Photographer Ruth Hendricks wins the Downtown Living Exposed award


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
Downtown Living Exposed Gallery Exhibition

Our Living Exposed exhibit at the Oct. 3 2008 Gallery Crawl in the Cultural District culminated our Living Exposed Campaign. In early September, we announced a call for photographers, seeking photographs taken within the last two years that capture the look and feel of Downtown’s emerging residential neighborhood. The contest was juried and the top 20 photographs were chosen from over 70 outstanding submissions. We showcased the top 20 photographs at our gallery exhibit during the Gallery Crawl. Click here to view a PDF of the top 20 photographs.
First Place Winner: Ruth Ella Hendricks "September Bike Shadow by Eliza Furnace Trail

Ruth's bio and sample of work can be found at the Pittsburgh Artist Registry here.
