For many years I worked in the theatre. From that former life I discovered a distinct advantage that performing artists have over visual artists--immediate feedback from the audience. If an audience enjoys a performance they applaud. If they find something funny, they laugh. And if they don't like the show, they boo. Or throw things. Or walk out. The visual artist doesn't have the opportunity to enjoy (or avoid) an audience reaction. I've never seen a gallery patron move from painting to painting politely applauding the artists' effort.

This site is designed to fill that void. Reviews will be posted and you, the audience, will be able to express your opinions, reactions and critiques of various exhibits in and around Pittsburgh. Just stay on point and keep the comments constructive.
First up: the Associated Artists at the Carnegie. Stay tuned.
