Gallery on Gazebo continues to be open on Saturdays and Sundays during April-Noon-5:00 PM.

Please wear your mask when visiting.

Installation of the Arches for the Piazza is underway! We are hoping the weather cooperates enough so the mighty structure can be complete. We will be telling you more about the design, the fabricator and contractor as the Project moves along. Meanwhile, we thank our funders and you, our audience, for supporting our outdoor events which allows the Piazza possibilities to continue growing. Meanwhile, you are welcome to be a SideWalk Superintendent.

Today’s feature is about the Art of the Installation. Artists champion this genre for its potential to tell a story, to surprise and engage viewers in new ways.

The first artist is Norman Ed, who is a Master of Reimagining. His materials are often recycled wood and metal, which find a way to convey a message or stimulate your imagination. His installation art is often indoors, but also outdoors, known as public art, and sometimes temporary, as artfully placed pieces of wood magically disappear; most likely for a higher purpose. His installation in the Gallery is Three Chairs. Mounted on top are three birdhouses in buildings you will recognize. Pay attention to his Statement as it is his world view of time and place. Thank you, Norman.

Three Chairs

Artist Statement: “I am living in this world, but I have always felt a little separated from this world. I care deeply about trying to understand the how and the Why and the Who.  As our world changes, I continue to hope that we can gain perspective on our current difficulties and disagreements.” -Norman Ed

$1,500

Tallest: 8’ 2”

The second artist is Asa Ana and his Stanza in Blue. What you see in the Gallery window is a part of a permanent art installation and living poem at ArtHouse6 in Johnstown. The installation encourages visitors to sit and contemplate, read poems by local Johnstown poets, who participated in the Poet Laureate of Johnstown project in 2019-2020. The artist asks visitors to write a stanza of a poem and leave it at the table.

Asa’s Art installations can be found around the world. Closer to home is his FLUX, the launching of art events throughout Pittsburgh neighborhoods with the art collective Ground Zero Action Network, now archived at the Heinz History Center. Ana is an advocate and researcher identifying public spaces for artists to perform or present their work. Currently, he is a PhD student studying how art and creativity activates deindustrialized communities. Where better than Johnstown?
