a must-see at the Digging Pitt Gallery

If you're in or near PIttsburgh, you should stop by the Digging Pitt Gallery this weekend, for the closing reception of Marci Gehring's show. The painting shown above (borrowed from Digging Pitt's website) is a floor to ceiling piece that is really quite wonderful. The artist manages to create images with very intensely worked surfaces that reward close inspection, while still working on a very large scale. Great stuff! The closing reception is June 2, from 6 - 9, and the gallery is open Thursday through Sunday if you can't make the reception.

And, should you be thinking a little further ahead, you might also want to jot down June 16 in your calendar book. That's the date for the opening reception of Inside Out Six: Selections from the Flat Files - Side II, also at Digging Pitt. This is a show curated from Digging Pitt's extensive flat files, and I'm delighted to say that I'll be one of the fourteen artists included in the exhibition.
