Charles and Beth Steidle Art Exhibit At ModernFormations Gallery

Opening June 4th 7-10 pm

“Quel Dommage! The Artwork of Siblings Beth and Charles Steidle”

Quel dommage! What a shame! What a pity! This exhibit is inspired by all the little sadnesses and minor disasters accumulated over time: a malfunctioning anatomy, a rabid raccoon, a falling horse, a missing arm, animals eating other animals. As children, Charles rubbed red yarn in Beth’s eye. Beth repeatedly told Charles he was adopted and unwanted. Now, as responsible adults, they have teamed up to present new works, in a variety of media, created throughout the past year.

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.
