Gallerie Chiz in Shadyside, Art Show Opening

susan and joan

Artists Susan Middleman and Joan Brindle. Classmates reunited at Susan’s Opening Reception Friday night.

Class of 1965-  they met as freshmen at Carnegie Tech

(now Carnegie Mellon University) Pittsburgh PA

Joan and I were art teachers in the Pittsburgh Public Schools and then Joan was my Art Supervisor. We became friends. That’s how I got invited to her friend Susan’s Art Opening Reception at Gallerie Chiz. The large oil paintings on paper are Susan’s art work.

I met the artist Susan Middleman through Joan.

 

IMG_2991Hosted by Gallerie Chiz owner/director Ellen Chisdes Neuberg who provided the space for connections. I knew she was the gallery owner as she came to introduce herself. I was inquiring if her plate held a sweet or a savory.

I thought it might be a chocolate or a meatball but it was a baby bella mushroom.

Ellen sported a cool purple outfit, unique art jewelry and turquoise glasses. Plus she wasn’t carrying a purse.  Ellen and one other person would have been selected “best dressed” if I were from the paper.

Glass and found objects artist Elizabeth Fortunato showed her work at the art opening reception this evening, too. The show is open through October 10th.

  1. The gallery itself is quite unique. Good luck to Susan on her showing. I would love to get there and check it out. We’ll see. There is some travel in the Reinfeld’s near future.

  2. So sorry we were not there at the same time, Ruth!! These photos and your comments are terrific. Going to forward to a firned of Susan’s – I’m sure she’ll feel as if she did not miss the Opening, and will esp. appreciate seeing full-length Susan! I agree with your “best dressed” for Ellen!
