The buchfield Penney presents material from the Steel Plant Museum

A small exhibit of photos and other items from the Steel Plant Museum on display at the Burchfield Penney Art Center (in conjunction with an exhibit of steel industry related artworks from the Burchfield Penney collection) was sufficiently intriguing that I thought I really should get out to the Steel Plant Museum and see that facility.

Members show at the Burchfield Penney Art Center

So many people but so much art. There were 665 individual artworks presented to a public that seemingly came out of the woodwork filling to capacity the wide halls and spaces of the Burchfield Penney last month. Billed as a members show, The Artists Among Us had its opening on May 25; members of the Burchfield Penney were encouraged to submit one artwork, maximum size 28-by-34 inches, all of which were included in the show without jury in a group exhibition. The art-making public who were members or became members before the deadline for submission were guaranteed a place on the wall.
