Artists Image Resource (AIR) is a printmaking studio on Pittsburgh’s North Side that hosts an annual special fundraising event to secure support for its artistic and educational programming
AIR provides printmaking facilities to independent artists and artists in residence, offering educational programs that explore the creative process. AIR’S studio is a laboratory environment where artists, students and the public interact.
Our theme this year is playing and winning. Party guests will have the opportunity to play, bid, compete, and win at games designed by local artists. Guests will also have the chance to participate in printmaking activities, guided by AIR staff.
To ensure the party will be truly festive, food will be provided by local food vendors the Taco Truck, Sugarmaid’s stroop waffle ice cream sandwiches and others. Drinks will be plentiful thanks to East End Brewery
Incredibly fantastic music will be provided by Shawn Watson (DJ), followed by Red Western at 9 and Josh Verbanets from Meeting of Important People & Things That Aren't There Anymore at 10.
One of the signature elements for the AIR annual event is an exhibition of phenomenal work donated by artists working in the region and beyond. All of the work is raffled off for $10.00 tickets at the end of the night. It is a fantastic opportunity to own great work by significant artists, while supporting the printmaking studio.
Please join us for this fantastic event.
