LOCALpittsburgh — Gallery Roundup February 2023


“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.” — Andrew Wyeth

“The color of springtime is in the flowers, the color of winter is in the imagination.” — Terri Guillemets
