@ Pgh Filmmakers

Opening reception June 11, 2010 6-9pm

Ag Works is an emerging artist collective in Pittsburgh whose focus is helping artists create and share work with each other. Formed by a small group of Pittsburgh Filmmakers alumni, the group was conceived to provide working artists a setting in which to share new work and gain feedback from their peers. Though Ag Works was started by a group of photographers, artists of all disciplines are welcome. The ten members of Ag Works whose work is represented have shown at local, national, and international venues.

Interstitial is Ag Works' debut show and includes work by Allen Benson, Sally Bozzuto, Julia Bodura, Bryan Conley, Magali Duzant, Ellen Bjerklie Hanna, Missy Jarzenske, Laura Jean Kahl, Mandy Kendall, and Matt Robison.


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.
