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.

The Pittsburgh Carrick High School student Art Show is hung and waiting for the Monday opening reception at 5:30.
Anyone who works in this magnificent building will get a sneak peek during the day. There were ten of us working most of the day Saturday to hang the art and place the tags by each piece.
Awards ceremony is Monday evening at 6:30 PM. Sponsored by CITIPARKS!
How about those Tiffany columns? The marble, the windows, the painted ceiling? And all the student artwork? Wow!
I can’t wait for the students to see their artwork on display in such a wonderful setting.
There will be refreshments at the reception.
Everything looks great!
You have to see it in person to get the full experience.
Remembering our mothers every day of the year
The photos are hung in the gallery with care.
The show’s Opening Reception is 12:30 Sunday. Hope to see you there. That’s it for the rhyme.
I know many of you are far away but send good thoughts. I am grateful to all my supportive friends and family who cheer me on.
Know many have teaching, work & family obligations or will be too far to come but am looking forward to seeing those who are able to make it!
Groundhog Phil needs to make sure there’s no snow or ice.Thanks to everyone who helped make the show possible-
Linda K. who nominated my work to the Art Committee (a good knitting friend)
Tom U. @ pixel.river images- Your archival pigment on the rag paper make the photos stellar
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)
My neighbor Joaquin with the eye, thanks for showing me how to use a tape measure properly and for helping me select the groupings.
If you are in town (Pittsburgh), hope you will stop in to Tula Organic Salon and Spa and see my photographs which will be displayed all of August.
The opening is Tuesday July 31st at 7PM. 2629 Murray Avenue- a few doors up from the old Poli’s restaurant.
I think some of the evites went directly to spam. You can see the work whenever the salon is open.
You’ve seen part of this photo- the header on the blog. I am titling it POSTCARD. The rest of the images will be online soon so out-of-towers and bloggers can view the show on the computer. Looking forward to seeing some of you Tuesday evening.
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.
