Even though Pittsburgh was hit with a snowy, slushy night, we had a great turnout for Tom Gitterman's talk in our 3rd installment of the PGH Photo Fair's Speaker series. Tom brought dozens of examples -- from Roger Fenton to Ken Josephson -- to illustrate his thoughts on connoisseurship, pricing, process, and (most importantly) his passion for the medium. The goal of the series has been to encourage debate and conversation around photography, so it was a pleasure to hear Tom's talk peppered with questions and enthusiastic responses. Gitterman Gallery will be one of the 12 galleries featured in the PGH Photo Fair this May 18-19, so those who missed the talk will have another chance to speak with Tom about photography and the work he will be bringing to show.
Remember, the Speaker Series is every 2nd Wednesday of the month up to the time of the fair in May. Next up will be Fred and Laura Bidwell, noted collectors from the Cleveland area, at the Warhol on March 13th. A post dedicated to that event will be up soon.
