We hope you all are doing well and are ready for summer to begin. We're
thrilled to announce our upcoming *Communion III *fundraising party, which
will be next *Saturday, June 19th*! Thanks to everyone who has come out to
our past parties for making them so much fun - we hope to see lots of both
familiar and new faces for this next installment. The details are below,
and we've also attached the flyers for the party. Bring your friends and
come party for the arts!

Also please note, we are working on getting our summer planned and will send
out an update as soon as the schedule is finalized.
Just let us know if you have any questions, and as always, please feel free
to forward this along to anyone who might be interested.

We call the event "Communion", to play on our studio location in an old
Catholic school 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 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 blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh art advocate rick byerly,
