103rd Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Annual Exhibition|
Sunday June 01, 2014 - Sunday August 31, 2014
The Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Annual Exhibition is, as of this year, a 103-year-old tradition that continues to inspire artists to prepare for this exciting event, unique to the AAP. This exhibition is the oldest and longest continuing survey of regional art in the country. This showing has quite a record of past exhibiting artists including Henry Koerner, Samuel Rosenberg, Philip Pearlstein, Jonathan Borofsky, Peter Muller Munk, Virginia Cuthbert, Mary Cassatt, and Andy Warhol to name only a few. Averaging over 400 art lovers in attendance, the opening night remains an important event in the Pittsburgh arts community. This showing is especially important in this time of a rapidly growing Pittsburgh arts community acquiring national notice.
After the 2013 exhibition, Barbara Jones, Chief Curator of the Westmoreland Museum of American Art approached AAP offering to host the Annual Exhibition at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art @rt 30, the Museum's temporary site while the main building is undergoing a major renovation and expansion. Barbara Jones is serving as juror for this exhibition which often draws as many as 250 artists. Jurying took place on April 28, 2014 and was open to all artists within a 150-mile radius of Pittsburgh. Artists do not have to be current members of the AAP.
Opening celebration: Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM; Artist Awards will be presented at 7:30 PM.
