Call and Response

A night of musical and artistic collaboration, with performances by flutist Cassandra Eisenreich and the artwork of painter Betsy Marsch. Eisenreich will perform works for solo flute while Marsch creates paintings inspired by the music. The “Call and Response” will shift as guest percussionist Jeff Vaughn joins Eisenreich in the collaboration and the two improvise music based on the artistic creation of Marsch’s painting. Tickets are available online and at the door $6 per person. Artwork created at the event will be for sale at the end of the program during a time of refreshment and conversation.

NEW Olde Town Mural!

The Grove City ArtWorks is thrilled to announce that Olde Town is on it’s way to having another mural! Grove City native Jason Schell will be painting an ode to locomotives. For more than a century, locomotive have been the center of Grove City’s economy. From the Bessemer Gas Engine Company in the 1800’s to General Electric today, the town has played a major role in the history of the locomotive. Today, General Electric in Grove City manufactures the greenest locomotive engines in the world. While the mural will feature a modern GE locomotive, it will also pay homage to Grove City’s history, with the original passenger train station in the background. The roughly 38′ x 8′ mural will be placed on the back of PNC bank next summer.

Artist Jason Schell currently lives in Mexico City, where he crafted his first mural for their public transit system. This will be his first mural in the states, and he’s thrilled to have it be in his hometown.  One of his favorite childhood memories is standing at the tracks and watching the trains go by.

HOW TO DONATE:

The project has started thanks to a generous donation from General Electric. But we still need more! All donations are tax deductible. Please make your checks out to “Grove City Arts” and put “mural” in the memo line.

2016_February_MikeWeber_poster

First Friday!

Grove City Artworks welcomes Mike Weber to the Wendell August Gallery for our February show!

Join us Friday, February 5 from 7-9pm as we open Mike’s exhibition.

From Mike’s Website:

Well to start, my name is Mike. I’m currently living in western Pennsylvania, originally from New Jersey. Dabbling in different kinds of art is something I’ve been doing for a while but I was never too serious about anything in particular. I’ve had an interest and appreciation for photography but it seemed like something far off that I would never take the time to get into. I started an Instagram account a few years back taking pictures with my iPhone and more and more friends said I should consider trying out photography. So in March 2014 I got my first camera and gave it a shot. I’ve been loving it ever since and continue to push my creativity every chance I get.

I started I Am Mike Weber because this is who I am and this is what I see. I love giving people the opportunity to enjoy what might be closer than they think. It encourages people to go find and explore the beautiful things that are out there. I really believe art can be an awesome way to bring life to people and bring people to life. It does for me – when I see potential for an amazing shot, I get so excited. It’s one of the best and most life giving things I do. I think it’s important to stop and realize where you are and the beauty that surrounds you..no matter where you are. You don’t have to go far.

See you then!

First Friday!

New art for January!

Join us on First Friday, January 8th 2016 from 7-9pm to welcome the art of Brett Mason to the Artworks!

 

Artist’s Statement and Bio from Brett’s Website:

I am a creator,thinker,father, and seeker of the unknown.  I draw,paint,doodle,humor,strum…I go where inspiration leads while trying to remain grounded to the positive and energizing. This has lead me meandering the beaches of California to the Outer banks of North Carolina selling works of art,on stage in New York’s east village singing songs, and by other means of energy, into the Boston Marathon. I try to set a good example and inspire everyone to do what they love.

I attended Clarion University as an art major with a concentration in oil painting. Following after was a period of pursuing other passions until I discovered watercolors years later. I started working on the spot which opened up a huge door for me in terms of inspiration and therefore productivity. I let my subconscious guide so much of what I do. So often I start something with enough vigor, that I barely get paint on my palette before work begins. The best things always seem to happen when there’s that kind of connection. When the focus is right I aim for something more detailed. Other times I let things happen on their own and try to stop at that sweet spot of almost desperate minimalism. I live in Pittsburgh with my wife, our three boys, and Buzz, our dog.
