Apr 14, 2004 - This Friday...A Big night for Photography in PIXburgh

Friends, Romans, Countrymen:


    Just so you know of two hot and happenin' photo exhibitions opening THIS FRIDAY...that's 48 hours from now, for those of you still installing your work.....pass this along to any photo-centric folk who might be interested.


    The first is the group show "PIN UP" at the Cultural Trust's new downtown gallery SPACE at 812 Liberty Avenue. I actually have an installation in this show, one of my rare gallery appearances, so I hope you'll come and see it and get your drink on at the  OPENING RECEPTION,  5 TO 8 P.M.


    Afterwards, I plan to hightail it on up to Oakland to catch the opening for the new Pittsburgh Filmmakers exhibition by my pal Rob Long and Dror Yaron of the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild. Their RECEPTION is from 7 to 9 p.m., so if you plan your night well, you can easily make both events and save yourself the cost of dinner by getting your grub on with all the free wine and snacks.


    Specifics for both events follow. Hope to see a bunch of you out and about. The weather's SUPPOSED to be nice!


    Three Cheers For Spring!  Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! 







 PIN UP Showcases photographic work by 23 area image-makers

SPACE , 812 Liberty Avenue, 412-325-7723
April 6, 2004, Pittsburgh, PA…SPACE, Pittsburgh’s newest visual arts gallery located in the heart of the Cultural District, is pleased to present PIN UP, a showing of photographic work by 23 area photographers.  Murray Horne, Curator of Wood Street Galleries and Jen Saffron, photographer and videographer, co-curated this survey exhibition culled from local darkrooms, computers, and studios.   PIN UP runs April 16 – June 19, 2004.  Opening reception featuring DJ Soy Sos on Friday, April 16 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.   An artist talk with pinhole photographers Lorraine Vullo and Michael Picarsic III will take place on Saturday, May 8 from 1 – 3 p.m. in the gallery. 

Both established and emergent artists exhibit works ranging from pinhole to digital, small to large scale, political to abstract - the show is a slice of the Pittsburgh photography community and showcases the diverse nature of the medium.  PIN UP does not attempt to define, highlight, or redefine photographic constructs or genres but rather offer a fresh space for pluralism.
