Pittsburgh Center for the Arts

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania — The first collaborative exhibition of works by members of Associated Artists of Pittsburgh (AAP), Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts (PF/PCA) and its eight artist guilds is scheduled to open next month as part of AAP’s Centennial celebration. Interplay runs from June 25-August 22, 2010 at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts (PCA), 6300 Fifth Avenue. Eric Shiner, Milton Fine Curator of Art at The Andy Warhol Museum, served as juror. There will be an opening reception at PCA, open to the public, the evening of June 25th from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. A suggested donation of $5.00 is requested at the door.

Interplay provides an exceptional view of Pittsburgh’s fertile and diverse arts community,” says artist and Interplay Chair Connie Cantor. “The exhibition features compelling works by emerging and established artists working across the full spectrum of media—from installation, video, photography, sculpture, painting, printmaking, fiber arts 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 blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh art advocate rick byerly,
