MF CraftFactory: December 15th, 2012

Join us in the MF Lobby on Saturday, December 15th for a special holiday shopping event: the MF CraftFactory! Come explore hand-made arts created by MF Staff members, Educators, and Volunteers. Only $5 admission to the museum!

KitschDitch by Sam Ditch
MF Shop Assistant
A field of flowers, a figure, some glitter and thread. People found in forgotten Kodachrome slides and yellowing photographs. The work of Sam Ditch deals with memory and the forgotten - both in subject matter and material. Second hand fabrics, threads, and embroidery hoops are central to this series, which began in the Fall of 2009. Other wares include colorful modern earrings and vintage-inspired greeting cards.

Sam Ditch is a Bellevue resident, and a 2009 graduate of Slippery Rock University. Sam has exhibited work in the Pittsburgh area and currently has work for sale at Wildcard. She’s a collector of all things kitsch and an avid folk music consumer. When Sam is not making art or searching the thrift stores for materials, she enjoys reading sci-fi paperbacks and spending time with her pet fish, houseplants and her bearded counterpart.

Rose Duggan
MF Volunteer

Rose Duggan is a painter living and working in Pittsburgh who wants to help people find beautiful artwork for their home or business. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Allegheny College and now shows her work throughout the area, most recently in the Sweetwater Center for the Arts “Belly of the Beast” exhibition.

Her non-objective works play with two-dimensional space while addressing formal concepts in painting. The result is an exploration of the material distilled to line, color and perspective. In addition to original paintings she sells prints and greeting cards made from photos of her work. Paintings on commission are available. Rose is looking to work with interior designers, business owners and individuals to find artwork that adds joy to lives.

Claudia Giannini
MF Grant Writer

Claudia Giannini received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from West Virginia University and studied art history and museum education at Penn State, graduating with a Masters in Education in 1981. She has worked in several museums, including the Smithsonian, the Birmingham Museum of Art and The Carnegie Museum of Art.

Claudia received her Master of Fine Arts degree from West Virginia University in 1999, with specialization in printmaking and photography. She has held residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and Virginia Center for Creative Arts and participated in a residency at Artists Image Resource in Pittsburgh sponsored by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation. Claudia exhibits widely and recently contributed 13 images to a book, Field Notes from Grief, with text by Judith Stitzel, published in 2012. Her work combines photographic and printmaking techniques, along with other media such as wax, collage, and handmade paper, to create images that explore our connection to the natural world. 

Vanessa Kettering
MF Volunteer

As one of the oldest art forms, ceramics has a versatility shared with few other mediums. Vanessa's work is a conversation in form vs. function. Form, shape and surface decoration are combined to create objects that walk the line between usable and sculpture. Themes include the abstracted vase, drawings etched in clay (a technique she developed herself) and the never ceasing desire to push high-fired stoneware to its physical limits. 

Vanessa Kettering creates her ceramic work at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, and is a member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh. A trained art educator, she works at an after school program in Regent Square and leads art classes for a variety of ages. She speaks some Italian and is studying Japanese language and culture.

War Admiral Press by Shannon Knepper
MF Graphic Designer
War Admiral Press specializes in small runs of hand-cranked paper goods, with a touch of olde Pittsburgh. Her Pittsburgh Misses You coasters can be seen about town and her new line of silkscreened holiday cards will be unveiled at the MF CraftFactory. Get yours for the holiday season! 

Nathan Lorenzo
MF Gallery Attendant, Visitor Services

Hi! My name is Nathan Lorenzo and with my art I strive to translate sounds into visuals. Although I typically work in digital mediums I will be offering several original drawings in ink, colored pencil, and graphite, for sale at the CraftFactory.

Please check out more of my work on my tumblr or feel free to contact me anytime for more information.


Maria Mangano
MF Visitor Services & Volunteer Coordinator

Maria Mangano makes art about nature, animals, arcana, and the dusty boxes of forgotten information found in the dark corners of libraries and museums. A native of Syracuse, New York, she moved to Pittsburgh to attend Carnegie Mellon University, where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2006.
Mangano's media range from intaglio to relief printing, works on paper, and site-specific installations, each work addressing the cultural systems that affect our understanding of the natural world. She has exhibited regionally at the Chautauqua Institute in Chautauqua, New York, and locally at the Brew House Space 101, 709 Penn Gallery, Fe Gallery, and Future Tenant Gallery.

