“With “Small Works” we are charged with looking more closely that with larger ones whose elements may be more broadly appreciated. We must always look harder. I have placed some works on the distressed brick walls of this gallery (in fact my favorite location is located there). when you are a few inches from these works, in my opinion, they come to life.”
Heinz History Center Pittsburgh, PA : November 2016 - June 2017
The 2017 exhibit, "The Gift of Art" at the Heinz History Center contained work from members of The Abstract Group and Group A, and included work from members of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh. This exhibition exemplified connections between communities and the artists that inhabit them.
The Heinz writes about this exhibit, "In 1916 a group of art lovers, “The One Hundred Friends of Pittsburgh Art," began a unique effort. As members of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh (AAP), they raised money to purchase original art from the annual AAP show and donated those works to the Pittsburgh Public Schools. The first year the group bought two paintings; within a decade they had raised almost $10,000 and purchased 49 pieces for display in the city's schools. Seeking to inspire an appreciation for art and a "love of the beautiful" among school students, the Friends of Art has continued their mission, building a collection that captures the evolution of art and culture in the region. This gift of art, shared with tens of thousands of school children over the last century, is now shared in a museum for the first time. It offers a compelling perspective on the work of regional artists and the subjects that have inspired them."

“Entangled" is an exhibition consisting of artwork created by Group A and its invited guests. Group A is a Pittsburgh based artist group of 100 or fewer visual artists. Group A members will respond to the various denotations and connotations of an interesting word, embodied with diverse meanings, often evocative of deep emotions. The dictionary defines entangled as “twisted together,” or “caught in.” Conversely, we know it as a word describing the involvement in complex circumstances, from which one often finds it difficult to escape.

“I like to think of Group A as a stealth organization. Simply put, it is a group of committed artists who care about the arts. They are not the largest nor are they the most vocal group, but they have weathered shifts in the arts landscape by remaining dedicated to the making, exhibiting, and critiquing of art.”
