The Annual Holiday Shop has been a tradition at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.
This year’s holiday shop will open to the public on Friday November 15, 2013.
Come find gifts for friends and family from your favorite Pittsburgh artists.
Being a transitional year for the Guilds at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, members of the Guilds will be given an opportunity to exhibit their current work under one umbrella of an all Guild exhibition titled “The New Collective.” PCA Guild Exhibition Committee invites PCA- Affiliated -Guild artists to exhibit their current work in this exhibition. The Guild Exhibition Committee is reorganizing the approach to Guild exhibitions to be in alignment with current times and to be driven by the Guilds; no longer using themes as a basis for exhibitions.
The show consists of a series of over 100 small printed images, taken in and around Pittsburgh with an iPhone.
The London-based artist trained as a painter then transitioned to writing about art and art theory, before moving into leadership roles in art schools, including Dean of the College of Fine Arts at Carnegie Mellon University. About her current artwork she says. "I started taking photos, looking at the overlooked, recording the everyday. I loved the limitations of the technology: it provided something to work against, while focusing on the image and it's structure."
