PITTSBURGH, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Cohen & Grigsby, a business law firm with headquarters in Pittsburgh, PA and offices in Naples and Bonita Springs, FL, will help the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh (AAP) celebrate its centennial by hosting a reception at the law firm's art gallery, located inside its Pittsburgh office. The event is for invited guests and will be held on Thursday, February 11, 2010 at 5:30 p.m. at Cohen & Grigsby's downtown Pittsburgh offices (625 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh).
"AAP provided the inaugural exhibit when we opened Cohen & Grigsby's art gallery last year, and since its debut, the gallery has promoted local artists and has strengthened and enhanced the Pittsburgh region's flourishing art community," said Jack Elliott, president and CEO of Cohen & Grigsby. "We are pleased to help AAP celebrate this important milestone – their centennial – through this special event."
"AAP welcomes the partnership it has forged with Cohen & Grigsby, and we are delighted to be able to celebrate our centennial with the firm," added Kitty Spangler, vice president of Associated Artists of Pittsburgh. "ANTHOLOGY, the exhibit on display in the gallery since November 2009, featured the work of eight well-known local artists affiliated AAP. The exhibit was quite a success, and the gallery is truly a beautiful space."
Cohen & Grigsby's art gallery correlates closely with the firm's philosophy, a "Culture of Performance." The philosophy speaks to the firm's business model, ensuring that attorneys act as business counselors as well as legal advisors while also focusing on working smarter and more efficiently.
