In spring 2013 the students of Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild curated this exhibition in a class called Curating and Installing Exhibitions. They managed the entire process from developing a theme, creating a Call for Artists, managing submissions and designing an online exhibition of the submitted images. Visit www.mcgonlineexhibit.com

During the winter of 2013, students at Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild took part in an intensive after-school photography course. Using traditional darkroom processes, they printed on a variety of photographic media, including archival fiber based paper.
The exhibit runs April 22, 2013 – May 31, 2013 at the Susan Zubik Welcome Center at Catholic Charities, 212 Ninth Street in downtown Pittsburgh, PA.
An opening reception will be hosted on Friday, April 26, 2013, 5:30-9pm in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust Gallery Crawl.
The second annual MCG Invitational continues the tradition of serving Pittsburgh area high-school students. By providing this opportunity, the MCG Invitational will highlight talent, reward achievement, and encourage hope among those who might otherwise be overlooked.
The MCG Invitational seeks to recognize excellence and extol achievement demonstrated by youth in urban and economically disadvantaged communities. By heralding these values, this exhibition will reward meritorious students with cash awards, prizes and post-secondary education scholarships.
Barbara Sorensen is known for monumental sculptural installations that draw on geological formations and classical elements, but recently turned her energies to large-scale environmental vessels constructed of metals and resins, as well as new, experimental mixed-media prints and two-dimensional works. Often interconnected and chromatically bold, the new series emerge from and focus on her sense of the relationships between human and landscape.
Barbara Sorensen, Topographies runs January 22 – March 15, 2013
