TRAF_2017_BannerIt’s Arts Fest time Pittsburgh! Come on out and celebrate the arts, in all of their mediums this year at the 58th annual Three Rivers Arts Festival in Downtown Pittsburgh, PA. 10 days of FREE music & art!

Forget your preconception of a typical music or arts festival. This is anything but ordinary. Here are just a few reasons why you need to mark your calendar for the 58th annual Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival, June 2-11, 2017, an iconic celebration of the arts in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania:

IT’S FREE. Yes, free, as in no tickets are required. As one of the largest and most-celebrated FREE arts festivals in the world, we welcome you for 10 days of free music, theater, dance, public art installations, gallery exhibitions, a visual artist market, creative activities, food, and more. How is this possible? The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, non-profit producer of the event, is supported by a growing community of individuals, foundations, and corporations who believe in the arts and this iconic Pittsburgh celebration.

We will be in the celebrated Artists Market for the 1st 5-day session (only!) from Friday June 2nd – Tuesday June 6th, every day from 11am – 8pm on Gateway Plaza at BOOTH 68 Between One & Two Gateway Center . (See maps below.) We will have lots of new art prints in tow, as well as rock posters and more. The Artists Market features a very rigorously juried selection of 300+ artisans selling handmade, fine art and fine crafts from literally, all over the country. Artists change throughout the Three Rivers Festival as well so don’t miss out as every artist participates for a varying number of days so, beyond what you find on opening day, you can discover the work of new artists on Saturday, 6/3; Wednesday, 6/7; Friday, 6/9; and Saturday, 6/10.

New print released: Hello Birds 2011 Calendar!

Hand screenprinted, 9 color Hello Birds 2011 Calendar. (Click to purchase or for more info!)

 

Calendars quite something, right? They help us keep track of time, but they can also help set a mood for the day. Let’s face it, of all of the things that we look at each & every day? A least a few should make you happy just by eyeballing ’em. My 2011 “Hello Birds” Calendar aims to do just that. It’s just a fresh new day with some bird friends, saying “Hello.” Pretty good start already!

Our 2011 “Hello Birds” Calendar comes in 2 versions, the one that you see here on crisp white paper, and next week there will also be a version on a wintery Spearmint to be released on 12/9/10. Your choice!

This happy day scene is my 9-color, hand screenprinted silkscreen print, loaded with overprints from my hand mixed poppy red, sun orange, sky cyan and forest green water based screenprinting inks. The extra bit of magic? From 4 colors pulled, I get 9 by layering inks to make new colors. I love screenprinting! All 2011 “Hello Birds” Calendar prints are hand signed. Limited Edition of 75. Size: 12 x 19 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight. $20
