surface and rigor at mendelson gallery, mark gualtieri, will giannotti, rick byerly

In the over 3 years I've done this blog I've rarely plugged what I'm doing (save some ads a few years back). Well, I'm gonna shout this one from the rooftops since it's the first exhibit I'll be in since over a year (and will continue to hold back what I exhibit and show in general.)

Mark Gualtieri

Through the use of industrial alkyd and resin,
Mark continues to explore the theme of growth and decay
that has been his preoccupation for the last several years.

Will Giannotti

Will’s primary medium is wood and he incorporates
traditional and nontraditional techniques to create work
which contains narrative aspects and references
to the material itself and art history.


Rick uses photography as a medium to explore the language
of texture amidst the unusual in nature.

Rick Byerly is a fine art photographer who trained at Pittsburgh Filmmakers in 2001 and started his full time commitment in 2007. Over 300 of his limited edition, archival prints exist in personal and business collections across the United States, including Google CEO Eric Schmidt. PNC Financial Services recently acquired twenty-six of Rick’s photography prints for their collection.

For the exhibit, Surface and Rigor, Rick’s archival prints of rock formations continue his pursuit of exploring the language of texture amidst the unusual in nature. Rick traveled to various parts of Utah and Hawaii’s Big Island to find unusual rock formations.

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