Laura Domencic Biography

Laura Domencic is the Director of the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. She received her BFA in Art from Carnegie Mellon University and studied abroad at the University of Tasmania in Australia. She exhibits her paintings, sculptures and installations locally and nationally. As an art educator and administrator for the past ten years, she organized artist residencies and developed art education programs. When the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts closed its doors in 2004, she volunteered to organize and present animator Jim Duesing's Artist of the Year exhibit, so that this important 60-year trademark exhibition would continue. During this time, she was integral to the rebuilding and stabilizing of the Center and managing its eventual merger with Pittsburgh Filmmakers. Also acting as the Center’s artistic director, she has curated solo and group exhibitions, including the first Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts’ Biennial.
