If You See Kay at Artform Gallery, Lower Burrell PA

If You See Kay

This art show that takes a look at the most infamous of words in the English language and how it is used in our society. The queen mother of cursing; it is considered vulgar, taboo, obscene, controversial and yet a huge part of our culture. The word is at the very center of our 1st amendment free speech rights. It's used everywhere from Hollywood, to the school yard, to the Senate floor of Washington DC.

Furthermore it is used in every way possible. It can be a verb, adverb, noun, adverb, adjective interjection, noun, infix, and as a command; it can be substituted for any word in a sentence. Truly, this is the most magical of words with the power to affect people like no other.

The show opens at Artform Gallery & Tattoo on Saturday Februrary 19 from 6-11pm. Admission is free and refreshments will be served. Artforms is located at 2603 Leechburg Rd. In Lower Burrell.

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.