Lindsay O’Leary
Former MF Communications & Digital Media Manager

Lindsay O’Leary is an artist and technologist living in Pittsburgh. She learned to blow glass at the Cleveland Institute of Art and moved to Pittsburgh in 2002 to create glass art at the Pittsburgh Glass Center. O'Leary is also the Web Content Editor at Carlow University and spends her weekends working on home remodeling projects. She is fascinated with art, tech, and architecture -- particularly the intersection of the three.

O'Leary's works have been exhibited at the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, the Brew House, PPG Wintergarden, and other galleries throughout Pittsburgh. She has also exhibited at UnSmoke Systems in nearby Braddock, Pennsylvania, and the Rochester Contemporary Art Center in Rochester, New York.

AC/VC by Derek Reese
MF Educator

Appalachians in Charge of Visual Culture is an artist group that focuses on crafts, wares, art objects, and small artwork on paper inspired by various aspects of Appalachian culture. AC/VC is a platform created for artists in the region who typically create artwork intended for the fine art market but who also have discovered an interest in creating less expensive, handmade merchandise that may bolster the artist's revenue and public awareness of their work.

AC/VC was created by artist Derek Reese as a way to showcase pieces of art from his body of work that are better suited for a vendor’s booth rather than a fine art gallery. He describes his merchandise as artifacts collected from, created for, or inspired by his large paintings, drawings, sculpture, installations, video, and performances. Derek’s studio is located at 131 7th Street in downtown Pittsburgh where he can be found creating artwork for his upcoming solo exhibition, titled WonderBred, which focuses on topics such as ecology, economy, and masculinity in Appalachia. To view Derek’s past artwork, biography, and endeavors past and present please visit his website.

Rosalind Santavicca
MF Educator

Rosalind’s watercolors find inspiration in many parts of the natural world from watching birds and gardening to walking on the beach.  Birds, animals, herbs in the garden, and walking on the beach feed her imagination.  Herbs to Watercolor, the current card creations, are made by applying paint to the herb plant and transferring the image to the cards.  The larger matted and framed works are created using various watercolor techniques. 

Rosalind works in her home-studio and has been painting for twenty years with a focus on watercolor.  She studied at the University of Pittsburgh, Phipps Conservatory, and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, as well as with the watercolor artists Marion Martino, Ann Payne, Frank Webb, Robert Bowden, and Don Andrews.  She has exhibited in various venues in the Pittsburgh area, most recently at Boulevard Gallery in Verona, Pennsylvania. 

Gina Tomsky
MF Shop Assistant
The work of Gina Tomsky deals mainly with encaustic. The ancient wax-based medium of encaustic paint is a molten bees wax mixed with resin and pigments.  She incorporates found objects, handmade paper, mixed media, printmaking, and oils to create each unique piece. When combining encaustic with other materials, and techniques, her artwork takes on a sophisticated presence which allows the artist’s own life and art experience to shine through.

Gina graduated from Carlow University in 2010 with a degree in Art Education and is certified in Art Therapy.  She currently resides in Lawrenceville with her partner and their pomeranian, Giuseppe. She enjoys drinking coffee, while shuffling her Pandora playlist, traveling, biking, and collecting salvaged objects to incorporate into new paintings. You can contact her via email:

Emily Walley
MF Educator, Occasional Installer

Emily Walley is originally from Wisconsin, where she attended the University of Wisconsin Stout, graduating with a degree in Studio Arts. Emily relocated to Pittsburgh after completing graduate studies at West Virginia University with her degree in Fine Art, Intermedia. She has exhibited installation, video, and sculpture work at Union Art Gallery (Milwaukee, WI), Salisbury Electronic Gallery (Salisbury, MD), and Assemble Gallery (Pittsburgh).

