Time For A Change: Pittsburgh Art Blog To Change It Up

The Pittsburgh Art Blog will be changing within the month to an article based cultural blog covering the Pittsburgh region's visual and performing arts as well as locavore and green aspects. A meeting will be taking place within the month where several potential contributors discuss the goals of a new blog and give it a new name.

You can still submit visual art events for consideration but they may only be briefly covered in a weekly post entitled Upcoming Visual Art Events.

To make sure your art event is listed check out Pittsburgh Is Art and the Pittsburgh City Paper, as well as other publications, both print-based and online.

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.
