Exhibition Showcases Work of Pitt's Studio Arts Faculty

PITTSBURGH-The work of 14 local artists-some emerging and some already established-is being featured at the Pitt Department of Studio Arts “2008 Faculty Exhibition.” The show runs through Nov. 21 at the University Art Gallery in the Frick Fine Arts Building, 650 Schenley Dr., Oakland. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, call 412-648-2436.

These artists create personal work and teach in Pitt's Department of Studio Arts, part of the School of Arts and Sciences.
