PCA Shop Screening for New Artists


The Shop at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts will be screening artwork by new consignment artists to complement the existing mix of work currently represented. Because the Shop receives many requests from those who wish to show with us, we ask that interested artists submit to our digital screening for review. As our main focus during business hours is to represent and promote the artwork we currently have available, please be aware that PCA Shop staff will not review artwork on a walk-in basis.

Glass Tube

Bohyun Yoon
Pittsburgh Center for the Arts
August 10, 2012 to October 28, 2012

Yoon's exhibit, Glass Tube, is a single channel video installation comprised of edited recordings from staged performances. These performances involved various interactions with his own hand-blown glass objects. The result is a work which creates a video patchwork for glass to become an instrument of sound. Yoon received his MFA in glass from the Rhode Island School of Design, as well as, an MFA from Tama Art University in Tokyo, Japan.

Episodic Drift

Jennifer Williams
Pittsburgh Center for the Arts
August 10, 2012 to October 28, 2012

Jennifer Williams is known for her over-sized photo collages which are stuck to walls, floors and ceilings. In Episodic Drift she uses numerous photographs of ladders. The images are printed on adhesive-backed vinyl (called Photo-Tex), mounted on foam-core, and then hung throughout the gallery creating a 3D collage. Williams holds an MFA from Goldsmiths College in London and a BFA from The Cooper Union in New York City.

The Practical Romantic

Lewis Colburn
Pittsburgh Center for the Arts
August 10, 2012 to October 28, 2012

Lewis Colburn's installation, The Practical Romantic, consists of a sculpture and photographs. The sculpture is a replica of a rock formation in Germany, the site for Kaspar David Friedrich's painting The Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog. The photos were taken with the sculpture in Philadelphia's Kensington district, where the sculpture serves as a set transposing Friedrich's image of romantic nature into Colburn's own rapidly changing Philly neighborhood. Colburn earned his MFA in sculpture at Syracuse University.
