NATURAL DISTORTIONS
La Vie hosts show for the NCECA Invitational

February 20, 2008- Pittsburgh- La Vie welcomes “Natural Distortions”, curated by Merrie Wright and part of the 2008 National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, a ceramics conference that will attract thousands of people to Pittsburgh. A soft opening will coincide with the monthly Final Fridays on Butler Street when local businesses in Lower Lawrenceville stay open late, offering drinks, food, music and discounts.

Mark Burleson, Kim Greene, Timothy VanBeke and Merrie Wright are ceramic artists from various parts of the country. Aesthetically delightful, their work examines organic forms and contemporary iconography. Greene’s ceramic balloons float about the space, while Wright’s whimsical animals are photographed in urban spaces, and the scientific beauty of Van Beke’s glossy ceramic panels charmingly challenge your concept of ceramic art.

La Vie will host a closing reception for “Natural Distortions” on March 22, 2008, during the NCECA conference. The exhibition will be accessible at Stop 3 on the Strip District Bus Route on Wednesday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., Thu- Sat 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., with a reception on March 22, from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m. Tickets for the shuttle cost $20 and will provide transportation between galleries.

La Vie consistently offers fine art by local artists in carefully selected shows every 45 to 60 days. Bronwyn Loughren and Thommy Conroy use the gallery as a studio, providing graphic design services, hand-made cards and invitations, floral arrangements and specialty event planning. The shop purveys prints, jewelry, pottery, sculpture and publications. La Vie exclusively carries hand-painted clothing by Mary Margaret Stewart of Iman B, formerly located on Ellsworth Street in Shadyside, as well as signature t-shirts by Ladyboy and Budai. La Vie is open Wednesday thru Saturday 12 – 6, Sunday 12 – 3 and conveniently by appointment.

Current and past shows as well as everything featured at La Vie can be seen at www.laviepittsburgh.com.

MIXED UP WEDNESDAYS
Calendar: Local Calendar

19 Mar 2008
"Mixed up Wednesdays" takes place each Wednesday night at Lava Lounge located at 2204 East Carson Street on Pittsburgh's South Side. Resident DJ Ian Friend and special guests Adammmm and Sasqautch of MFPA fame spin classic and current underground dance music, old skool hip hop, 80's new wave and much more. The event runs from 10p.m. to 2a.m. with no cover, drink specials and 50 wings from the Double Wide Grill.
It's hard not get into the groove with the likes of Brazil's own CSS & Bonde Do Role blasting through the speakers. The dj's could at that point twist and turn you directly to france by spinning some of their current underground craze by the likes of Yelle, Ca$hmere or SebastiAn.
It's hard to know where else they will take you with the every growing collection of music and tracks that were purchased and debuted mere hours before the start of the event. One thing is for sure: Mixed Up Wednesdays is not for the faint heart but the party animals.

Starring Pittsburgh’s own Tim Hartman and Marcus Stevens. Adult Content
