Artini: Art Shaken, Not Stirred


Artini is the first of several events planned by Passports: Art of Diversity. The organizers, Christine Bethea, Brenda Brown and Leslie Ansley, have brought together a wide range of artists for the exhibit. As with most exhibits on Penn Avenue, the time that you can see the work is limited to just the one evening, so a review of the show is not really an option. Since the exhibit is so short, I thought it was important to put it out there early.

Passports has, thankfully, provided a list of artists that will be in the exhibit --

Kate Dambach
LaVerne Kemp
Laura McLaughlin
Bill Cousins
Ruth Ward
Sandy Simon
Bob Johnson
Tom Panei

I am sure that, if you are a Pittsburgh resident, you recognize quite a few artists on the list. The show promises to present a diversity of mediums, including representations from assemblage through painting. Along with the usual crew for first Friday Unblurred events, Art Cubed will...

Kick-start your summer June 6th & 7th with Art Cubed, a weekend-long celebration of the art, music and culture of three flourishing East End neighborhoods. The festivities begin Friday night with Unblurred in the Penn Avenue Arts District. Saturday features events in all three neighborhoods, highlighted by Proud Hood Happenings in East Liberty and Lawrenceville's all-day Sidewalk Sale. Don't miss this two-day showcase of the best Pittsburgh has to offer!

You can find more information about the event, along with a map and schedule, here.
