Art All Over Local Art Wilkinsburg Pittsburgh

The WCDC is working with Casey Droege Cultural Productions to transform the workshop space in our newly renovated headquarters located in the historic Lohr Building into a gallery-level display space for local, Wilkinsburg artists. The Art All Over program was launched in 2020 A partnership with the Sleeping Octopus Artist Initiative (SOAI). The initiative will celebrate and promote the many accomplished artists who live in the Wilkinsburg area.

In order to respect social distancing, the WCDC is embracing technology and social media to allow the public to enjoy local art in new ways. From the comfort of your home you can experience the exhibits through photos and a virtual artist talks and tours online. You can also visit the show in person with the artist

Artist statement:
My work examines the vulnerability of transitions through sculptural tapestry. I intuitively create organic shapes and structures using organic materials such as wool, cotton, and linen. Inspired by intersecting outlines of buildings throughout the city and the experimental prose styles of Lydia Davis and Clarice Lispector, I hope to challenge the traditional idea of tapestry.

Megan Adgate is a fiber artist living and working in Wilkinsburg, PA. She grew up in central Pennsylvania before attending the University of Pittsburgh. After graduating she found a passion for food and farming and had her first encounter with weaving while working on a farm in New Mexico in 2014. A seed was planted that would later bloom into a love for tapestry. She is currently working on a series of weavings based on walls around her neighborhood of Wilkinsburg.