Currently, Emily is collaborating with Pittsburgh artist and musician David Bernabo on a series of video works. David and Emily are participating in upcoming group exhibitions at ModernFormations Gallery and Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. You can also view her work on Etsy.  

Ties That Bind by Ray Zarzeczny
MF Building Manager

“A little creative, a little weird, mildly outrageous and majorly scandalous.” With a creative mind and a desire to try and use materials from previous MF installations, Ray tries to create unique items.  Many of the MF installations end up in his "Art Yard".  Using these left-over installations, he creates new functional uses for them.  A telephone pole has become a unusual sculpture, and a bench.  Huge candle molds have become raised lettuce beds.  Wood from the Kennywood Racer has become a makeshift bridge through his fruit trees.  Port Authority bus seats have become patio seating and a bus grab rail has become a stair handrail.

Using rubber pond liner from a previous installation, Ray has created his rubber ties. These ties are all unique in their patterns and color. Other items include handcuff earrings and subversive cross stitch.

Fourteen musicians, sixteen days, one beautiful album

Back in the summer of 2010, our then Curator-in-Residence Mark Garry invited musicians from Berlin, Dublin, London, and Brussels to collaborate with some of Pittsburgh’s own virtuosos here at the Mattress Factory. The result was a two-week long residency during which time our fourth floor was transformed into a fully functioning recording studio, and music could often be heard traveling through the halls of our galleries. The residency culminated in a live performance of the music they had created together. And now, two years later, the full-length album of this collaboration is finally completed and available for download.

A Generous Act: A collaboration with music

Sample a track from A Generous Act

A Generous Act contains 14 tracks that call to mind bands like Air, The Books, and Kid A-era Radiohead, while somehow retaining a sense of the unique circumstances under which the album was created (one track is named “We Like Being In Kusama"). It really is something special. And the best part is, proceeds from the album go right back into MF’s exhibitions and programming so we can keep doing what we do.

A Generous Act

"This is the first time that a museum of contemporary art has supported a project like this, and I am so pleased that the recordings of 'A Generous Act' have managed to contain the amazing energy we all experienced during those two special weeks in Pittsburgh," shares Mark Garry, Curator-in-Residence for the project. "I really want to thank the directors, staff, and board of the Mattress Factory for supporting this project, and I especially want to thank all of the musicians – and Fabien Leseure, the sound engineer – for making the most of this unique and remarkable situation."

Young artists showcase their art on August 9th!

Fueled by chocolate cupcakes and the superb guidance of artist and teacher Jeremy Boyle, the students of this summer’s Factory 14s teen art intensive have been hard at work finishing up their installation in MF’s 3rd floor galleries. The as-of-yet untitled piece is an amalgam of futuristic landscapes, mylar-inspired optical illusions, eerie homemade audio recordings and maybe, just maybe, a robot made from circuit boards, recycled bicycle parts, and duct tape.

Then and Now: Michael Olijnyk

These two photos just gives us one more reason why we love Michael Olijnyk so much. He has been curator/co-director of the museum since it was founded in 1977 (he also exhibited here back in 1982).

Here he is when the museum just started more than thirty years ago.

Here he is today. We asked him to recreate the above iconic pose at a staff party on Friday. He happily obliged with fake mustache and all.

Record-breaking Urban Garden Party fundraiser!

It's been exactly one week since the Urban Garden Party: Alice at the Factory and we're still a bit in shock from the amazing support we have received. With your help, we raised a record-breaking $220,000 for the museum's unique artistic and education programs!

Many thanks to everyone who helped in any and every way – corporate sponsors, visual and performance artists, volunteers, musicians, food vendors, host committee, photographers, ticket-buyers, and our Chairs Susan and Scott Lammie – we couldn't have done it without you. We are humbled.

What people are saying:

 "...And so the story goes that more than 1,300 guests were falling down the rabbit hole and into the summer soiree that has become infamous for a history of bold swan dives into edgy, eye-popping territory." 

"The Mattress Factory's Urban Garden Party is held each year in the rugged outdoor space, and regulars (of which there are quite a few!) know to wear shoes that can handle the terrain. That doesn't preclude going all out in the costume department, and the "Alice at the Factory" theme inspired many mad hatters to don gay apparel."

