Rock, Paper, Scissors
opening April 2

one art exhibition
three unique galleries
three distinct neighborhoods

April 2 through May 23, 2010

Rock, Paper, Scissors is an art exhibition linking three unique galleries located in three distinct Pittsburgh neighborhoods and featuring local, national, and international artists.

Each venue will focus on one of the three titular materials—Rock at SPACE in the Cultural District, encompassing work ranging from video to installation art; Paper at Artists Image Resource (AIR) on the historic North Side, presenting intricate paper cut-outs, sculpture, and more; and Scissors at cutting-edge Fe Arts Gallery in Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh’s newest arts scene, featuring all things sharp and some shiny, including electric and kinetic elements.

The exhibition title reflects the playful competition of the children’s game that inspired it. As competitors, the three galleries take turns winning. The triangle of galleries, like the triangle of rivers, represents a spirit of cooperation among the collaborating participants and a linking of diverse neighborhoods that characterize the city.

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,
