First Friday Art Walk Salon des Refuse Mendelson, Ellsworth Ave Shadyside

First Friday Art Walk on Ellsworth Ave in Shadyside Every First Friday of the month from 5-9pm

Friday August 1st, 2008 will feature Salon des Refuse. Salon des Refuse is an annual art event where Mendelson Gallery owner Steve chooses work which has been rejected by the juror of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Annual exhibit. I saw most of the pieces chosen by Steve Mendelson during the AAP screening and it looks like it will be a great exhibit ( no surprise there!).

Keep an eye out for David Edward's new sculpture titled "Social Climber". The Mendelson Gallery is located at 5874 Ellsworth Avenue in the Shadyside area of Pittsburgh. The exhibition, titled "Salon des Refuse" opens August 1, 2008 and runs through the month. The August 1 opening coordinates with The First Friday Event and festivities on Ellsworth Ave.

The First Friday Art Walk also includes Gallerie Chis, Bella Arte, Gallery in the Square, Morgan Contemporary Glass, and Wax Jewelry Design.
