Boulevard Gallery in Verona adds new, virtual spaces for 2014

Boulevard Gallery owner and curator Rhoda Worf always is looking for new ways to bring arts and culture to the area.

A new year will bring new ventures to the Verona art gallery, located on Allegheny River Boulevard.

In addition to Boulevard's featured exhibits, which change each month, Worf this year will offer the “Different Strokes Gallery,” which will rotate every two months and expand on the gallery's traditionally smaller feature: pottery, woodcrafting, jewelry designers and glass works.

“In February, the main gallery is a photography exhibit, but for people who prefer other mediums, we'll also have this new gallery which they can visit,” Worf said.

In addition to the new exhibit space, all of the gallery's walls have been repainted to create a warm interior ideal for drawing attention to the art.

Visitors to both the gallery itself and its website also can view the “Virtual Gallery,” an online collection of works created by local artists.

“We're not limiting anyone,” Worf said. “If someone is a sculptor, they could submit pictures of their sculptures for the gallery.”

All artwork in the Virtual Gallery will be numbered, and, Worf said, if someone browsing the gallery sees a piece they would like to purchase, “we can arrange for the artist to bring it down for a closer viewing.”

Next month, the main gallery will host photographer John Craig's “Pittsburgh at Night” exhibit.

An opening-night reception will take place on Feb. 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. Regular gallery hours are noon to 4 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

For more information, call 412-828-1031 or visit Boulevardgallery.com.
