Diane Pieri achieves a feeling of universal harmony in her work by referencing non-western symbols, styles, and philosophies, particularly those of India, Japan, and Tibet. She seamlessly blends ancient and modern motifs, materials and techniques to form a singular whole in her abstract decorative pieces. Her overarching desire is to make art that beautifies life’s experiences. Pieri’s work is in collections in the United States, China, Japan and Romania.

Since 1969 Pieri has had 28 solo exhibitions and been included in over 190 national and international group exhibitions. She has been the recipient of two Pollock-Krasner Grants (1999/1992), two Independence Foundation Fellowships in the Arts (2001/2011) which supported her travel to Japan and India, a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Grant (1992). She was included in the 2005 Philadelphia Invitational Portfolio, Philagrafika. She has been a fellow at Yaddo (1991) and The MacDowell Colony (1990). In 1990 Pieri was an Artist-in-Residence at Mark diSuvero’s Socrates Sculpture Park where she created Gateway, a 15 ft. sculpture using 3,000 recycled can lids collected by the Philadelphia community. In 2006 Pieri’s public art project, Manayunk Stoops: Heart and Home, a series of 9 seating elements fabricated in Italian tesserae, was installed along Philadelphia’s Manayunk towpath through the Association for Public Art’s New Land Marks Program. Working with Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program, Pieri has completed 10 murals since 2001. Working with elementary school children in College Station, Texas she has completed 6 murals since 2009. Pieri is a Teaching Artist at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and The Barnes Foundation. In 2005 she founded the Cooke Museum of Art at the Jay Cooke Elementary School in North Philadelphia. This museum is the only established museum within a Philadelphia public school. In 2012 she was invited to collaborate with Anthropologie to design a robe and loungers based on her work.
