South Side Art Galleries, Stores, Venues and Events. Not just bars there. Pittsburgh, PA

So on Pittsburgh's South Side there are bar crawls instead of art gallery crawls. Ok, that's a given. And there used to be more traditional art galleries there over the last 10 years than now but art on the South Side is far from dwindling. Without getting into a laundry list of all the galleries and venues, you can get that here , I'll cover a few. Silver Eye Center for Photography is a nationally known fine art photography gallery and educational center with members from across the United States, many from the area as well. The Brew House ranges from artist workspaces to education, training, exhibit spaces and much more. The Academy of the South Side is located there, website here . You may find Dr Sketchy's Anti Art School holding sessions there, or at Gypsy Cafe. The I Made It Market! has events at the Brew House as well. Hart's and Packrat Handmade Art, distinct from each other in the types of art there, are two stores which feature local artwork for sale at good prices. Right now the work of well known artist Charles Smith II is at Breathe Yoga. I suggest taking a long walk on Carson Street and visiting all the venues listed here. You can print the list as well and use as a guide. Also the art events listed above can be found at the links here and here .
