Zombo Gallery Art Events August 2010

Well, between all the events at Zombo Gallery and our outside events, it's been the best summer ever! Thanks to all for checking a few of our many cool things out.

Here's what we have in store for you August til Labor Day.

1. Opening at Zombo Gallery Aug 13th 6-9pm are Daiv Waley's mind wrenching Polaroids. Daiv has been very active in both the Chicago and Ohio art scene and this is his first show in Pittsburgh, Not sure how he works with this antiquated photo system. His work seems fairly organic and at the same time other worldly. They end up 12 x 12 and are way cool and inexpensive. Show runs till Aug 28th. Then join us at 10pm-2am at REMEDY (5121 Butler St) for MADNESS. DJ's Zombo and Llamo dig out all their old ska, punk and reggae music to send the summer out with a sizzle. The Zombotron will be making a rare nightclub appearance!

2.Then Nat Chamberlin and Brian "Bullets" Holton curate VINYLPLASTY, a two night only custom vinyl toy art show at Zombo Gallery on Friday Sept. 3/4 from 7-11pm. 23 artist were hand selected to take part in the unique event.

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art 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,
