What would you love to see more of in the Pittsburgh art scene?
I think that what I'd like to see more of is already happening, so that's really exciting. I feel that some of the larger institutions are starting to focus more on the local artists that they weren't doing ten years ago when I came back to the area. In the fiber arts guilds, they're doing mentorships where anyone who is interested in a certain medium can get together and critique and learn from each other in a setting that's informal. They also offer critiques, which is an idea I like because, again, when you're out of the school setting, it's nice to get feedback from people. When you apply for a show, you either get in or not, you don't really get a critique.