"The Mattress Factory’s Urban Garden Party should be on your to-do list for next year. Alice At The Factory was a perfect summer party, celebrating quirkiness and art, and supporting an organization that is one of Pittsburgh’s gems. We had a blast!!"

"The MF's Urban Garden Party was over-the-top magical, tasty and eccentric, full of twirly-whirly dancing, and stuffing oneself silly!"
 -Anna Moore, Table Magazine

Curiouser and curiouser!

What people were photographing:

We are indebted to the fantastic photographers who really capture the soul and the depth of this one night!

What do we want? RAINBOW WORLD! When do we want it? NOW!

What would you do if someone took away something you loved?  Would you demand its swift return?  Would you protest?  Would you take to the streets?

That’s exactly what the kids at MF’s Community ArtLab did yesterday when their beloved “rainbow world” (the colorful installation currently in our lobby) got tied up in knots and no longer hung down to the floor to flow freely. With a little help from ArtLab instructors Kevin Clancy and David Pohl, the kids decided to take matters into their own hands. Their list of demands was simple:  What did they want? RAINBOW WORLD!  When did they want it? NOW!

So they made some signs, grabbed some instruments, and set out onto Sampsonia Way to make some noise.

Some of our friends from Lungs Face Feet stopped by to help.

Each summer, MF’s Community ArtLab brings artists and educators together with local youth for a summer day camp experience that inspires creativity and initiates conversations about the community. With themes like “The Power of Play” and “Super Hero Snacktime,” each session of Community ArtLab gives kids a chance to explore artistic and practical ways to improve the places we live.

The theme of this week’s workshop is “Utopia.” Students have been visiting nearby gardens, pondering geodesic domes, and learning how to become the change they wish to see in the world. It’s fitting then, that they returned to the museum yesterday to find that sometimes dreaming big really does pay off–rainbow world was back!

This summer's Community ArtLab workshops are currently full, but you can click here to learn more about them or sign up for the waiting list.

The 2012 Community Garden Party is Almost Here!

Things are getting curiouser and curiouser here at MF with preparations for the 2012 Community Garden Party in full swing and only two weeks to go before Alice and her friends turn the garden into a magical place where everyone gets the chance to be a Mad Hatter, a hula hooper, and a silk screen artist. Your dreams will literally materialize in front of your eyes when artist Paul Nosa sews them onto fabric using a sustainably powered sewing machine, or when you order your first taco from the long-awaited PGH Taco Truck!

Silk Screening with AIR at last year's Community Garden Party

Partygoers can also look forward to entertainment from emcees Tom Sarver and Mike Cuccaro of the Puppet Happening, live music from local bands like the North Side Urban Pathways Sounds of Steel, and an introduction into the world of garden arts with artist Rose Clancy. The galleries will be open too so don’t forget to check out the awesome exhibitions currently on display.

Last year's hula hoop champion

This annual party is our way of saying thanks to the community for helping us facilitate another year of amazing art created by amazing artists. And as usual, it’s free and family friendly with lots of games, activities, and entertainment for everyone. None of it would be possible without the community members who support us, and for that we think you deserve a chance to experience wonderland, at least for a day.

2012 Urban Garden Party: Alice at the Factory countdown!

Hard to believe, but our annual fundraiser, the Urban Garden Party, is just six weeks away! Things are really heating up for another fabulous event full of great food & drink, fresh sounds from multiple music performers from near (Pittsburgh) and far (NYC and Oregon), and a few fantastic curiosities. Follow this image during the next few weeks for a little surprise – we'll reveal a piece of the puzzle every other day.

UPDATE 5/18/12: The Queen of Hearts is none other than our fearless leader, founder and Co-Director Barbara Luderowski!

Tickets have sold out the last two years and we're on pace to sell out even sooner, so purchase your tickets today and enjoy a great party while supporting a great museum.

Paul Nosa: Sewing People's Imagination

A few days ago we received a request from Paul Nosa to hang out here at the museum and "sew people's imagination." We said yes.

