LOCALpittsburgh’s Gallery Roundup – January 2022


SEEKING A METAPHYSICAL connection between the age-old subjects of Lint and Death?

You might well find it in the current exhibit at be Galleries in Lawrenceville — Lint Sculptures by Cheryl Capezzuti and More Momento Mori by Mary M. Mazziotti.

“Lint Sculptures”, Cheryl Capezzuti (be Galleries)

Capezzuti employs dryer lint embedded with assorted everyday detritus to create archeological representations of extraordinary creatures — some human, some something else. Mazziotti’s textiles emphasize life’s ephemerality using the memento mori technique with roots extending to ancient Greece and Egypt.

— THROUGH Feb. 5, 2022 at be Galleries, 3583 Butler St., Pittsburgh. (412) 687-2606.
