AAP Spring Exhibitions

Associated Artists of Pittsburgh presents a solo show featuring AAP member artist Lisa Bergant Koi at Tomayko Gallery in Lawrence Hall, Point Park University. Opening reception is Thursday, May 11, 2017 from 6 - 8 pm. The show runs May 12th through June 3rd.

 

Departure(41) by Lisa Bergant Koi

A few words from the Artist:
"The work in my ongoing Departure series depicts indeterminate spaces. I am exploring visual perception and the effects movement has on it. I think about how our eyes dart to collect information as we move through space and how this physiology contributes to creating a personal version of reality. In that regard, I consider my paintings to fall under the banner of conceptual realism." - Lisa Bergant Koi

The Lawrence Hall Gallery is open to the public Monday through Saturday, 9 am - 6 pm. Visitors can enter the building on Wood Street, at the corner of the Boulevard of the Allies.

Associated Artists of Pittsburgh presents selected AAP member artists

for a group show at the Mine Factory curated by Christine Smith. Opening reception is Wednesday, May 3, 2017 from 6 - 9 pm. The show runs May 4th through May 27th, gallery hours by appointment.

Selected artists:
Carol Amidi, Kyle Anger, Theresa Antonellis, Patricia Barefoot, Seth Clark, Christopher Duncan, Cystal Latimer, Patti Menick, Kara Snyder, and Carolyn Wenning

Curator, Christine Smith

Christine Smith grew up adventuring throughout the bohemian San Francisco Bay Area then moved to culture-soaked Los Angeles to study Art History at UCLA. After moving to Pittsburgh six years ago she started Treading Art to continue her work as a Cultural Curator. She recently launched a membership program, Connect / Collect, that cultivates art collecting through distinguished experiences.

A few words from the curator:

"Having worked in younger cities before moving to Pittsburgh it's a privilege to be a part of AAP's spring exhibition history. The artistic world in this city continually inspires and impresses me and I'm ecstatic to work with talent that is new to me as well as with those that I've admired for some time. It was refreshing to let the artists who applied inspire the show's theme versus start the process with it all figured out." - Christine Smith

The third of AAP Spring Exhibitions was a Solo Show at Point Park University featuring Gary Jurysta

 

Gary Jurysta's work is currently on view. This event is a Closing Reception.

Associated Artists of Pittsburgh presents a solo show feautring AAP member artist Gary Jurysta at Tomayko Gallery in Lawrence Hall, Point Park University. Closing reception is Thursday, May 4, 2017 from 6 - 8 pm. The show runs April 14th through May 6th.

A few words from the Artist:

"These new pieces result from involvement in a technique that utilizes the application of fluid acrylic paint over a formed, non-flat canvas or paper surface. During the process I try to determine when the moment of optimum visual energy has been achieved. Stretched flat, the image reveals the paths of the paint over the contoured topology of the canvas." - Gary Jurysta

The Lawrence Hall Gallery is open to the public Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visitors can enter the building on Wood Street, at the corner of the Boulevard of the Allies.
