DescriptionFeaturing a selection of vibrant tin quilts by Pittsburgh artist Kim Fox, "Handwork" recognizes the influence, the patterns and the landscapes of Pennsylvania. With a focus on organic themes of birds, bees, and the idea of home and place, Fox creates vintage tin and salvaged wood ‘quilts’ that combine images reminiscent of traditional quilt patterns and the ideals that they represent. Fox recognizes the history that comes with salvaging and reclaiming materials and prefers to work with found materials rather than mimicking the patina of old. This circle of decay and rebirth is a similar narrative to that of Pittsburgh, a city of dramatic beauty and constant change. This exhibit is opened daily through midnight and is free to the public.

CC’s BNY Mellon Satellite Gallery is located in the lobby of the Steel Plaza T-Station in downtown Pittsburgh.

The exhibition is presented in conjunction with Contemporary Craft’s biennial show, Transformation 10: Contemporary Works in Found Materials on view in the main gallery in The Strip.
