Society for Contemporary Craft annual Out of Hand! fundraiser

All of the info is here.

Come join the fun and help support the Society for Contemporary Craft as we celebrate the role the hand plays in the creative process! Our annual Out of Hand! fundraiser, taking place on Saturday, April 2th from 6:30-10:30 p.m., will be an evening to remember.

Hand-packed with activities, guests will get to make their own handicrafts and watch local artists as they create distinctive pieces while trying their hand at our silent auction. Visitors will also get to raise their hands in the live auction to bid on spectacular craft objects that have been handmade by nationally known artists. This is not your ordinary fundraiser!

Benefit Co-Chairs will be Alex and Michael Paul, and Petra Fallaux and Paul Rosenblatt. We invite you to join them in supporting Out of Hand! by purchasing your tickets today. Call 412.261.7003 x12 to reserve your tickets today.

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.
