PAR- Fine Arts



Our exhibitions are carefully planned and something we take great pride in producing. From time to time we still present traditional shows -- as in, we hang work on walls -- but for the most part we focus on encouraging and supporting our artists in the creation of installation-based exhibitions.

If you aren't familiar with installation-based exhibitions, or just need a fresh point of inspiration, please visit The Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, PA.

A selection of our past, present and future exhibitions are listed below.

2017


Camp / Cave / Water was an exciting project that invited a group of artists, educators, and community leaders from around the country to transform their concepts into an exhibition experience. Led by Mike Fleisch and Sita Magnuson (champions of dpict) the group expressed their vision in various media and were our first exhibiting artists to explore the sense of smell.

FIRE was an immersive experience create by Cincinnati-based painter, Rick Mallette. For this exhibition, Rick stepped out of his comfort zone to incorporate sound and movement into his work. Adapting to the unique environment, curved wall pieces were created, as well as a leaning mural. Color led the way, but conceptual elements of fire wove the work together.

Era of Big Brains was our final exhibition in our #MakersMobile shipping container, before it reopens as the first official piece of our new facility. Brett Schieszer created a full wall, mixed media mural, exploring color texture, and pattern. The apposing wall was adorned with small framed collages creating an inspired conversation within the small gallery space.

Badge of Honor was an award-winning, conversational exhibition we created at The Kennedy Height's Arts Center. Throughout the four gallery spaces, viewers were asked to roam with open minds to allow the juxtaposition images of military combat, racial oppression, and thousands of toy soldiers create an internal conversation of our society's now.

2016


Making Room was the inaugural exhibition in our Nook gallery space and the perfect start of our next chapter. For this exhibition, Lisa Walcott created an inspired kinetic installation that spoke to progress, transformation, and interdependence. Her delicate and transformative "swarms" filled the gallery, asking visitors to tiptoe throughout an unfamiliar space in search of a clear path.

More info coming soon.

Northside Summer Market: The Grand Experiment was just that. We decided to test the waters, by adding an "Arts Stop" to Corridor 127 -- also known as The World's Longest Yard Sale -- and it worked out. Now, we organize and host this event on an annual basis.
