PGH Photo Fair: Fred & Laura Ruth Bidwell
Andy Warhol Museum
[ venue info
An impressive husband-and-wife team of art collectors discuss their collection.
Fred and Laura Ruth Bidwell began collecting photography in 1991, the year they married. They have since amassed a highly personal catalog of contemporary art by European and North American artists using photography in their work. Laura began her career as an artist with a painting major from the University of Akron and, after a career as a graphic designer, now works on photography, video and on-demand book projects. After graduating from Oberlin College with an art history major, Fred worked as a commercial photographer before moving into advertising.
Admission is free. Presented as part of a lecture program sponsored by PGH Photo Fair, an annual art fair in Pittsburgh promoting the discussion of photography within the contemporary and fine art market. For more information, call (412) 231-3169.
