The 2011 Lawrenceville Blossom Tour May 7 & 8 2011

The 2011 Lawrenceville Blossom Tour is a celebration of Spring and Lawrenceville’s dedication to local goods & services! Travel down Butler street on May 7 & 8 to see all that our local artisans, craftsmakers, businesses, bakers, and more have to offer!

Sustainability starts at home, and what better way to take action than to plant your own garden? At each official Blossom Tour stop, we’re giving out free seed packets! These seeds are responsibly and sustainably grown and the selection is specially designed for our climate. If you plant all of them, you’ll have a bountiful garden that can feed an entire family!

Don’t forget: Sunday, May 8 is Mother’s Day! Celebrate with mom by going shopping, picking up seeds, and touring Lawrenceville shops and galleries!

The initial Blossom Tour Logo was designed by Jay Bernard. Jay Design Soaps & Gifts is open for business at 4603 Butler St.

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.
