I did some "bad" stuff and The City of Pittsburgh™ didn't like that. I got sent to jail and went to court 🙁 Now I'm broke and I still have the whole city's attention, so I'll make some "good" art 🙂 @goodboygems

Benny Miller

Head of Installations

Born and raised in Pittsburgh where, at an early age, I discovered the golden sanctuary known as the comic book shop. Shortly after discovering the colorful pages full of action, explosions, and superpowers, I began drawing my own characters; the course of my life was forever altered. Many years later and I am in my twelfth year of teaching art at Brentwood Middle/High School, and spend every free moment I have drawing, reading sci-fi, or watching transformers with my two boys.

Nikki Pena

Head of Woodworkers

I'm a 24 year old artist living in Murrysville who works with prominently acrylic paint, but also pen/ink and colored pencil. I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg with a degree in journalism, but creating art is definitely my true love. When I'm not teaching art classes at Paint Monkey in the Waterfront, or picking up shifts at Eat N' Park, I'm in the studio (AKA my basement) turning dreams into reality - focusing on mainly organic subject matter with a twist of surrealism and psychedelia.

Anthony Arcuri

Bismuth Cities is the project of artist, musician & material science enthusiast Anthony Arcuri. Someone who has always been drawn to the architectural anomalies left behind by ancient civilizations, Anthony quickly grew an interest in the crystallization patterns of bismuth metal and its tendency to form perfect stair-step, pyramid-like structures. Since the project’s beginning in 2014, Bismuth Cities has created hundreds of pieces using various processes. He is constantly experimenting new ways of affecting bismuth’s crystallization using everything from stones, crystals & fossils to the sound vibrations of Tibetan singing bowls. No matter how Anthony seeds the crystallization, he believes the most powerful tool is the intention he puts into the process.

Bethany Krowsoski

Bethany seeks delicate objects to be shown with an ephemeral quality, such as a ripple in a koi pond, sunlight dancing across florals or a moth pausing to rest, in which all are depicted with contemporary realism. By using both oil and acrylic paint, fragility in the environment and encapsulating transient moments have become a great interest. Bethany went to college in Erie, PA, and was born in New Kensington. In addition to painting, she also teaches high school art.
