Steel City Secret Cinema Part Deux

Image

This spring, take part in a unique art and film event at the Hollywood Theater in Dormont.  For our second event, bust out your shoulder pads, leg warmers, and acid-washed jeans as we are going back to the 1980′s!  We’ll once again be mashing up Pittsburgh-based artists and a cult classic horror film (this time, from the 80′s)… and we’ll be following up the evening with a month long display of the work at the Most Wanted Fine Art Gallery.

The movie will remain a secret, the art under wraps, but a ticket will gain you access to the film screening, a limited edition individually numbered movie poster of the “secret” film, access to the work of local artists, raffle giveaways, free food/drink, and local entertainment.

7:00 – 8:30pm – Art Gallery, Food/Drink, Live Music
8:30 – 10:15pm – Film Screening
10:15 – 10:45pm – Unveil Poster, Raffle Prizes

This event is set up to be not-for-profit.  All proceeds will be donated to Friends of the Hollywood Theater and the Toonseum.  Stay tuned over the coming months as we make additional announcements!  Any interested sponsors, artists, volunteers, or general questions, please visit our Contact page.

New Painting for Steel City Secret Cinema – ROBOCORPSE!!

Thanks to everyone that came out to Steel City Secret Cinema last night in Dormont. It was kinda like Alamo Drafthouse meets Gallery 1988. For those of you that couldn’t make it, here is the painting that I had showing. The theme for the show was any movie made in Pittsburgh. I couldn’t decide between Robocop and Day of the dead, and this is the result. It’s titled “RoboCorpse” or “When Murphy met Bub”. It hails as the grossest painting I’ve ever done. It just might be showing at House of The Dead in Lawrenceville so keep yer eyes peeled, son.

New Painting to be shown at Moxie Dada’s last show

Moxie Dada will be closing it’s doors this December. They are moving on from the four walls of the gallery to take an active part in the community. Here is a statement from their website:
We’d like to take the opportunity to thank our artists, the community and our neighbors at the firehouse studios for supporting our efforts during our stay in the Northside. It is with great enthusiasm and zest that we embark in our new direction, which includes: the development of commercial and residential art acquisition; and exploration of the virtual arena for art process, documentation, interviews and tours… Our long term goal is to provide\ global access to the Pittsburgh arts community following personal and regional developments. In short, providing a window to the world..
Coupling with the virtual development, moxie DaDA will continue to act as facilitators of public art projects. In our next phase, you can expect to see art that moves, engages and challenges.”


Their last show will be “Dia De Los Muertos Y La Resurreccion: the existencial crisis”

“This exhibition is going to explore death as a doorway to another life. It is going to represent the physical death of the gallery through a burial, and exhibition that reflects on these three questions: why do we exist; why are we here; and are we able to make a difference…?


Spring Salon Pics

I snapped a couple shots at Modern Formations’ Spring Salon Friday night. It was pretty packed there. I couldn’t move my arms at times. Good show none the less. There’s a lot of great work there, I only took pics of the back room of the show for some reason though. But it’ll be up till April 24th, so if you’re in the Pittsburgh area, you should check it.


Modern Formations "Spring Salon" group show

I will have a piece in Modern Formations’ annual “Spring Salon” opening Friday April 3rd at 7:00. It’s part of Unblurred, which is a monthly event on Penn Ave that is packed with art, music, and other stuff. The Spring Salon is a juried show that the public votes on. Pretty cool. The exhibition will be up from April 3-24. Modern Formations is located at 4919 Penn Ave in Pittsburgh. Stop by, see some art, walk aimlessly, see you there. Check modernformations.com for more info.
