HEREAFTER - An Exhibition Featuring Work by Ryan Lammie and Alisha Wormsley
May 15 - June 13, 2015
Opening reception: May 15, 2015, 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Art Space 616’s next exhibition Hereafter will feature Pittsburgh artists Ryan Lammie and Alisha Wormsley. Hereafter will involve multiple mediums and explore concepts related to culture and identity.
The exhibition will be on display from Friday, May 15 through Saturday, June 13th, 2015, and the opening reception for Hereafter will be held on May 15, 2015 from 6 – 9 pm at 616 Beaver Street in Sewickley.
“We chose to show these artists together because they share themes that address the origins of race and identity,” Gallery Director Elysia Cecchetti. “Although their ideas may spring from similar places, the expression of these ideas take form in different mediums.”

Lammie is a sculptural painter living in Lawrenceville, PA. He uses found-objects, industrial materials, and domestic waste as source material for creating multi-dimensional, monochromatic, light-driven work.
“Hereafter will include a mini survey of works created over the past four years with new photographic and sculptural work mixed in,” Lammie said. “I'm excited to see the contrast between mine and Alisha's work, given our unique backgrounds.”
Wormsley is an interdisciplinary artist whose work focuses on the collective memory and the synchronicity of time periods. She uses photography, video, sculpture and sound to deconstruct accepted realities in order to recreate new conceptual mythologies. She layers methods of science fiction, collage theory and folklore to reconstruct stories, examining themes of gender, class, race and time.

“I am really excited about showing work in Sewickley. It's a homecoming of sorts; I partially grew up there. Both of my parents were born there,” Wormsley said. “I think Ryan makes great work and I think our process and inspirations are similar with aesthetically different outcomes.”
