OPENING RECEPTION: “Anecdotal Evidence” works by Ramon Riley

Join us for the opening reception of  “Anecdotal Evidence” a solo exhibition of work by Pittsburgh artist and educator Ramon Riley.

Riley, a native of Pittsburgh, earned a Masters of Art Degree at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2013, with a concentration in painting. A career art teacher at Pine-Richland High School for over 22 years, Riley’s belief in a strong art education in public schools stems from his own testimonial.

“I use imagery and memory to create a dialogue with the audience. For me as the artist, it feels like I am tracing a path back to the slaves and immigrants in search of a better life. My work reflects my great appreciation and awareness for how my journey empowers me.”

The reception will begin with an open gallery, where guests can view the work and chat with the artist. At 6:45pm we’ll be holding a brief artists talk with Q&A followed after.

 

Masks will be required for the opening and artists talk.

Light refreshments will be provided.
