To Pittsburgh, Western PA Artists: The Pittsburgh Artist Registry

There are 2 worst case scenarios here. One, you haven't registered at the Pittsburgh Artist Registry or two, you registered and did not upload any images of artwork or link to a site with your images. Or you checked all the medium categories and have never ventured into those mediums....

Also, make sure you update your email address if it has changed!

Art consultants, galleries, and organizations etc check the registry. Get it together!

(I'm checking it right now for sculptors for a scuplture walk project.)

WHAT ARTISTS ARE ELIGIBLE TO JOIN THE REGISTRY?

In order to join the registry, artists must be full-time residents of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Mercer, Lawrence, Somerset, Venango, Washington, or Westmoreland counties. Artists of all disciplines and at all career levels, from emerging to professional are welcome.

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.
