International Images Ltd: Constance Menniti and Harry Demel

International Images Ltd. is pleased to announce the opening of two new exhibits during the Summer Music Series Friday, June 17th between 6:00 and 8:00 PM. 
This is a night where all of Sewickley can come together as a community and enjoy various foods, music and works of art from a number of local businesses.

International Images Ltd. has brought together two artists with very different identities and visions to create one dynamic show. Constance Menniti is a local favorite, showcasing acrylic and mixed media pieces from her series, “Kiss of Colors”. 
Constance has exhibited her images in the Bird in the Hand Gallery, Sera Sera and in the House of Two Sisters Gallery. Highly inspired by spirituality and religious symbolism, “Kiss of Colors” features impressionist Madonna imagery, with vivid layers of depth and color. In contrast, Harry Demel (Hawkeye) will be showcasing his organic landscape series, “Industrial Forest”. Fusing nature landscapes with industrial glues and materials, Demel’s series explores organic imagery with a textured, industrial technique.

In addition, the gallery will be featuring the summer photography exhibit from Rafaelo Kazakov and Michel Hersen, “Beautiful/Gritty: Nature/City” as well as designs by Frieda Mara Couture by Lydia Bolli. Bolli is known for designing original custom made clothing to fit each customer’s unique taste. International Images will be showcasing a variety of Lydia’s pieces.

These two exhibitions will continue through July 2011. 
Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 11 am to 4 pm or by appointment.

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.
