Sharon Massey solo exhibition
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.
Photo featured: Sharon Massey. Supply Chain, 2018, enamel on steel. Each piece is 8″ x 10″. Photo: Sharon Massey.

Stephanie Martin solo exhibition "Morphology" at UnSmoke Systems
Morphology, the debut solo exhibition by artist Stephanie Martin, explores the study of forms, shapes, and arrangement of parts of organisms in order to determine their function, development, and how they have been shaped by evolution. Here, Martin exhibits biomorphic expressionistic forms using low fire stoneware and ink drawings. The forms represent new worlds that range from a cellular level to a macroscopic planetary scale. The fabricated ecosystems are a representation of her perceptions and experiences of life familiar to Earth and yet an entirely new place. As an abstract reflection of biological forms within alternating scales, Martin's work focuses on dualities present in life and utilizes comparisons of attraction and repulsion. The overall processes involved with clay and ink drawings are a significant part of her practice, as they function as a way to express and reflect on personal experiences. She wants others to experience an evoked sense of living from these crafted worlds. In effort to achieve a symbiotic biomorphic form, Martin creates ecosystems implementing a variety of techniques with carving and drawing different textures, building hollow forms, implementing a variety of line work, and layering colors. These combinations of process take on a new life and evolve throughout her artistic practice.

Cory Bonnet P.H.L.F Lecture - Thurs. Apr. 11
The Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation (PHLF) will be hosting artist Cory Bonnet for a lecture on Thursday Apr. 11th from 6-7:30pm.
Landmarks Preservation Resource Center 744 Rebecca Avenue, Wilkinsburg, PA 15221
Through a series of false starts, stubbornness and a focus on incremental improvement, Pittsburgh painter Cory Bonnet found himself in a unique position of telling the story of preservation and sustainable building through painting. One of the main goals of his work is to develop a sense of belonging and community, he says, connecting people to their built environment and helping them understand their place in the continuing history of neighborhoods. Preservation, he contends, helps show how people in the past contributed to creating neighborhoods and a sense of identity and the idea that people are a part of the bigger picture.
About the presenter: Cory Bonnet is a Pittsburgh oil painter and preservationist who paints contemporary nostalgic scenes of Pittsburgh and the surrounding area using salvaged and reclaimed materials. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Named the “2017 Preservationist of the Year,” by the Young Preservationists Association of Pittsburgh, Bonnet was recently profiled in the winter issue of Preservation Magazine.
This lecture is FREE to the public. RSVPs are appreciated: email@example.com or 412-471-5808 ext. 527

Jamie Earnest - Artist Talk at Small Mall
Small Mall is back with the Tiny Talk series! Join us as we host a Micro Exhibition of work by painter Jamie Earnest for a one night only show. The show will be accompanied by an artist talk.
April 19th: 6-8pm
Facebook event link Lawrenceville Distilling will serve special artist inspired drinks at their pop up!
Additional work by Jamie will be available for purchase during the event. Donations will be going towards SisterFriend
More on Jamie: Jamie Earnest is interested in exploring the successes, tensions, and nuances of the idea of public space and domestic symbols, often tying together public and private space to continue a social and political commentary. Engagement between public and private realms creates a gray area of inertia that my painted spaces try to activate. She does not believe that a painting can change the world, but she does believe it powers communication and human interaction. With this, Jamie values ambiguity in her paintings.
Though her work includes specific symbols and some recognizable imagery, the conglomerate of sourced public spaces allows the harmonies to float in a cloud of obscurity. The painted space is claustrophobic and airy between the abstract and the familiar. Her paintings are often hybrids of her past and future trajectory of personal and public space paired with a social and political narrative. Pieces of familiar imagery are laid amongst the ambiguous to be tied together in no particular order by viewers.
"Sister Wendy Beckett: Envisioning Art" features several AAP artists
Please join us for the opening reception of "Sister Wendy Beckett: Envisioning Art", Curated by Graham Shearing. AAP artists showcased include: Zach Brown, Seth LeDonne, & Christopher Ruane.
Opening Reception: 3/21/19 from 4-6pm at Harlan Gallery, Seton Hill University Art Center, 207 W Otterman St., Greensburg, PA 15601.
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.”

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.
