Stephanie Armbruster's solo show, In Search of Something More

Stephanie Armbruster's solo show, In Search of Something More, opening on July 15th and running through September 11th at 709 Penn Gallery.

The opening party will take place during the Pittsburgh downtown gallery crawl on Friday July 15th from 5:30-9:00 p.m. with drinks and awesome music by DJ's Paul Fleetwood and Aaron Clark.

The show will be on view through September 11th and the gallery is open daily Wednesda...y through Sunday - you are welcome to stop by any time and I am happy to meet for gallery visits.

Visually influenced by street art, design and documentary photography, this new series of encaustic and mixed medium paintings is a reckless commentary inspired by the absurdities of urban life, random encounters and the tension of the city in a state of flux. Recollections of cheap rent, budget glam, underground music and demolition come together in a stream of consciousness rant of overbearing typography and architectural elements.

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.
