Alternate Histories announces Christmas Cards, new Great American Cities
series in time for Holiday Guides

Pittsburgh, PA

After a wildly successful show at WildCard store and gallery in Lawrenceville, local artist Matthew Buchholz is expanding his “Alternate Histories” line of monsters crossed with vintage images just in time for the holidays.

The Friendship-based artists is debuting a new set of four Christmas Cards, each featuring a homespun, holiday scene with a monster or alien wreaking havoc amidst it. Perfect for the sci-fi lover or someone who enjoys not taking the holidays so seriously!

And after great demand for the Alternate Histories prints of Pittsburgh, Buchholz is introducing a new series “Great American Cities.” Featuring historic cities like New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, and more, this series brings the vision of sea monsters, robots, and skyscraper-sized monsters to a new set of towns.

Holiday cards sell in packs of eight for $16 each. Prints are $20 each.

All work is available in Pittsburgh at WildCard, 4209 Butler St, 15201 (www.wildcardpgh.com)

All work is available online at www.alternatehistories.etsy.com

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.
