Michael Berger Gallery Show Extensions til March 12, 2011




There are two events:

Extension of Heidi Taillefer's "Playing with Fire" at Michael Berger Gallery

Open Hours: Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12-5pm until March 12th 2011

Taillefer’s fantastical paintings & drawings meld imagination, mythology & technology—with a nod to the baroque. Exquisitely executed machine parts cavort with nature. Technological & sensual bodies fuse. The tension is beautiful & horrible, macabre & graceful. Taillefer's work will be on display for a limited time through March 12th on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12-5pm at Michael Berger Gallery. Entrance to the exhibition is free of charge and is suitable for all ages! For more information please visit michaelbergergallery.com or call 412-441-4282.

Extension of Naijun Zhang's "The Examiner" at Michael Berger Gallery

Open Hours:
Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12-5pm until March 12th

Zhang’s masterfully rendered scenes explore Chinese social construct & identity through appropriated photojournalist imagery. These intimate-yet-distant works portray quiet everyday moments where East & West merge, yet maintain their unique cultural aesthetics. Zhang's work will be on display for a limited time through March 12th on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12-5pm at Michael Berger Gallery. Entrance to the exhibition is free of charge and is suitable for all ages! For more information please visit michaelbergergallery.com or call 412-441-4282.

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.