Watch this video for some AMAZING backwards writing with thread.

Paul Nosa: sewing people's imagination. "Unexpected visitor at the tea party in the sky."
Paul is a sewing artist from Tucson, Arizona. He draws people's imagination with a sewing machine powered by a solar panel and a bicycle electric generator. He's currently on a sewing tour across America facilitating people's creativity and showing them how to make their own alternative energy sources.

Paul Nosa: sewing your dreams five words [or less] at a time. "Swimming through the day."
If you can think of a scenario in five words or less, he will sew it on the spot using a bicycle-powered sewing machine. When he isn't using his bicycle, he has some photovoltaic panels to juice up a battery which he can connect to his sewing machine on his distinctively outer space looking "Solar Sewing Rover." You can purchase your custom patch from him and walk away with a one-of-a-kind piece of art and feel great knowing you're supporting this talented artist's trek across the continent. We also have a few cool limited edition Paul Nosa MF totes available in the MF Shop.

Who: Paul Nosa
What: Sewing Artist from Tuscon is stopping by the Mattress Factory during his U.S. tour on his way from New York City to Los Angeles. 
This event is sponsored by the MF Shop.

ArtLab: Projection Perception

This Saturday’s ArtLab will showcase Factory Installed artist Pablo Valbuena's video projection, Para-Site [mattress factory]. Pablo uses light and projection on a static wall to emphasize the preexisting architecture in the Museum. In doing so, he lays out the blueprint for an animated virtual space. At different times throughout his installation, it appears as if windows are folding and the space reflected by mirrors. None of these things physical happen; they’re all amazing optical illusions. Pablo explains his work as the "dissolution of the limit between real and perceived."

Pablo Valbuena's mind-bending installation, Para-Site [mattress factory]

This week’s featured ArtLab workshop leader is local installation artist and Mattress Factory Educator, Esti Piels. Esti will provide a video that the museum visitor will collaboratively create the context by drafting or illustrating a physical setting for the projection. Each visitor will be asked to view the video first and then create a composition or scene for the narrative to occur. This temporary "scenario" will be living for the duration of the brief projection while being video documented by Esti. She will then piece together each documented scene to create a feature length video collaboration. The finished product will be available on this blog in the near future.

Join Esti this Saturday and add your creative piece to this video collaboration!

ArtLab: Come and FIND where you FIT IN!

Hi, Shannon the Education Programs Coordinator here. I’ve often proudly described the Mattress Factory as the “Island of Misfit Toys.” We love the diversity within our community of dedicated art-lovers and enthusiasts who frequent the Museum. This weekend we would like you to have a chance to contribute a piece of yourself to one of our ArtLab installations. Tomorrow we will be hosting a non-traditional, nonsectarian holiday ovule hunt (okay, okay, you can call it an art Easter egg hunt if you must).

Tomorrow from 1:00-4:00pm, visitors will be invited to search the galleries for items to be added to a collective installation. You may be surprised by what you find! We want the finished result to tell an interesting Mattress Factory tale of who we all are together.
These will be hidden throughout the Museum tomorrow – find one and bring it back to the lobby to help us complete the puzzle!

This project is a nod to Ling He's installation Wish exchange dandelion in our new exhibition "Gestures: Intimate Friction" over at our 1414 Monterey galleries. Ling says, "My wish to explore generosity is dispersed through 99 puzzle pieces traveling in balloon style that would spirit innocent spotters to return them, with drawings on their backs, to the gallery. Neither the puzzle, nor the room, has a right answer – it is defined with how much each participant would like to give."

 These are the puzzle pieces to Ling's installation Wish exchange dandelion which are somewhere out there in the North Side (if you find one, bring it back to the MF for free admission!)

At the bottom of each of these balloons is one of those clear puzzle pieces from Ling's Wish exchange dandelion. Museum visitors released these puzzle pieces and balloons during the exhibition opening on Friday, March 30th

In the spirit of Ling's community-building installation with all of those lovely red balloons, we'd love to see you tomorrow to locate and take these little pink coin machine capsules scattered around the galleries and help complete the installation!
