Opening This Weekend: Art Exhibits

Opening TONIGHT 7-9 at Fe Gallery in Lawrenceville, "Cocoons and Mobile Homes". Work by Scott Turri (see above). I love this artist's work.
Also opening TONIGHT "Tar Baby Jane and Doo-Wop: Everything Useful for Your Modern Household Mercantile", a new exhibit by Vanessa German at 709 Penn Gallery, 6-8. Next week the artist will be doing an improvisational spoken-word performances at 709 at the July 16 Downtown gallery crawl. I have never seen one of her performances, so I hope I can get a space there next week....I think it will be jammed.
TOMORROW: The actual opening of Merge Divides (a writer for this blog) and David Grim's exhibit at Panza Gallery in Millvale (last Saturdays opening was actually a pre-opening). Lots of great work here. From City Paper:

If you don't think anyone uses phone books anymore, talk to David Grim. The artist's new exhibit Book of Life centers on more than 400 ink drawings he's made on phone-book pages. The show ("inspired by a childhood escape from religious conversion") opens tonight at Millvale's Panza Gallery. It runs alongside "Merge Divide," featuring photographs from Grim's photo blog of images from Pittsburgh's geographic neighborhood, called Crown of Appalachia. The opening reception is tonight. BO 6-9 p.m. Show runs through July 31. 115 Sedgwick St., Millvale. Free. 412-821-0959 or

Also Tomorrow: Made in Lawrenceville at Be Gallery. This looks really interesting....
it is....just what it says. Includes paintings by yet another DP (ie Pgh. Ohio, Youngstown etc) blogger Susan Constanse, who does beautiful abstract paintings in oils.
On July 10th, be Galleries celebrates Lawrenceville's thriving artistic community with the opening of Made in Lawrenceville (You'd be Surprised to Know), an exhibition featuring a wide range of art, materials, handmade goods, and other works created exclusively in Lawrenceville. The show will also exhibit fashion and textile design, soap-making, clay, printmaking, as well as more traditional painting and sculpture. The materials portion of the show will be curated by Janice Donatelli of Artemis Environmental while the art portion will be curated by gallery owner Joy Borelli-Edwards. Come and experience the creative energy of Lawrenceville live and in person!
