Great Waves Exhibition at Revision Space
This summer, the crew at Revision Space is pleased to present the Great Waves exhibition, a rotating set of works by three very talented, award-winning artists. After the opening reception on June 27 from 6-10PM, you’ll be able to notice Great Waves reiterated in different forms and in different exhibits all summer through the first week of September.
Masha Fikhman, a University of Pittsburgh alum with a B.A. in Studio Arts and History of Art has toured the world since graduating in 2011, and she’s known for her quirky, whimsical visual art. Her vibrant paintings are eye-catching and truly delightful. She’ll be joined by Zack Lee, also a University of Pittsburgh Studio Art alum from the class of 2013. The recipient of numerous awards for his undergraduate achievements, he’s had work exhibited in Pittsburgh, Portland, and Annapolis. His paintings, generally surreal abstractions, are dreamy and subtle while contemplative at once.
Travis Schwab, a self-taught artist living in Pittsburgh, will exhibit his work as well. Named by Art Business News‘s “30 under 30 Groundbreaking Artists,” Schwab is someone to keep an eye on. His paintings, especially his recent work, show intense technical skill as well as a gift for noticing emotion in portraits as a glimpse of the human condition.
