It occurs to me that painting is a comment. Color, line and brushwork create a language - one that seems more knowing - a glance at the truth. No matter the subject matter, it is essential that the artist trust the color and line to create through them a soulful response and a trustworthy recording of the human experience.
Artists Image Resource (AIR) has been supporting engaging and challenging work through its on-going programming since 1996. This national juried exhibition is a way to make the best of contemporary printmaking visible to a large audience in the Pittsburgh region. Because this is an election year, special consideration will be given to socially and politically engaged print work.
Entry Deadline: 10/16/16

Journeys: Catalonia & Euskadi—a seriesinspired in both, the artist’s 2013 as well as her previous visits to Catalonia and her early childhood memories of her father’s family in the Basque Country
Stella Untalan has created a series of drawings that are driven not by results but by process. Each of these drawings is made using the same ink, the same pen, the same unrelenting process. The results reveal themselves to be reminders of her walks and runs in the woods. The straight trunks making blurred lines that suggest motion, space, and time — a DNA image of being in the woods.
The installation consists of her drawings, sound by Lesley Tao Mowat, and a corrugated cardboard construction: [bar] by Brian David Dennis. Come experience being in the woods.
In probably less than 30 minutes you can write a personal story and donate a miniature object that will become a part of Philadelphia’s history. The piece will be on permanent view at The Philadelphia International Airport, Terminal F to the 30 million annual passengers. The project is open to anyone and free to participate.
It's spring and it's getting greener every minute. We've heard people say "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" — really? Is that what this show is all about? Maybe, maybe not. Come see how thirty artists interpreted our theme in more than 60 pieces of work no larger than 5.5 x 8.5, unframed.

District’s Studio Grant Program concentrates explicitly on the promotion of contemporary women artists.
