Description

Maser Galleries boasts the largest inventory of paintings and limited edition works on canvas and paper in the city. Much of the art at Maser Galleries is contemporary, but the collection is eclectic, including sports art, traditional oil paintings, and work by the finest national and international masters.

The galleries were first established in 1970 at the Seven Springs Mountain Resort. Founder Ron Maser joined the art business in 1966 as the Pittsburgh manager of Arts International, a Chicago based gallery created by the brilliant art dealer, Jack Soloman, to distribute original oil paintings.

In the early 70's Maser Galleries was on the ground floor for the first marketing of the graphic giants: Leroy Neiman, Normal Rockwell, Erte, and Simbari. Throughout the 70's Maser Galleries operated in Seven Springs, Shadyside and downtown Pittsburgh. In the 80's Maser Galleries added a publishing division involving two of America's greatest illustrators, Robert Peak and Bernie Fuchs. Later local artists Nat Youngblood, John Shryock, and Tom Mosser joined in the publishing endeavors.
