The Academy of the South Side Fundraiser April 17 2010

On April 17th 2010, The Academy of the South Side is having our second Communion rent party/fundraiser, this time with more booze, more entertainment, and more parking! Doors open at 7pm, music around 8, and admission is free, with drinks available for a small suggested donation, up to $10 for a bottomless cup of beer or wine.

The Lineup:
Tracksploitation - the baddest DJs in Pittsburgh
Kirik Hava - Turkish band
Joanna and Kari of Sadiqa Belly Dancing
Paintings by The Academy

Detailed directions and parking information can be found at

We call the event "Communion", to play on our studio location in an old church building, and also to highlight the community of artists and supporters that call Pittsburgh home. We are hoping to make these parties a regular event to showcase exciting art and music created by talented Pittsburghers, so let's all come together to have some drinks, listen to good tunes, see some beautiful paintings, and support the arts.

The party will be at the old St. Michaels' girls school building at 44 Pius Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15203 in the South Side Slopes. It is our home base and also the Veronica's Veil Community Arts Center building, and they were generous enough to allow us to utilize the beautiful main ballroom floor for this event.

Please help us get the word out and tell your friends to come party for the arts!

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,
