Moxie Dada's Unique Art Gallery and Corey LeChat's Photography

Saturday (August 9) I hopped on a bus downtown and checked out Treasures on the Northside then The Warhol for the AAP Annual on the 6th floor and never before exhibited works from Piet Mondrian on the 7th. After some walking around the Northside I checked out Moxie Dada at 1416 Arch Street for Corey LeChat's photography opening. A really awesome space in the oldest firehouse in Pittsburgh, circa 1877. And it's for sale! I really enjoyed seeing Corey's newer work and learning from him that he doesn't use traditional lenses for his 35mm camera but uses "found glass". I appreciate that as well as his creative use of color and lights. The exhibit, Candy Dreams of Spacemen, runs until August 30, 2008. I believe a closing reception is in the works. Moxie Dada has really cool people running it's space and I recommend checking it out on a monthly basis. Also, see work from Mark Traughber, Shari Lynn Bennett and other talented artists!

Moxie Dada, Firehouse Studios 1416 Arch Street Pittsburgh 15212 North Side 412-682-0348 Gallery hours: Friday, Saturday 12-8pm. Sunday 12-5pm. All other days by Appointment. Curator Grant Bobitski.
