plenty of sleep when we're dead: artists Mike Egan, Josh Iddings, Ron Copeland and Christian Breitkreutz

April 2, 2010
5:00 pm to 10:00 pm

PLENTY OF SLEEP WHEN WE’RE DEAD is a four-person exhibition featuring the latest work of Mike Egan, Josh Iddings, Ron Copeland and Christian Breitkreutz. See how all four artists explore the concept of life, death and the small time we have in between to achieve the goals and desires that each one of us has. Prepare to see a wide range of styles from obsessively pieced together screen-printed collage work to stylized narratives to brilliantly executed “funeral portraits” and see how these artists collectively convey the thoughts you are too frightened to have.


The Pittsburgh Art Blog

pittsburgh galleries is reborn anew as The Pittsburgh Art Blog. the blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20, 2007.

pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh art advocate rick byerly,
