As I have promised, I am going to supply you with some more information about the 13th Annual Shadyside… The Art Festival on Walnut Street that will be held this weekend (August 28th & 29th). I am also going to include info. about several artists who will be joining us, as well. Now, I am going to introduce to you our first artist…
Brian Beckenheimer! Brian creates beautiful pottery by using a wheel and throwing clay onto it. He uses special glaze effects to achieve the beautiful color on his pieces of art work.
Our second artist that I would like to introduce to you is…
Scott Davidson! Scott is a very talented photographer. This photograph in the picture above is called “Cypress”. He used black and white infrared to make this specific photograph look the way it does. It is stunning!
Our third artist I would like to introduce is…
Daina Dickens! As you can see from the picture above, Daina is a very gifted and accomplished jeweler. Her specialty is creating handmade glass beaded jewelry. She uses a 3-dimensional bead weaving technique that she developed. As you can see, her jewelry is lovely!
Our fourth and final artist that I would like to share with you is…
Julie Keaten-Reed! She considers her artwork unconventional because it is a hybrid of Western and Asian traditions. Here is a quote from Julie’s artist statement on her web page: “The conflicting impulses of following the Asian art aesthetic which I admire so much and the desire to explore themes from my Western art heritage led to the blend of styles and techniques I use today.” Her artwork will definitely add uniqueness to Shadyside. If you would like to read more about Julie and see her artwork, you can click HERE.
We cannot wait to see all of our artists this weekend in Pittsburgh, PA.!
