The Gallery 4 is open Tuesday through Saturday 1- 8PM .

After a very successful premiere last September, The Gallery 4 is proud to welcome back Anthony Purcell. Purcell is a remarkable talent emerging from the consistently talented Pittsburgh art scene. With "Wunderball," Purcell explores ideas of symmetry, balance, and reflection as symbolic vessels for spiritual and intellectual expansion of the mind. The search, discovery, and practice of the golden ideal is rendered beautifully with the aid of Purcell's thoughtful brushstrokes and keen use of light and shadow. "Wunderball" is certain to give the viewer another delicious bite of what Anthony is best known for: delicate use of pattern, precise detail, and a mastery of form and figure. And, as with each new piece, a new way of looking at the big picture.

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.
