Promoting Visual Art Events without images of some of the work is absurd...


It continues to be absurd but people, galleries, and orgs promoting visual art events without providing images of the some of the work still don't get it. I've seen this to be the case with individual artists, galleries of many different sizes, as well as the large non-profits...

It's visual art people...

And for those who go to the trouble to do a poster/image promoting the show and it doesn't include some of the work being exhibited.... Really?

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.
