Handmade Arcade April 16 2011


Handmade Arcade is excited to announce a new central location in an appropriately green-for-spring venue: the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown. Shoppers can expect all the great handcrafted, indie merchandise, plus:
• Free admission
• Over 100 vendors, local and from out-of-state
• Easy to get to: close to many bus lines and the T; on-site garage
parking; also accessible by foot, bike or even watercraft
• More space than ever: wide aisles, extra vendor room
• Early Birdie passes
• Refreshments on-site
• Hands-on activities

Handmade Arcade is Pittsburgh’s largest indie craft fair, now in its seventh year. The annual Handmade Arcade was created to give grassroots, independent crafters an opportunity to show and sell their wares, and to provide an alternative to traditional craft and art fairs.

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.
