History: Fe gallery (pronounced Effie or FE- the two letters) is named for the symbol of Iron on the periodical table. We chose a name that would have a national presence with direct significance relating to Pittsburgh’s historical roots to steel in the iron city. Fe gallery is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Over the past four years Fe gallery has displayed 24 exhibitions, and has received more than 35 local and national reviews.Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be included in a full-color catalogue, which will accompany the exhibition. This catalogue will be distributed throughout the country, documenting the full scope of important, creative talent in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
