German is a performer and mixed-media artist who makes works out of repurposed everyday materials from paper bags and bottles to beads, buttons and fabric. Her show at Concept is called Vanessa German: The Ordinary Sacred. Her works have been exhibited in spaces around Pittsburgh and around the country.

The Homewood resident is also the creator of the "Stop Shooting We Love You" yard-sign anti-violence campaign.

Saturday's event is at her New Art House, which she established so neighborhood kids would have a place to make art.

Visitors are asked to "bring a bottle with a sacred or healing word, phrase, name or poem inside, or an old pair of shoes, to make an interactive ordinary sacred space."

The New Art House is located at 7701 Hamilton Ave., in Homewood. The event is free.
