Community Supported Art (CSA PGH) is a program that builds lasting relationships with artists and cultural consumers. Not unlike the boxes of fruit and vegetables that one might get from a local farm as an agricultural CSA, CSA PGH creates “shares” of art to feed the public’s cultural appetite. We are part of a national artist-driven movement that commissions artists to produce editionable works that are grouped and sold to the public as CSA PGH shares.

Shareholders are invited to special events to pick up the artwork, meet the artists, and talk with the CSA PGH team. To date, the program has commissioned 29 artists and produced 190 shares.

Participation in Memory Palace at Artist Equity Gallery in NYC

August 2018

Equity Gallery is pleased to present Memory Palace, a group show curated by Margot Yale and featuring the work of Audrée Anid, Jamie Earnest, and Kelly Olshan curated by Margot Yale. The exhibition takes its name from the “method of loci,” an ancient imaginal technique used by Greco-Roman orators. This approach also referred to as the “memory palace” relies on the assumption that spatial memory of familiar places is the most potent mnemonic device. Using the memory palace, a subject can memorize the layout of an architectural environment, pairing each physical locus with a distinct fact. By imagining the experience of walking through this space, one can facilely retrieve this new material.

The three artists featured in Memory Palace explore this relationship between memory and architectural space. Tapping into fleeting, personal, imagined, and unattainable spaces, these artists negotiate the boundaries between lived experience and fictional, spatial environments. The intricacies and incompatibilities of the architectural constructions within these artists’ work capture how both fleeting imaginaries and enduring memories are invariably entangled in the built environment. Their works challenge the limits of spatial logic and demand that we reorient ourselves amid these disjointed landscapes.

September 5 - October 13, 2018
Equity Gallery, 245 Broome Street, New York, NY 10002
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 5th, 6 PM-8 PM
Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Friday, 1-7 PM and Saturday, 12-6 PM

Annually, Carnegie Mellon University recognizes graduating seniors via a process known as Senior Leadership Recognition, where staff and faculty across the University nominate students who have made significant contributions during their time as a member of the Carnegie Mellon University community. While we have many talented and involved students in each graduating class, this recognition is reserved for those students who have made an unparalleled impact on our community. These individuals leave Carnegie Mellon a better place as a result of their leadership, vision, and initiative. Each recipient of this recognition has created a unique imprint on the culture and life of this institution through his or her contributions to academics and research, the arts, athletics, civic engagement, and community development.

Private Spaces / Public Personas opens at The Andy Warhol Museum February 17th as part of the Exposure series

February 2016

"Earnest creates three new large-scale paintings that incorporate details from the private, residential spaces of both Andy Warhol and Chow. Mined from the Sotheby’s catalogues of Warhol’s estate sale, Earnest incorporates objects and other interior details from Warhol’s private townhouse. Famous for his collection of cookie jars, Warhol was also an avid collector of American decorative art and paintings from his contemporaries like Basquiat and Lichtenstein. Bringing these objects in dialogue with details from Chow’s home in Los Angeles, sourced from press articles online, Earnest’s paintings present abstracted views of the private dwellings of these two famous personas."


Revision Space chosen to participate in Aqua Art Miami, Earnest is one of four chosen Pittsburgh artists to be represented by Revision Space at the art fair.

Revision Space is participating in the art fair during the dates of December 2nd-6th, 2015.
