from blog creator rick byerly:

blog sponsor:

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

Open Thread is a new regional arts organization, which seeks to establish frameworks for artistic discovery in Pittsburgh and the surrounding tri-state area. Open Thread provides local communities with arts outreach, education, and opportunities for publication, performance or exhibition.

Open Thread is currently at work on its inaugural project: Open Thread Regional Review, Vol. 1, a journal series featuring regional art and literature. Our call for online submissions is always open, however submissions for Vol. 1 are officially closed. The Regional Review Vol. 1 will be released later this year, so check back soon for details about the release event.

Please join us at any of our upcoming events to help raise funds for the release of our journal. These events include our Variety Variety Variety show at brillobox, our new POETSBURGH reading series and more!

Future manifestations of Open Thread's goals will include publications, performances, readings, lectures, workshops, and much more. Check our Events page for up-to-date information, or to see how you can get involved.

We're always looking for writers, performance artists, dancers, burlesque performers, DJs, VJs, video artists, local bands, theatre troupes, art vendors…the list goes on and on!

Register with Open Thread today
to tell us what you can contribute!
