Current Exhibition
Peddling Personalities: Portrait and Still Life Pairings
Saturday October 25, 2014 - Sunday March 01, 2015
Free


L: Jerome Myers (1867-1940), Self-Portrait in Feathered Hat, 1927, Oil on Canvas, 30 1/4 x 25 in., Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Barry E. Downes, 2007.13

R: Kurt Pfaff, Red Shoes and Brass Clock, 2014, Oil on Canvas, 16 x 20 in.
This exhibition will pair still life paintings created by regional artists with portraits from our permanent collection. Fourteen contemporary regional artists were invited to select a portrait from the Museum's collection and asked to pair up one of their still life works with the portrait. Artists could submit an existing still life or were invited to create a new work for the exhibition. The artists were asked to consider how the objects in their still life might reflect the person in the portrait and were invited to write an extended label explaining their selections.

This exhibition is one component of a multi-school project that explores selfies, self-portraiture, self-exploration and self-expression. The project is named Self-E. An exhibition of student work that results from this project will go on display in the Museum on November 15. As part of the selfie/Self-E project, students will visit the Museum for an immersive tour during which they will experience numerous activities that help explore how artists express themselves or their subjects. One of the components will include examining how objects sometimes seem to define who we are. Students will explore the Peddling Personalities exhibition as they explore this phenomenon and will have an opportunity to create still life installations that they think reflect the people in the portraits.

Pop-Up Exhibition Featuring Richard Claraval and Mona Wiley
Wednesday December 03, 2014 - Sunday January 04, 2015
Free

Richard Claraval is an award winning draftsman and sculptor. Similar to the way a jazz performer uses a familiar song as a starting point for improvisation, he uses the Renaissancesque human figure as inspiration for creating abstract expressionist gesture. Throughout history, various harmonious forms have been placed near the figure to extend its gesture, such as the swirling draperies of Baroque and Renaissance paintings. What Claraval wants though is not just to have complimentary forms exist in the same space as the human figure, but actually have them flowing from, and into it, thus integrating the two into a single, more complex form.

Claraval received a B.A. in art from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1977. His drawings have been in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the Eastern U.S., including The Bascom Center for the Visual Arts, North Carolina; Carnegie Museum of Art; and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, among others. Claraval received a juror's award at an Associated Artists of Pittsburgh's Annual Exhibition at Carnegie Museum of Art and a juror's award at a group exhibition at Panza Gallery. His work is in numerous collections, including the Westinghouse Corporation.

Mona Wiley, a German born, Egyptian/Italian artist, is emotionally driven to express herself on canvas. Her work involves intense and free flowing emotions that transcend through painting mediums to show themselves as bright colors, irregular proportions, and varying textures. Each work is a process and is directly linked to a specific moment of emotion or conflict.

Wiley creates these pieces because she has a desire to extricate her inner thoughts and emotions into visual concepts. The paintings are incredibly personal for her and yet they also arouse emotional responses in the viewer as well.

Wiley is currently living and working in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts and Master's Degree in Professional Leadership with an Arts Leadership concentration at Carlow University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Opening: Friday, December 12 from 5-7 PM at Art on Tap. Admission is $7 and includes music by Brian Weaver, a scavenger hunt, light bites from Chef Mark's Palate and drinks, including beer from All Saints Brewing Company. This month's Art on Tap is sponsored by ThinkGreensburg.
