Noted Pittsburgh art dealer and art critic Graham Shearing, who curated the show, describes it as follows:
“How did a nun capture the imagination of the public simply through an enthusiastic contemplation of art? And through the unlikely medium of television?
This exhibition suggests that she found the spiritual not only in religious art, but in other, unlikely sources. Here, a collection of art from public and private collections, and the work of living artists, reveals diverse visions of the spiritual. This may require hard looking, which was the practice of this nun, following the precept of the Victorian critic, John Ruskin: ‘To see clearly,’ he observed, ‘is poetry, prophecy, and religion, – all in one.’
Sister Wendy died late last year in a convent in England, but the shock in a full black habit standing purposefully in front of a canvas by Mark Rothko, in a video here, hopefully will give visitors pause for thought, and keep her memory alive.
Looking at art is an exercise in divination: an exercise open to all. Take the rough with the smooth.”

Seth Clark solo booth with Paradigm at SCOPE New York
SCOPE New York We will have a solo presentation of Seth Clark's work at SCOPE New York. This will be our first time showing at the fair in New York. Seth Clark explores deteriorating architecture in his practice, through a complex, mixed media layering process that tricks the eye from afar. We are thankful to SCOPE New York for granting us a Program Award to feature Seth Clark's work as part of their dedication to highlighting The New Contemporary at the fair. The New Contemporary is the next big frontier in the art world that transcends canonical genres and trends. It is an evolution of the graffiti and urbanism movements into an art world context. What was once deemed "alternative" is now being celebrated in the world's most formative museums and institutions and becoming the envy of collectors around the world.

Member Sharon Massey shows in "Pathways" at Society for Contemporary Craft
February 15, 2018 - May 5, 2019 at the BNY Mellon Satellite Gallery
Pathways features a selection of vibrant works by jeweler, metalsmith and enamelist Sharon Massey. The exhibiting work reveals connections and patterns between people that are invisible or under appreciated.
Meant to invoke thoughts of boundaries, networks, and connections, Massey created enameled steel pieces in her exhibition that represent common man-made patterns, such as masonry, roadways, nets, and fences, seen in every day life. By highlighting the micro and macro scale of these patterns and motifs, Massey’s work explores these markings and their effects on how we exist within this world and how we communicate in person and online, locally and globally.
CC’s BNY Mellon Satellite Gallery is located at 500 Grant St, Pittsburgh, PA 15219 (in the Lobby of the Steel Plaza T-Station at Oliver Street and Grant Street in downtown Pittsburgh). This exhibit is opened daily through midnight and is also free to the public.
Member Gary Jurysta 50 year retrospective at Southern Allegheny Museum of Art, Altoona
Gary Jurysta: Driven to Abstraction - February 22 - August 17
Disconnections is a term that can mean becoming isolated, separated or even the act of detaching one thing from another. It is a word that is continually present in every facet of our world today. In conversation or by watching the news, you may find yourself feeling removed from the world or even the person you are directly talking to. The objective of this show is to introduce the viewer to varying views of the word “disconnections” through the eyes of six different artists who are all at different points of their creative careers. The show will feature the following six artists:
Pati Beachley, AAP – Sculpture Christ “Bagpainter” Crites – Painting, Visiting Seattle Artist Kathy Dlugos – Painting/Drawing Samantha Lantz – Printmaking/Sculpture Carolyn Pierotti - Painting James Schaffer – Photography
Please see the following dates for the show:
Show duration: 3/9/2019 – 4/13/2019 Opening Reception: 3/9/2019, 6PM TO 8PM Chris Crites Artist Talk and Reception: 4/6/2019 6PM to 8pm.

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 3, 6-9pm
Closing Celebration: Saturday, March 30, 6-9pm
Gallery Hours: Sundays 1-4pm, or by Appointment
To appear. To exist. elevates the ways we fill in the void separating experience and feeling. Nicole Czapinski closes this gap with sculptures that feature tenuous physical connections between objects. Amelia Konow travels to sites of spiritual experiences connected to the landscape and uses aura photography techniques to capture a feeling that cannot be seen otherwise. Their work comes together to create an exhibition that navigates the space between the mystical joy of living and the absurdity of being alive in the first place.

Member Oreen Cohen Opening up Industrial Makerspace in Millvale
Oreen Cohen and Joe Martin hope to open an industrial makerspace and co-op in the location of the old Millvale studio building.
The makerspace would provide basic tools and their maintenance, according to a proposal Cohen and Martin submitted to the MCDC. It would require its members’ attendance at safety and usage classes. Artists would potentially participate in a co-op arrangement, investing in and making decisions regarding the venture. Membership fees and details have yet to be determined.
