Second Saturdays Starts April 9 2011


The fourth season debuts this Saturday, April 9!


Sharing dance, light and music together in a truly unique jazz-lounge/performance-gallery atmosphere, each second Saturday of the month (April-August) features a evening open to the public of ongoing improvisational performances and live multimedia experimentations from the company and special guests.

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.
