April 2015 Events / by amy weiland

The seasons are starting to turn toward Spring, which means a lot of fun things happening at Constellation! Not only is our iced coffee service back in full swing, our friends are out and about showing off their winter projects. On Thursday, April 2nd we are providing coffee and snacks for Work.Nights. at the Lawrenceville Library. Last month's was a success and we're looking forward to getting things done again in April!

On Saturday, April 11, we are showing the work of local weaving talent Mary Acklin. Acklin creates wall hangings with beautifully woven colors and texture. The show will be on view with items for sale through May 2nd.

For one day on April 15th, Maggie Negrette returns with her Apothecary of Esoteric Panacea, an ongoing interactive exhibit. The Apothecary was shown here last year and community members were welcome to contribute either a problem or solution to any ailment, whether physical, emotional, social, or spiritual, and house it in a prescription bottle or make a new vessel to be filled with solutions. Join us again to see if this traveling exhibit has found new solutions to your problem or new problems for you to solve!

 On April 18th, we will be hosting a breakfast pop-up with Emily Slagel and Joey Hilty to welcome their new restaurant, The Vandal. We can't wait for them to open their doors at their new Butler Street location, so we're having them sling some healthy and tasty foods along with drinks catered to their menu. Stay tuned to their twitter @thevandalpgh and our social media for more updates & finished menu as the event gets closer.

Additionally, we are going to do a test run of something customers have been asking for a while: Sunday hours. It wasn't quite feasible until now, but we're ready to give it a try. Drop in on Sunday April 19th from 9am to 2pm and let us know what you think.

Cheers! See you soon!
