Welcome to the PITTSBURGH Society of Artists Website!
The P I T T S B U R G H Society of Artists was founded in May 1965. With more than 300 members, whose work represents all visual-arts media. In 2015 PSA marked its 50th year dedicated to providing its members with opportunities to exhibit their art, both in the Pittsburgh area and beyond southwestern Pennsylvania.
In addition to providing exhibition opportunities, the Society since its inception has been dedicated to encouraging creative thinking about the arts through public dialogue. At our general membership meetings, held twice a year, the guild engages speakers to explore some aspect of the arts. The general public has always been invited to these stimulating programs.
Any individual eighteen years old or older who lives within 150 miles of Pittsburgh may apply for membership by submitting three original pieces of art to a screening by the Board of Directors. Screenings are held in the spring and fall of each year.

FIGURATIVE DESIGN: Redesigning Light
An intuitive approach to using the white of the paper.
Replicating the natural light source as seen in photo references is often done for good reason. Some images are so stunning that the artist is highly stimulated to paint the scene as it is. If the artist was tasked, however, with redesigning the light for the sake of a story or mood, what might that look like? To go a step further, what would it look like if the white of the paper was used as a design tool; to focus attention, direct the action, balance or off-balance the composition, or promote contrast?
