This exhibition debuts a new body of work by acclaimed New York–based painter Ruth Root.

With a jolt of pattern and shape, Root’s eccentric paintings dazzle and perplex with their play of geometry, color and found images. These new works are composed of two parts involving a shaped panel painted with acrylic and spray paint suspended from a flexible sewn form covered with the artist’s own fabric designs. Incorporating found imagery from news media, art history, online search engines and objects from the Carnegie Museum’s own collection, Root creates eye-popping patterns.

The exhibit is located in the museum’s Forum Gallery. For more information, call (412) 622-3131.
