Our Gallery Crawl Picks
The first Gallery Crawl of 2012 in the Cultural District is happening this Friday, January 27th. Since it’s been a while, we’ve decided to list a few of our picks for must-see exhibits at the crawl. These only happen four times a year, so brave the cold and get your art on! Subsequent crawl dates are April 27, July 13, September 28. I know we’re looking forward to warmer times, but hey – you have to keep yourself occupied in the winter months too. For the full rundown of all the haps, hop on over to the Cultural Trust’s page, but not before you check out our recommendations! We’ve opted not to include the always poppin’ Wood Street and SPACE galleries because like, duh, that’s so obvi!
943 Liberty Avenue – Path: An Installation by Elin Hansdottir: A special maze-like installation incorporating light and space. Held over from Long are the Days, Short are the Nights, an exhibit at Wood Street Galleries.
August Wilson Center for African American Culture 980 Liberty Avenue – Teenie Memories: See Pittsburgh Post-Gazette photographers Bill Wade and Rebecca Droke’s present-day portraits and video interviews of people who Charles â€œTeenieâ€ Harris photographed.
709 Penn Gallery – Paper Thin Theater: Kathryn Carr’s collection of paper cut art focuses on the art of storytelling; children’s tales, puppetry, opera and the stage are presented in a narrative silhouette form. Her images mix nostalgia, dreams, nightmares and fleeting memories.
And don’t forget about Project Pop-Up: Downtown, which features the following spaces:
929 Liberty Ave – Awesome Books
604 Liberty Avenue – Summer Sky Eternal
131 Seventh St – The Society for the Advancement of Miniature Curiosa; Symbiotic Collusion
208 Sixth St – Steel Town Craft Co-Lab
