Event Description

 

Art and the Evolution of Craft in the 21st Century
Tuesday, August 16, 2011, 7 pm
$10 Suggested donation; $5 Suggested student donation

The Associated Artists of Pittsburgh (AAP) is celebrating 101 years as a driving force in Pittsburgh’s dynamic cultural life with the presentation of its 101st Annual Exhibition, showcasing the work of Pittsburgh regional artists at the Society for Contemporary Craft (SCC) November 11, 2011 through January 14, 2012.

With a focus on works created within the intersection of contemporary art, craft and design, this year’s exhibition is being juried by Fo Wilson, a maker, educator, independent curator and writer from Chicago, Illinois. Wilson’s work uses the language of furniture and domestic objects to investigate ideas around identity and culture in a way that often crosses boundaries. She will lecture about art and the evolution of craft within a twenty-first century context on Tuesday, August 16 at 7pm in SCC’s Main Galleries in the Strip District. Suggested donation is $10, $5 for students.

The 2011 juried show is open to all artists working in craft media, 18-years of age and older, living within 150 miles of Pittsburgh whose entry explores contemporary art and craft in either 2-d or 3-d format. Work can be entered for consideration by actual piece or as a digital file. For complete entry information, a prospectus and membership information visit www.aapgh.org, or email exhibition@aapgh.org
