How are you INSPIRED? What are the experiences / relationships / subjects / objects / artists / styles / or ?? that inspire your work as a fiber artist? This exhibit will be a unique opportunity to share our work, while honoring the influences that motivate our creative practice. In addition to their original work, participating artists will be invited to contribute material – stories, images, or online reference – to introduce their inspirations. Through sharing these sources of inspiration, we may recognize ourselves as connected to a creative legacy greater than any individual work of art.

Consider blue. Is it a color, a state of mind, or does it represent a place and time in history for you? We live on a blue planet; blue represents national and political identity; it symbolizes trust, loyalty, confidence and the heavens; blue is associated with harmony but also represents the human emotion of sadness and melancholy. How do you relate? Where is blue represented in your life?

The PCA Guild Council and Guild Exhibition Committee invite Guild artists to exhibit their current work in THE NEW COLLECTIVE 2016. Pittsburgh Center for the Arts was founded in 1945 by a group of artists in an entrepreneurial partnership with civic leaders. The opening of the Center was intrinsically linked to the city’s first Renaissance and marked the coming of age of the artistic heart of industrial Pittsburgh. The Guilds of the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts continue to flourish and are a strong part of the Pittsburgh art community.
