Brewer and Leslie Ansley.

The exhibition is curated by Elizabeth Asche Douglas, B.F.A., Painting & Design, Carnegie Mellon University; M.A., Art History & Criticism, University of Pittsburgh; additional study, University of Pennsylvania.

 

In the Belly of the Beast
June 30- July 28, 2012

The raw force of nature unleashed. The soul of a beast exposed. The sheer power of entities not made by man that humble humanity into feeling small. This exhibit will reveal the essence of the organic: plants, animals, water, earth, sky, fire. Not in the safe, controllable way people see them, but instead showing the dynamic strength and ungovernable temperament that they truly possess. Selected art will focus on Mother Earth in an unaccustomed way. Work may also express the contradiction of what is man-made versus wild.

This exhibition is juried by Cynthia Shaffer, who built her art career in New York, Chicago and Phoenix before moving to Pittsburgh in 1990. She currently divides her time between henna tattooing, teaching art, taking photographs of animals at the Butler County Humane Society, volunteering at the ARL Wildlife Center, and working on her own art. Using bones, dead bugs, stones, feathers and other natural elements, Shaffer creates intricate patterns and mandala designs that juxtapose these components. Her objective is to show the beauty in things most people find repellent. "The color of a Japanese beetle is more exquisite than I can paint. The curve of a pelvic bone is more graceful than I can design. It fascinates me."

The opening reception of In the Belly of the Beast will be attended by Pennsylvania creatures saved by the Animal Rescue League Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, with photographs and information about their organization.

An Object in Motion
February 4 - 25, 2012

Wood grain has a depth and warmth that is very engaging.  Used in combination with paint or other materials, the contrast can be dynamic. This exhibition, juried by Brian Ferrell, features work created with wood where shape, material, and surface texture imply compositional movement. 

Brian Ferrell is a Southwestern Pennsylvania artist who creates sculpture in functional forms, designing one-of-a-kind furniture and custom tableware. Since 2000, his work has been regularly exhibited in group and solo exhibits on a national level, published in "500 Tables" and "Pewter Studio" by Lark Books, and purchased by private collectors in the US and Europe. In the summer of 2008 he was honored with a solo exhibition at Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and in 2010 received a full page review in American Craft magazine for his exhibition at the Appalachian Center for Craft (Smithville, TN). Ferrell currently lives and maintains an active studio in Greensburg, PA where he is also Assistant Professor of Art at Seton Hill University. He holds a BFA in jewelry/metals from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and an MFA in Metals from the Program in Artisanry at University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth.

 

Stacks
September 30 – October 28, 2011

September 2011-September 2012 marks artist Romare Bearden’s centennial year. During his time he achieved recognition for his complex semiabstract collages of photographs and painted paper on canvas. The narrative structure of his work depicts African American culture, including ritual, music, and family as his predominant themes. By the 1960s Bearden was recognized as the preeminent collagist in the U.S. He is regarded as one of the most important American artists of the 20th century.  Romare Bearden spent some time in Pittsburgh and went to high school at Peabody.  A large part of his work was inspired by his time in Pittsburgh.  Bearden also had a reputation and several endeavors to inspire and promote other African American and younger artists, namely The Studio Museum of Harlem and Cinque Gallery, both in New York City. 

The show is titled Stacks based on Bearden’s reflections on the influence the smokestacks of Pittsburgh had on his work.  Thinking about the idea of stacks as layers, Bearden created work in a collage aesthetic and used color and space all in stacks.  Stacks also refers to artistic influence.  As artists we stack ideas, techniques and environments.  One artist influences another in stacks.  Artists including Christiane Leach, Staycee Pearl, Blaine Siegel, and Brett Wormsley share their Bearden inspirations in various ways in this exhibition.  Stacks is curated by Alisha Wormsley, a resident and teaching artist for many cultural institutions including The Romare Bearden Foundation.


My Place
September 2-23, 2011

This exhibition will present a variety of interpretations of what “My Place” may be and may mean to the artists. This could be simply the immediate environment where they live, country or city; something more intimate as their home or the identity of space, whether real or just imaginary. The artwork may also focus on expressing feelings and emotions the artist may have towards this “place.” Where am I now? What place am I longing for? In that place, will I find comfort? The artists will give the viewer an opportunity to see through their work the way that they “see” their place. This exhibition is juried by Barbara Westman.

Westman has been a resident of Pennsylvania since 2002 when she moved from Poland. She obtained her dual MFA in Fiber Art and Printmaking at The Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, Poland. Since her arrival to the US she has been dividing her time between teaching and working on her own art. She evenly enjoys fiber art and printmaking. Westman’s interests are in textures and structures, whether natural or man-made. Her observation and interpretation of both is presented in her prints and fiber art works. Currently Barbara Westman is an Assistant Professor of Fiber Art and Printmaking at Slippery Rock University. Over the years she participated in numerous national and international art exhibits.

Who Me? Exhibition juried by Joyce Werwie Perry
February 5- February 26, 2011

This exhibition asks us to consider what art reveals about you as a person, or what kind of habits, struggles, joys, patterns, quirks or obsessions you have discovered in making art. In this self-portrait exhibition, artists were asked to enter works that are either a physical representation of themselves or any subject that strongly represents a dominant aspect of their personality.  It is a chance for the artists to look inward, and possibly discover something new about themselves and give the viewer some insight into who they are.

 

Traveling Creatures: A Painting Exhibition by Tara Zalewsky-Nease
January 7-February 28, 2011

Traveling Creatures is a series of oil paintings based on the experiences of traveling and being a stranger
in a place. The paintings feature the apparition of a strange mitt like creature posing in front of an exotic background. These creatures are based on textile sculptures that the artist created by embroidering oven mitts into fish-like puppets. The puppets were then Photoshopped into snapshots from the artist's travels to Venice and Paris. The creatures were added to the paintings in response to the artist's question of "can anything new really be done in a place where so much art has been done there before?"

September 10 - October 9, 2010
*Featuring live music by DJ Soy Sos

This is MAVUNO's 14th annual exhibition, featuring artwork created by emerging and accomplished African American artists and artists whose work celebrates African American culture. This year's exhibition is inspired by the last two lines of the late Lucille Clifton's poem, Won't You Celebrate with Me, "Come celebrate with me the fact that everyday something has tried to kill me, and has failed!"

This exhibition is juried by Vanessa German, an award winning, multi-disciplinary artist. A performer and sculptor, German creates contemporary power figures inspired by the everyday extraordinary might of the human spirit. The theme, Come Celebrate with Me, invites artists to visually acknowledge, express and exhort the grief, pain, sorrow, triumph, and transformation of our stories. From transformation to living ritual, Come Celebrate with Me is not only a call to MAVUNO, it is a call to community, a call to the connectivity of humanity, a call to join in the recognition and celebration of hands and imagination at work- and in work, in purpose. Come Celebrate with Me is an open invitation to the eyes, to the mind and to the spirit.

March & April, Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 5:00pm

This is an exhibition of one local girl's international explorations and her attempts to transpire these emotions, recollections, and experiences to the public in two dimensional glimpses. These photographs and works illustrate one artist's valued experiences that a viewer can only interpret from a secondhand stand point. Each interaction between person and environment is automatically individualistic whether it is captured in a camera or summarized by pencils and pastels. Viewers are asked to allow this exhibition to conjure up their own experiences, reactions, and emotions so that they can offer a secondhand experience to another person in our ever globalizing world. Secondhand offers an intriguing assembly of artwork that not only exhibits specific experiences but also offers to ignite experience for its viewers.
