18 February 2013 No Comment

Inside Out: Solo Exhibition of Contemporary Artworks by Aaron Treher
Opens 6 to 9 p.m. March 1

Aaron Treher, cofounder of The Thought Lot Contemporary Arts Center, will be featured
as The Thought Lot’s March – April’s exhibitor.

The opening reception will take place at 6 p.m. March 1, during First Friday festivities.

There will be sculpture, installation, prints, and drawings on display, with installation art and sculpture as the focus. Everything is Treher’s original work. Some of his past artwork can be seen at www.aarontreher.com.

Treher graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor of fine arts in
sculpture and magna cum laude honors in 2009. Over the five years in his studies Treher
received three art scholarships, three juried art competition awards, and participated in a
student exchange in Croatia.

His work has been exhibited in Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Lancaster; Zagreb, Croatia; and Shippensburg. One of his sculptures is currently a part of a public sculpture garden in Bjelovar, Croatia.

Treher has spent the last three years focusing on development and implementation of The Thought Lot. He considers
The Thought Lot a community arts project, aimed at the benefit of the community and the
arts.

Alongside the exhibition, Treher will construct a mold-making and casting workshop in coordination with The Wonder Collective at The Thought Lot. The workshop will take place Saturday, March 30. It is open to all ages at different times through the day (Kids 9-11 a.m., Teens 1-3 p.m., and Adults 4-6 p.m.).

Much of Treher’s work relies on mold making to create plaster, concrete, bronze and nontraditional materials. Participants will learn how to make basic molds, food-safe silicone molds, and how to cast objects in a variety of materials.

Email Treher at aadtreher@gmail.com with questions about the workshop. There is a limit of persons per class. To reserve a spot in the workshop visit www.thewondercollective.com.
