Memory Scenes: A Kathleen Ferri Retrospective

Temporary Exhibition - October 8, 2021 through February 27, 2022


Kathleen Ferri first picked up a paintbrush at 58-years-old. Now 95, her "memory scenes" will be collectively on view for the first time—including a number of paintings that will also receive a public debut. Kathleen's work preserves the small-town streets of her childhood with an intuitive sense of history and the warmth of sentiment. They radiate with color and burst with joy as expressive figures make their way through downtown Turtle Creek, riverside mills, Kennywood heritage days, and more. See the Mon Valley as few have in this career retrospective, presented by Rivers of Steel and augmented with archival artifacts from the organization's collections. Memory Scenes: A Kathleen Ferri Retrospective is curated by Barbara L. Jones, chief curator at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art, and Ron Baraff, director of historic resources and facilities for Rivers of Steel.
