Eastside Gallery will host opening reception for "Interaction Reaction" exhibit
Eastside Gallery in Forest Hills will hold an opening reception this weekend for its latest exhibit, “Interaction Reaction,” featuring the work of local artists LaVerne Kemp, Sandra Moore and William D. Wade.
The reception will be Sunday, Jan. 28, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the gallery, 4240 Greensburg Pike in Forest Hills.
Kemp's work has been exhibited at tha Carroll Harris Simms National Black Art Competition and Exhibition in Dallas, as well as the African American Art Exhibition at Actors Theater in Louisville, Ky. She has taught art for more than two decades through the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Visit her website at TheWarpedWeaver.blogspot.com .
Sandra Moore is a former recipient of the Three Rivers Arts Festival's Emerging Artist Award (2006). Her work fuses horsehair raku and gold into unique ceramic pieces.
“The pieces are thrown, burnished, bisque, gold and horsehair fired,” Moore writes on her website, FineArtBySandra.com . “The horsehair firing involves laying the horsehair on the hot piece as if creating a black and white line painting. I follow the gold lines as cues and create line, smoke, luminous white and iridescent stone-like artifacts.”
William D. Wade's section will showcase several entries in his photography series.
“I became a photographer at first to document my world and to become aware of people's lives, by simply meeting them and telling their story,” Wade said.
The reception is free and open to the public. There will be light appetizers and beverages served. The exhibit will continue through March 11.
