Those Fabulous Shoes in Another Art Show

IMG_8482Pittsburgh Milliones, University Prep School-  12th grade Group Project,

Mr. Kyle Kline Art Teacher.

They were in a hallway so it was difficult to get a good angle to show them at their best.

What a cool project, Mr. Kline!

When I looked into the courtyard I saw this scene

Carrick High School Art Show – Before and During

Pittsburgh Carrick High School Art Show Opening Monday May 5th.  City County Building downtown Pittsburgh on Grant Ave.  You can go there anytime this week and see the ceramics, jewelry, paintings, drawings and photography.  It looks wonderful.

The art staff along with some volunteer assistants got together on Saturday from 8-2 and set it all up.  This is the seventh year for the show.

Tonight at the opening I went upstairs and shot from the enclosed balcony (hence some reflection)

It was great to see so many students, families and teachers and even the Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Linda Lane came and selected an artwork to be awarded the Superintendent’s Award.

Gallery Crawl Downtown Friday Night

Got a sneak preview Thursday afternoon. Was at a meeting with the Penn State professors and preservice teachers ( I learned that student teacher is no longer the correct term!)

We were surrounded by terrific art created by Pittsburgh Public School students from all over the city!

The Pittsburgh Public Schools All City Art Show is in the Cultural Trust Gallery – 807 Liberty Avenue.

Click this link from the Post-Gazette to get all the Gallery Crawl  information and locations (5:30-9:00) and be sure to stop in and see the student artwork.

I loved the arc of shoes created by Mr.Kyle Kline’s art classes at Pittsburgh University Prep. Each one an original design. Painted on cardboard (which could not have been easy to cut out)

In the next block, I was too late to pop into the ToonSeum but  captured a glimpse of the Golden Book Art Exhibit through the front window. I saw some familiar titles as I peered through the glass and look forward to seeing them in person tomorrow.

The Golden Legacy: Original Art from 65 years of GoldenBook Exhibit will be up until June 30th.

The ToonSeum is located at 945 Liberty Avenue, downtown Pittsburgh.

Do you have a favorite Golden Book you remember from childhood?

 

Mine would be Mickey Mouse Picnic and Santa’s Toy Shop (adapted from a 1932 Disney animated short) 

 

I also loved the Tiny Golden Book series, especially The Naughty Little Guest by Dorothy Kunhardt and illustrated by Garth Williams.  I had a Giant Golden Book of Christmas I liked, too, and can remember my mother reading me Granny Glittens and Her Amazing Mittens Story by Getrude Crampton.

Introducing Emerging Artist- Erica Ayla Denien Ross

Thursday night as I was hanging up my coat at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, I met the nicest couple who had just driven in from Indiana, PA.

And when I left to put on my coat to go home, there they were and  I met them again, this time with Erica.

Erica who painted Monochromatic Plague using coffee!

Erica 18, asked which work was mine ( I thought it was kind of her to ask) and I told her and then she showed me hers.  I asked if I might photograph her and blog her and her artwork.  Everyone agreed it would be fine to do.

She’s a senior at Garrett High School.  After graduation when fall comes, she’s headed to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. living in the dorm.

Thank you Erica and family for allowing me to post you and your piece today.  Your early work!  Looking forward to updates and following your art career.

“The Art Institute of Pittsburgh will feature local high school art and media educators’ artwork in a month-long exhibition to celebrate their creativity, and thank them for positively affecting the lives of so many students.” The show is in the gallery for a month. Check it out if you are in the city.

Groundhog Phil needs to make sure there’s no snow or ice.

Mark and Jennifer at Panza Gallery who made an all out effort and framed and matted to make the show look so polished and professional.

Thanks to Steve who helped load the car before school and drove to Millvale Wednesday to take the photos I tried to switch out in frames. HA!

Charlotte T. the coordinator and the entire Art Committee at the First Unitarian Church.  (At the risk of spelling anyone’s name incorrectly I will thank the committee)

Justin Sorensen Sets Up Exhibition (Voice of rational being) at UnSmoke Artspace

After a drive from Rhode Island School of Design to Erie PA and then today to Braddock, PA, Justin Sorensen is setting up his artwork for Friday night’s opening at UnSmoke Artspace .  Yesterday’s blogpost showed Aaron Meyers installing his portion of the exhibition but Justin hadn’t arrived yet.

I called Aaron and asked if I could come over and shoot Justin for the blog and he said it was fine by them.

I drove over with my neighbor who can’t make the opening so he could catch a preview of the exhibition.  Justin was a good sport and we didn’t stay too long as they were really busy completing the final preparations.  Twenty four hours later and Aaron was still drilling  into the brick walls.

They took a break and showed us around and I was able to capture Justin and his artwork for today’s post and photos.  Opening Friday night at 6 PM. Unsmoke Artspace 1137 Braddock Avenue, Braddock PA.
