Exhibit Review: Artists Janese Hexon and Connie Cantor at the Christine Frechard Gallery in Squirrel Hill

Good to see the Pittsburgh Tribune Review and Kurt Shaw covering the talented work of Pittsburgh artists Janese Hexon and Connie Cantor. I also like the sentiment expressed by gallery owner Christine Frechard: "I'm tired of hearing that there's no collectors here, there's no money here. Great artists from here are exhibiting outside of the city and collectors are buying outside of the city."

Review link.

The exhibit runs until April 8, 2010.

Gallery Hours:

Tuesday - Saturday: 10:30 AM - 6:00 PM
Sunday: 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

5871 Forbes Avenue

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,
