Carol Skinger 1

Currently exhibiting a solo art show of approximately 40 artworks at Cooper Siegel Community Library. Date of show has been extended to run from May 14, 2017 -late winter  2018. Most work is for sale and with each sale, the library benefits 25% . Look for original paintings, prints on the perimeter walls and greeting cards at the desk.

Publicity with images in four articles in  Pittsburgh Post Gazette, City Paper, Fox Chapel Living and the Herald has brought many new visitors to the art show at the library, and sales have been strong. Upcoming issues of In Community- Fox Chapel and Shady Ave will have the show listed. When a painting or print sells, the buyer takes it home immediately. New work is hung. I can say that even as art galleries vanish there appears to be very good support within the community for art! I greatly appreciate the publicity and so does Cooper Siegel Community Library.

In 2015 I received a nice award at Three Rivers Arts Festival for a series of paintings titled “Unscenic?” of mobile homes and trailers from Freyda Spira, Associate Curator of Drawings and Prints at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Read more.

In Spring 2016 the Duquesne Club purchased an archival print of my  drawing “Sixth Avenue Pittsburgh”. Read More.

Art is awesome but income too must come in and to that end Carol takes commissions for Custom House Portraits which you can see examples of here and learn about pricing. One interesting product she sells is an Historic Pictorial Map of Schenley Park in two sizes which she found in the 1980s  and added color and text to.  Some other themes in her art work are bicycles, river , and more bicycle with 3 sizes prints available.
