Join us for an evening of artwork and conversation with Artist-in-Residence Cue Perry, whose work represents the Center for Urban Education’s yearlong theme of “Witnessing.” Through his powerful art display, you can experience what it means to witness and testify to experiences of injustice as well as joy and righteousness through various eras in time. Light refreshments will be provided as you walk through the gallery exhibit of his work.
Meet the Artist
Pittsburgh native, Quentin “ C.B.Perry “ has been quietly pursuing a career in the arts his entire life. Growing up, Perry was member of many art clubs in elementary, middle, and high school. He graduated from Brashear High School in 2004 with a diploma in applied technology from which he was taught the basics of graphic design and computer programing. From there, he attended the University of Pittsburgh and majored in graphic design. After his first year, Quentin felt irresolute about pursuing a career in the arts, so he decided to change his major and pursue other ventures.
After a few years, he bounced around in various career fields, until he arrived to the age of 30 and decided to pursue art once again. C.B.Perry is known for his unconventional and often unfiltered humor which is translated throughout his artwork. Quentin Perry aka "C.B.Perry" takes an unconventional view of social, political, and cultural topics. Perry deconstructs pop culture that visually represents the randomness present in daily life, and promotes thinking outside of the box. Perry has sold nearly 700 original paintings world-wide and has been nominated by Pittsburgh City Paper for best local visual artist three years in a row.
“My art isn’t for the safe, level-headed, boring, single-minded person. It’s not for the practical, rational person. It’s not for the calm, businesslike, no-nonsense crowd. I want my art to speak to the wild, creative open minds who dare to express themselves. The minds who aren’t afraid of fun, I want to excite the untamed and untapped creative parts of the mind.“ - C.B. Perry
