Guest Curator Series Responding
April 16 – May 15, 2010
Opening Reception April16, 6-9pm
Pittsburgh, PA – April 2010
Curated by: Anna E. Mikolay

An exhibition of new works created by artists Rose Clancy, Vanessa
German, Maria Mangano, David Montano and David Pohl.

Have you ever had the experience of passing by a place where you are
drawn to it and then later find yourself thinking about it? Is it the
beauty, mystery, sadness and or history of it that causes you to
linger?
And if you had the opportunity to respond to this place what would you
do? How would you proceed?

Curator, Anna E. Mikolay asked five local artists these same questions
this past January. The exhibition, Responding, highlights the new
works created in response to these questions. Selected sites include
the block of an abandoned church, an urban intersection, a private
garden, a collapsed barn and a collection of postcards from the past.
Each artist responded differently to this challenge including creating
hidden shrines, photo documentations, sculptures, maps, dis-assembling
of materials and more.

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 www.PghGalleries.com.

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