Getting the Spirit Out, 2024 Distillery Artist Residency Exhibition
May 9 – June 22, 2024

What makes an artwork come to life? What are the forces that animate creative practice? The artists in Getting the Spirit Out, the 2024 Distillery Residency exhibition, have created a group of works that feel distinctly alive—channeling spirits and visualizing the unseen energy around us. Though they all work in very different ways, using a variety of media and processes, and draw on unique cultural backgrounds, the artists in this year’s Distillery cohort all use their practice to give life—to history, memory, suffering, and joy—and to set their creative spirits free.

This year’s Artists-in-Residence are Imani Batts, Armanis Fuentes, Finn Dugan, Joshua Challen Ice, Evangeline Mensah-Agyekum, Sophie Thompson, and Caroline Yoo. Find out more about this year’s artists on the 2023-2024 Distillery page.

Upcoming Exhibitions:

And Also Wide: Artists/Mothers Lines
Flock Artist Collective
July 18 – September 7, 2024

Opening Reception: Thursday, July 18 (6-8 pm)

The Flock Artist Collective is composed of artist/mothers whose creative practices explore the wide-ranging, multifaceted, often-unseen work of parenting. Each artist has their own way of tracing out the lines that connect artmaking to mothering, and none of them look like simple geometry. They are lines with mass and weight, lines that meander like rivers over time, lines that blur, lines that start to fray where they are stretched near breaking. Above all, they are lines that converge, sketching out the arcs of lives. Long or short, they are also wide.

The Flock Artists have roots in Pittsburgh, flocking together annually to show together and expand what it means to be an artist/mother, from a wide range of ages, stages, and backgrounds. With each iteration, they grow new connections between neighborhoods, subcultures, generations, and ways of being in the world.
