Creative Byproducts: A Dual Exhibition by Anna Brewer and Sam Berner


Creative Byproducts is a dual exhibition by Anna Brewer and Sam Berner, which will take place at Future Tenant from April 22 to May 21, 2016. The opening reception will start at 6 PM on April 22, 2016. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Creative Byproducts presents a truly collaborative new body of work born from the political, physical, and visual interchange of its makers: Pittsburgh-based artists Anna Brewer and Sam Berner. The duo’s collaborative process abides by a mutual agreement to each be present during the creation of the work. Emerging from academic backgrounds in ceramics and painting respectively, Sam and Anna’s creative trajectories collide on six mammoth canvases, the smallest of which stretches to 6 by 7 feet. Where Sam embraces flatness and a commitment to the immediacy of each stroke of paint, Anna’s rapid and intuitive marks expertly layer texture and volume bringing narrative forms to life. Visitors are invited to engage with Sam and Anna’s collaborative process by applying their own creative gesture to live, interactive works of art.
