New public Art on the Walls exhibit opens in Dormont

The Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council is proud to announce a new Art on the Walls exhibit, featuring the work of six regional artists inside the Dormont Municipal Center.

From Wavy Wednesday’s Barbie-themed pop art confronting social, racial, and gender justice to Paige Kleinfelder’s oil paintings capturing a visual nostalgia of signs and structures, this new exhibit features an exciting array of more than 30 pieces of artwork.

The exhibition, on view now and continuing through February 2024, also includes the work of Pittsburgh-based artists Giovanna Ferrari, John Hinderliter, Jeannie McGuire, and Anne M. Trimble.

An artists reception for the exhibit – featuring mocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and the opportunity to meet the artists – will be open to the public from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, October 19. More information can be found here: Facebook Event page

All artwork displayed through Art on the Walls is also available for sale, with artists receiving 80% of each purchase.

Dormont’s Art on the Walls exhibit is open to the public during regular business hours of 8 a.m.-8:30 p.m. on Mondays, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, and 8:30 a.m.-Noon on Fridays.

Art on the Walls, which launched in 2010 and has since garnered more than $65,000 in art sales, is a professional development program of the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council that brings the work of regional artists to unconventional spaces throughout the Greater Pittsburgh region. In addition to Dormont, Art on the Walls also has exhibits in the lobby of Eleven Stanwix, as well as the offices of both the Allegheny Conference and Turner Construction.

Sponsored by Eat’n Park, Dormont’s Art on the Walls exhibit is a partnership between the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council, The Borough of Dormont, and Dormont Arts.
