The Blogger Show, in cyber- and meatspace.

John Morris, director of the Digging Pitt Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA, has organized an exhibition of 34 artists who all share a common interest in extending their studio practice through blogging. The show is spread between 4 galleries and 2 cities - the Agni Gallery in New York City, the Panza Gallery in Millvale, PA, and Digging Pitt and Digging Pitt Too here in Pittsburgh. And I'm delighted and honored to tell you that I'm one of the artists in the exhibition.

Besides having my Zero Sum Art Project included in the Agni Gallery and Digging Pitt exhibitions, FIMP is also hosting the cyberspace exhibition of the Blogger Show. Visit the show online to see works by all of the artists involved, along with links to all of their blogs. I'm excited about the way this exhibition is spread out over space and time - this seems to mirror the nature of the blogosphere and its goals quite nicely. The fact that the one place you can see work from all of the venues at once is on the web seems very natural (if anything can seem "natural" in cyberspace!).

The first part of the show to open is the exhibition in New York at the Agni Gallery - here's the vital information:

Agni Gallery
170 East 2nd Street, Storefront #3
New York NY 10009
November 3 - 30
Public Reception:

Every artist participating in the Blogger Show will have a piece at the Agni Gallery.

A week later the Pittsburgh Shows open, and you can find them here:

Digging Pitt Gallery
4417 Butler Street
Digging Pitt Too
45th & Plummer Streets

It would be great to see you at the shows. Be sure to visit the online show as well. And tell the artists what you think - this exhibition has ample opportunity for "comments"!
