In A Few Objects - On a Theme of Contradiction, which opens this Friday evening at 709 Penn Gallery, artist Adam Welch presents a range of works involving sculpture, painting and drawing composed with the artist’s reoccurring themes of paradox, solipsism, and contradiction. These pieces make play of theoretical information and implicit contradictions in the constructs developed to better understand our existence.
Welch has exhibited in juried group and solo shows as well as in alternative and experimental spaces since 1998. He is the 2009 Individual Artists Fellowship in Instillation/Sculpture recipient from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and was awarded the 2008 Emerging Artist of the Year by the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. His work has been shown regionally and internationally. This is his first solo exhibit in Pittsburgh’s Cultural District.
Artist's Reception on Friday, January 8th from 6-9 pm
January 8 - February 19, 2010
