artists Ashley Andrykovitch and Crystala Armagost: Pittsburgh art review


Pittsburgh art reviews seem hard to come by when not having to do with the obvious mainstream venues and cliques so it's good to see a review from Lissa Brennan from the Pgh City Paper of the ModernFormations exhibit by artists Ashley Andrykovitch and Crystala Armagost.

It's too bad these reviews of ModernFormations have been few and far between (or nonexistent for the 2 main newspapers) because it won't be around much longer. It's not like critics have had 10 years to check the place out. Oh yeah, they have. The gallery was started in 2001.

Quote from the City Paper Review:

Viewed independently, the works of both Ashley Andrykovitch and Crystala Armagost captivate with depth and delicacy. Joined together, as seen in the exhibition Deaf and Death, at ModernFormations Gallery, each artist brings out the other's best, illuminating through surprising intersections and complementing in their contrasts.

Deaf and Death

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 www.PghGalleries.com.

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly, www.RickByerly.com.
