The Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council needs you! The Arts Council is an “arts service organization” which means they exist not to create art, but to help others do so by offering many levels of support for artists. They have a membership of over 250 organizations and nearly 3,000 artists. They need your help because the walls of their new office are screaming for art. Of course that art does need to consist of work by local and regional visual artists. Better still, not only do they want to display your art, they want you to sell your work. “Art on the Walls” is a bi-annual, solo exhibition opportunity for individual artists in the greater Pittsburgh region. The exhibition is free and is open to the public during regular business hours.

They do need to be able to display the work on their walls so they’re looking for printmaking, photography, fiber, painting and drawing formats. (Lightweight sculptures will be considered if they can be hung.) Your application must be received by 5:00 PM on Friday, August 19, 2011. Click here to apply.
