The Only Thing That is Constant is Change
Noele Dattilo Reynolds
September 14-November 12
Opening Reception: September 24, 5:30-7:30 pm
Arts & Education at the Hoyt is pleased to introduce The Only Thing That is Constant is Change, a new mixed media exhibition by Noele Dattilo Reynolds currently on display at The Confluence through November 12. While working predominantly in ceramics, Reynolds discovered that mixed media allows her to create a personal connection to her work.
“The organic forms that I create in clay are taken from nature, the truest example of growth and change that surrounds us,” explains Reynolds. “…the found objects and personal memorabilia provide the context (for me) that ceramic in its pure form did not satisfy. The textures and layers that they create tie the past with the present.”
Reynolds received her BFA in Graphic Design from Kent State University in 1990 and a Master’s Degree in Art Education from Carlow University in 2000. Coincidentally, Reynolds interned with the Hoyt in 2000 developing curriculum for the much acclaimed Earth, Wind & Fire: 5 Millennia of Chinese Ceramics exhibit later that year.
Currently, Reynolds is working on her MFA in Ceramics through Edinboro University. She has had numerous exhibitions in Pittsburgh and the surrounding area, including the Panza Gallery, Fein Gallery and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Reynolds also co-founded, and is the current president of, Cranberry Artists Network. Reynolds has been an Art Educator with the Seneca Valley School District for twenty-two years. Reynolds lives in Harmony, PA with her husband, Randy, and children, Jack and Ella.
The Only Thing That is Constant is Change is part of an on-going partnership between the Hoyt and Cray Youth & Family Services to exhibit local art and artists at The Confluence downtown. A free public reception will be held September 24, 5:30-7:30 pm.
