The 3rd Annual ARTday with PSA is Saturday June 29, 2013 from 10-4. The event is FREE to the public.
This art event will be in the Mine Factory, a space on the 2nd floor, 201 North Braddock Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15208 in Homewood. It is just north of Forbes Ave, across from the East End Food Co-op. The favored entrance to the event from Meade St. is pictured above and it is across the street from East End Co-op, Pittsburgh’s only remaining old style bulk food health food store, an oldie but a goody. A freight elevator entry is also available at back parking lot. ARTday with PSA will be featured in City Paper on Thursday June 27 in Visual Arts listings. Come on over to enjoy the event and see the great new art space in Pittsburgh!
ARTday with PSA was created to give tribute to, and offer appreciation for, the diverse and extraordinary talent of Pittsburgh Society of Artists and their creativity. It is a time to provide enjoyment to members, friends and the public and to celebrate the joy and meaning that art brings to the world. See hands-on demonstrations by PSA artists. Our musical members will also be sharing their performing talents.
Various media will be on display, including prints, paintings, drawings, fiber, jewelry, glass, sculpture and more. All works will be for sale. Art may be purchased directly from the artist. The event encourages all members to be actively involved by exhibiting artwork and engaging in on-site arts activities. Artist members of PSA will be selling small works as well.
This recently developed event space called the Mine Factory, was home to the June 15 opening of the space with an exciting contemporary art show and open studio/ POTLUCK . The Mine Factory space was developed by (PSA member) Mia Tarducci Henry & fellow artist Merissa Lombardo… with their own hands patching and painting the walls, installing gallery lighting and building substantial movable partitions on wheels which allow for variability in dividing the space and for hanging art on. This was the flier for their opening party on June 15.
You can get a last look at their great show before it comes down on Thursday night June 27, 2013 from 7pm-10pm. During the opening party for Mia and Merissa’s event space on June 15th, many of the artist studios throughout the building on 2nd, 3rd and 6th floors were open. A few will be available to the public during ARTday with PSA on Saturday, June 29 including Mia Tarducci Henry’s studio as well as Stunden Studios. PSA is hearing from others now. The expectation is that some other studios will be open to the public during this event.
