Mattress Factory Fundraiser October 18 2008


The Pittsburgh Galleries blog is a volunteer effort from Rick Byerly to promote Pittsburgh art events which feature artists from the area. The website effort is an up-to-date directory with Pittsburgh area art venues. Thanks go to Sirani Gallery of 5875 Forbes Ave in Squirrel Hill for being a sponsor and David L. Edwards Art and Anonymous for their donations to this effort. Donation and sponsor info can be found here. Rick Byerly, Uniquetake Photography

from the Mattress Factory:

As you know, we're rounding the bend to the Mattress Factory's Anniversary Art Auction, which will take place on Saturday, October 18, at 8.00PM. This is a very important fundraiser for the museum, and the list of artists who have donated work to the auction is staggering: James Turrell, Kiki Smith, Anita Dube, Raqs Media Collective, Ann Hamilton, Diane Samuels, Hema Upadhyay and John Waters just to name a few.
This year, there are three ways to bid: in-person, online and by phone. Please visit for more information and to view all 120 lots up for auction.

I've attached an informational e-flyer in .jpg format. Everyone here at the MF would be extremely grateful if you could help spread the word by emailing the flyer to those on your contact list who might be interested, posting on your personal blog, or sharing via social networking websites. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have questions or need more information.

Thanks in advance and warm regards,Jeffrey Inscho
