Gallery 4 in Shadyside, Looking Forward


Most out there (should) know how hard it is for an art gallery to survive. Most that keep their heads above water rely on other means of income whether that be framing, space rental or other services. I'm not aware of Gallery 4's specific situation but I see they are giving it a go via Pgh City Paper ads. Their upcoming shows for the year caught my attention to be sure:

March Salon Style Competition Release (contact gallery for more info)

April recent works for Shervin Iranshahr

April 29 Kentucky Ave School benefit

May recent works by Jesse Best

June new works by Shawn Roberts

August opening of Release winner

September recent works by Brian Holderman

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.
