Two unconventional car-themed openings tomorrow for Pittsburgh artist Jason Sauer

Posted By on Thu, Feb 11, 2016 at 12:05 PM

Jason Sauer, Pittsburgh’s best-known artist who’s also a demolition-derby driver, debuts two shows drawing on his automotive interests, both at nontraditional venues. And they’re timed so you can catch both of them.

At 7 p.m., head to the Sewickley Starbucks for six new paintings by Sauer that honor the birthplace of Porsche, which, as Sauer puts it, “was conceived as a tractor in a barn in Germany.” The paintings were made with PPG paint on Alcoa aluminum plate, and sport handmade wooden frames. The free event at 425 Beaver St., runs through 9:30 p.m. and includes Starbucks refreshments.

At 10 p.m., Sauer will be at Brillobox (just up Penn Avenue from his own Most Wanted Fine Art gallery) to debut his latest sculpture made from demo-derby parts. This one, he says, “has a Monster Jam theme … and it’s painted white, because it is being 3D mapped” and then projected in the space. The projection is a collabo with ProjectileObjects.

The Brillobox event has an admission price ($10) because it’s actually more than an art opening: It’s a whole Monster Truck-themed evening also featuring U.K. dubstep legend Hatcha, from South London, with support from local lazercrunk DJs Cutups and Keebs. More info on the musical portion of the evening is here.

The Brillobox event is 21-and-over and runs till 2 a.m. For presale tickets, look here

Brillobox is located at 4104 Penn Ave., in Bloomfield.
