CSA PGH and Small Mall
The exhibition highlighting two projects of Casey Droege Cultural Productions (CDCP), CSA PGH and Small Mall. CSA PGH, Community Supported Art Pittsburgh, is part of a national artist-driven movement that commissions artists to produce edition-able works that are grouped and sold to the public as art shares. Small Mall is a concept store and experimental retail space featuring art and design objects from makers in the Pittsburgh region. Both are part of CDCP’s work to create relevant and accessible art experiences connecting Pittsburgh’s creative community to a national arts conversation while encouraging the growth of local arts economies and building diverse arts audiences.
Brian is a ceramic artist from Philadelphia, PA who produces earthenware vessels that use a colorful drip glazing process to make his “drip pots”. Brian was a visiting Assistant professor of Ceramics at Penn State. Purchases from his case can be made during gallery hours.
Sustainable Studio Class (ART 297)
Works on view by a community of makers, involved in every aspect of the natural dyeing process from planting and harvesting to making and exhibiting creative and usable objects. Students have returned to the roots of the dye industry by learning about both ancient and modern production methods, combining art, science, and history with hands-on farm work. Beginning with growing the plans on the Penn State Student Farm and concluding with a semester’s research on dye-making, this exhibit is a selection of student work from throughout the class. This year’s crop included weld, woad, dyer’s coreopsis, marigolds, yarrow, black-eyed Susans, Japanese indigo, and Hopi Black Dye sunflowers.
