Pittsburgh Society of Artists Celebrate the Season and their 45 Year History!

PITTSBURGH, PA – The Pittsburgh Society of Artists Guild (PSA), founded in 1965, celebrates 45 years with its annual exhibit this year, held in the heart of the city of Pittsburgh at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh –Gallery. During the year, many of the PSA exhibits are open to all artists and have a central idea, a concept, which applicants must be aware of in creating work for submission. The annual exhibit is for members only and artists can exhibit their choice in terms of concept and media. To wrap up 2010 the PSA welcomes the public to come to our annual members exhibition. On this 45th anniversary, PSA Charter Members Cynthia Cooley, Peter Calaboyias, F. Walter Jones (retired Shadyside Academy history teacher of David McCullough) , and past presidents of PSA Kathleen Zimbicki, Paula Garrick Klein and Judi Charlson will all have work in the exhibit.

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.
