Artist Talks at Center for the Arts



As usual, there are a ton of artists showing work right now at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Starting tonight, the artists and artist teams represented in the ten exhibits will be showing up to discuss their work.

Tonight’s first set of talkers include Stephen Chalmers, whose grittily lyrical photos of people with no fixed abode — from “snowbirds” to off-the-gridders — make up his exhibit Transience. Chalmers teaches at Youngstown State University. Here's a sample of his work:


Also speaking tonight are Lizzy De Vita, about her video-based installation Homographies, and Pitt assistant professor Lenore D. Thomas, about Somewhere in Between, her wall-installation with projected imagery.

Future talks in the series are scheduled for March 14 (with artists Jonathan Chamberlain, David Montano and William McAllister) and March 30 (featuring eight artists with work at the PCA).

All the talks, including tonight’s are at 6 p.m. The PCA is located at 6300 Fifth Ave., in Shadyside. Admission is $3-5.
