Carnegie Mellon's Regina Gouger Miller Gallery Hosts Associated Artists of Pittsburgh's 94th Annual Exhibition

PITTSBURGH — The Regina Gouger Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University will host the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh (AAP) 94th Annual Exhibition from July 9 through August 1, 2004. An opening reception will be held Friday, July 9, from 6 - 9 p.m. with an awards presentation at 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.

AAP is the only visual arts organization in the country to organize an annual exhibition in a major museum. This year, the AAP will present the exhibition in the Regina Gouger Miller Gallery for the first time.

The juror for this year's exhibition is Renee Stout (A'80), an artist/lecturer who lives in Washington, D.C. She was born in Junction City, Kansas, and raised in Pittsburgh. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally. She has won the D.C. Mayor's Art Award for Excellence in an Artistic Discipline; the Pollock Krasner Foundation Award; a residency at the McColl Center for Visual Art, Charlotte, North Carolina. Stout has participated in many panel participations in Washington, D.C., New York and Philadelphia.

"As a student attending Carnegie Mellon, I can remember eagerly awaiting the annual openings of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Exhibition at the Carnegie Museum. I knew that the art I would see on the great white walls of that prestigious institution represented the best of Pittsburgh and I looked to those artists to help set a standard that I could aspire to as a young artist," Stout said.

"I had no way of knowing then that some things in life come full circle and that one day I would be invited by the Associated Artists to jury an exhibition based on my own reputation as an artist. I felt truly honored," she said.

This year's annual includes 155 works by 102 artists, selected from more than 525 works entered. As usual, this year's show includes sculptures, paintings, drawings, photographs, prints and installations in a variety of styles representing some of the region's finest artists.

Founded in 1910 and incorporated in 1930, the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh is one of the oldest continuously exhibiting visual arts organizations in the country. AAP is a nonprofit, artist-run organization whose mission is to support regional artists through contemporary visual arts exhibitions and educational outreach programs that contribute to the cultural vitality of the community. Associated Artists of Pittsburgh is located at 937 Liberty Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh.

The Regina Gouger Miller Gallery is located at 5000 Forbes Avenue in Oakland, and parking is available off Forbes Avenue in the East Campus parking garage on the Carnegie Mellon campus. The gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information on the exhibition contact Jenny Strayer, gallery director, at 412-268-3877.
