The Bridgeville Public Library is taking a huge stride toward bringing the arts to the Bridgeville area.

An exhibition at the library opens Friday and will feature three local artists, each with his own unique forms and techniques.

“One of the objectives of those on the board of trustees and advisory board is to bring art to the library,” said Joyce Heinrich, library fundraising coordinator. “We've done that so far with our concert series, and this is the next step in meeting that objective.”

The exhibit will feature the traditional frontier art of Andrew Knez Jr. and the black-and-white photography of Tim Anderson. Justin Celedonia, who does dot art, also is on the bill.

Bridgeville historian John Oyler, who gives frequent talks at the library, has used Knez's art in his seminars and introduced his work to Heinrich.

“He seemed like a natural fit since we've already been exposed to his work,” she said.

Heinrich said she discovered Anderson through South Fayette Public Library, where his work has previously been on display.

Anderson uses film and chemical development rather than digital cameras and has been involved in photography for nearly 40 years – since he was a photographer at his high school newspaper.

He said he is drawn to the product he produces.

“I like the quality that I get – the uniqueness of the black-and-white image,” he said.

The exhibit will run from today, Thursday, to Sept. 13, with a grand opening event at 6 p.m. Friday.

Oyler will present a historical discussion of Knez's work at 7 p.m. today. Knez's paintings depict daily life from the period of 1750 to 1830. The grand opening begins at 6 p.m. with wine, hors d'oeuvres and music. The cost is $10.
