The Pittsburgh Galleries blog is a volunteer effort from Rick Byerly to promote Pittsburgh art events which feature artists from the area. The PghGalleries.com 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
Carnegie Mellon's School of Art website has been revamped and you can now sign up for their new email newsletter by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject:
It's a great resource for the area and I don't want to duplicate their great efforts there so be sure to sign up. Between their news, ThisIsHappening.com and the Pittsburgh Galleries blog you will be kept well informed as far as art events. Note that I don't blog normally about the Carnegie affiliated museums too much (they do well communicating their events to members). Be sure to check out all the Pittsburgh blogs I link to on the right hand side farther down on the main blog page.
I will be gradually focusing more on blogging primarily about underserved/ underrepresented Pittsburgh artists and art events. Galleries and other outfits who don't fit into that category can become a blog sponsor or advertise to have their events blogged.
Like what's posted on this blog and the website http://www.pghgalleries.com/ ? This is a volunteer effort so donations of any size are welcome which can be made via paypal here . Also at that link anyone interested in purchasing banner space, which includes placement on this blog and the PghGalleries.com website, can sign up there. Thanks! Rick Byerly
