We've started selling at GalleriE CHIZ in the Shadyside area of Pittsburgh! What an interesting place with such a broad range of art! Creations such as the usual paintings and sculptures to gorgeous handmade books to "off the wall" artistic brassieres. This gallery really has a little bit of everything.
Friday night they had their opening reception for the"Character Studies: Costumed & Articulated"featuring Dennis Bergevin. Each sculpture captures the character from well known operas. Their clothing looked like something out of a movie with every inch adorned with the smallest details. The hair for each piece looked to be real and was artistically crafted for each individual character's persona. And my favorite were the faces on these pieces. These were sculpted out of red clay which created a darker appearance and gave them an almost haunting look. Incredible! Please check out the photos on the website to see these amazing works of art.
That, of course, was only the highlight. Ellen Chisdes, the gallery's owner, has such an eclectic array of pieces that make your eyes dance with joy! Bright colors and different textures for major eye candy. Even the bathroom was decorated!! And take a look at the entrance to her gallery. Wow!
And here are the Bei Mondi pieces currently offered at GalleriE CHIZ!
