What a wonderful night it was! Months of planning, painting and meetings, culminated in a spectacular opening with over 150 guests in attendance. "Beauty and the Beast: Figures and Faces of Pittsburgh's Industrial Landscape" will run until September 1, 2012 at Galerie Werner in the Mansions on Fifth Hotel.
Each of the four artists contributed their vision of Pittsburgh, past and present. I focused on the neighborhoods surrounding the steel mills, some of them completely unchanged to this day.
Below are some of my paintings on display at "Beauty and the Beast", from top to bottom:
Stroll, 20 x 16"
Waiting, 40 x35"
My Castle, w/c, 29 x 35"
The Watchman, 32 x 25"
