      The Associated Artists of Butler County (AABC) are pleased to announce a call for artists for an exhibit to open in the main Rittelmann Gallery.

      Futuristic Art is a new exhibit and is open to all artists at any point in their career. This is a themed show and must represent ‘Futuristic Art’.

      About the Judge: Glenn Wonsettler

      Glenn Wonsettler has been part of the administrative team at The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as its Visitor Services Department Manager since August of 2004. Working closely with the Museum’s Educational, Curatorial and Marketing departments, he represents the visitors and patronage of The Warhol in all aspects of its function. He manages a staff of Gallery Attendants whose duties are to not only protect The Warhol Museums’ collection, but also to assist museum visitors with facts about the artworks on view while providing information about Warhol’s background and historical significance; setting them apart from typical gallery or museum security personnel.


      A graduate of the BFA program at Slippery Rock University in 2002, Wonsettler concentrated in Painting, but also studied extensively in Photography and Ceramics. He participated in many Art Department clubs and activities as well as exhibited his work on multiple occasions at the campus gallery as well as in galleries throughout the region. He spent a semester studying at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia where he was able to exhibit his work and travel throughout the region. Wonsettler has also traveled extensively, both nationally and internationally, visiting countries such as Germany, Italy, France, and Japan and studying many of their renowned museum’s collections. He began work in art administration at the LaFond Gallery on Pittsburgh’s South Side as the Assistant to the Director before accepting his position at The Andy Warhol Museum.


      Heavily active in the arts and art community to this day, now in Pittsburgh where he resides, Wonsettler has recently exhibited new works in group shows at several Pittsburgh institutions and galleries such as: Modern Formations Gallery, Space and The Andy Warhol Museum. He is currently preparing for an exhibition later this year.

      The Associated Artists of Butler County is the oldest cultural organization in Butler County. Our rich history began in 1934 as our intent to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, as well as to encourage and foster art. From 19 original members our organization has grown to over 350 members.
