Fourth Annual Allegheny West Art Show

Art Show + SaleSubmitted by Dennis Bergevin

The 4th annual Allegheny West Art Show and Sale was a resounding success thanks to all the artists, neighbors and friends who attended. A whopping $1,800+ was raised through generous donations and raffle ticket sales of donated artwork benefitting the Allegheny YMCA children’s Summer Day Camp program. Over 200 folks packed the art-filled space of the former Hipwell Flashlight Factory, graciously hosted again this year by owners Elaine Stone and Mitchell Schwartz.

Music, magnanimously mastered by DJ Dan Adam, delightfully accented the Friday evening opening party. Generous funds provided by Joe and Linda Iannotta, Holly Van Dine, and the AWCC, along with delicious food donated by the Allegheny Sandwich Shop – as well as neighbors and friends – helped make it a true community event.

Much gratitude goes to F. L. Haus Co. for donating the printing of the posters designed by the talented duo, Greg Coll and Doris Short. Many thanks to all who gave their time and expertise including Sara Beck Sweeney, Holly Pultz, Chris Siewers, Jonathan Steinhauser, Nicki Perfetti, Ritsu Shimizu, Barb Magee, Doug Schreck, Glenn Olcerst, Eleanor Coleman, Hillary Moser, and Ann Gilligan.

Art, Artists & Neighbors Create a Picture-Perfect Event

3rd Annual Art ShowApproximately 130 works of art were on display for the third annual Allegheny West Art Show, with the majority of the artists hailing from the Northside. Our neighborhood welcomed art in all shapes and sizes, and artists of all professional levels and backgrounds, working in a number of different mediums, including an Ikebana floral design (by neighbor Ritsu Shimizu). SMARTsolution Technologies, owned by neighbors Elaine and Mitchell, once again generously provided the perfect venue, newly expanded and improved this year. Two hundred and fifty guests enjoyed the diverse array of art. There was also delicious food provided by skilled neighborhood chefs, sandwiches from the Allegheny Sandwich Shop, and additional food and beverages, as well as retro DJ music made possible by a generous donation from Joe and Linda Ianotta. The Allegheny West Civic Council hosted this unique neighborhood event. Beyond being an enjoyable evening, an art raffle on opening night (benefitting the Northside Common Ministries) raised over $400.

Dennis Bergevin (show founder and producer) and Sara Beck Sweeney (co-producer) would like to thank all of the hardworking friends and neighbors that made this event possible, including: Doug Schreck, Cheryl Towers, Jonathan Steinhauser, Dan Bolick, Catherine Drapkin, Holly Pultz, Catena Bergevin, Eleanor Coleman, Shannon Pultz, Heather White, and the senior fine art students at CAPA. A special thank you to City Books and K. S. Kennedy for distributing art applications; F. L. Haus for printing our wonderful poster; and neighbors Doris Short and Greg Coll, of Gc Graphic Design, for skillfully designing it.
