Carnegie Mellon's Regina Gouger Miller Gallery Features a Century of Talented Arts Alumni in Group Show, January 20

PITTSBURGH—As part of Carnegie Mellon University's College of Fine Arts (CFA) Centennial Celebration, the Regina Gouger Miller Gallery will host "100% Centennial," a group show of alumni work curated to feature the talent and accomplishments of a century of Carnegie Mellon artists. "100% Centennial" will open on Friday, Jan. 20, 2006, and run through March 5. Works by alumni across all five of the college's schools—art, music, architecture, design and drama—will be displayed throughout the gallery's three floors. An opening reception will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Jan. 20.

The third floor will feature "100% Centennial: Collecting CFA." This exhibit will focus on works by prominent alumni artists from the collections of The Butler Institute of American Art, the Carnegie Museum of Art, The Andy Warhol Museum, Milton and Sheila Fine, Marshall and Wallace Katz, and other private collections.

The second floor will host "100% Centennial: Wall-to-Wall CFA," an energetic and inclusive salon-style installation of digitally documented and physical works encompassing the diversity of CFA graduates.

The ground floor will welcome visitors with "100% Centennial: Representing CFA." This exhibit will highlight documented static and/or time-based art forms through projections, video kiosks, headphones and monitors.

Among alumni in the exhibit who have made a significant impact in the visual arts are Andy Warhol (pioneer of pop art), Mel Bochner (pioneer of conceptual art), feminist art luminaries Joyce Kozloff and Deborah Kass, prominent figurative painters Philip Pearlstein and John Currin, and others including Dara Birnbaum of New York City, Renee Stout of Washington, D.C., Katherine Kuharic of St. Louis and Katie Grinnan, Raymond Saunders and James Welling of California.

The exhibit will also feature public monuments and commissions by artists like Jonathan Borofsky and Raymond Kaskey, who have distinguished the landscapes of cities around the world. Also included are the works of notable artist professors, such as Harvey Breverman of the University of Buffalo; Philip Morsberger, formerly of the University of Oxford and now emeritus at Augusta State University (Ga.); the late Ken Ferguson, emeritus at Kansas City Art Institute; and Robert Lepper, who taught several of the prominent artists at Carnegie Mellon.

The Regina Gouger Miller Gallery is located at 5000 Forbes Avenue in Oakland and is open from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Parking is available off Forbes Avenue in the East Campus parking garage on the Carnegie Mellon campus.
