Brittany Reilly, executive director of The Irving and Aaronel deRoy Gruber Foundation, suggests three galleries where Pittsburghers could look to extend, or start, their art collections.
Silver Eye Center for Photography
4808 Penn Avenue
This gallery focuses on contemporary photography, and along with allowing patrons to purchase the works from their revolving exhibitions, Silver Eye offers workshops and classes for artists of all skill levels.
527 N. Taylor Avenue
Nestled in the Mexican War Streets just a stone’s throw away from the Mattress Factory and Randyland, Lexi Bishop’s recently opened here Gallery features a rotating cast of contemporary exhibitions from local and national artists alike.
5106 Penn Avenue
Founded in 2013 by Penn State grads who felt their work didn’t fit into Pittsburgh’s conventional art world, Bunker Projects doubles as an experimental gallery and nonprofit artist residency for up-and-coming artists, allowing them to grow in an intimate, eccentric environment.
