PITTSBURGH, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cohen & Grigsby, a business law firm with headquarters in Pittsburgh, PA and an office in Bonita Springs, FL, is pleased to showcase the works of two Pittsburgh-area artists with the latest art exhibit at the C&G Gallery in the firm's headquarters in Pittsburgh (EQT Plaza, 625 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA). "Faces: Looking Back, The Collected Works of Laura Jean McLaughlin and Bob Ziller" features some of the most revered canvases and sculptures in McLaughlin and Ziller's impressive bodies of work. Laura Jean McLaughlin and Bob Ziller are frequent collaborators, and many of the works they have exhibited throughout the United States focus on faces. The exhibit will be on display at the firm's offices starting on October 6, beginning with a private artist's reception.
"The works of Laura Jean McLaughlin and Bob Ziller are a truly fascinating collection of art," said Jack Elliott, president and CEO of Cohen & Grigsby. "We're fortunate to have the unique talents of Laura Jean and Bob as part of the Pittsburgh arts community, and we look forward to showcasing their talents at our newest exhibit in the C&G Gallery."
Laura Jean McLaughlin's work has been exhibited in more than 100 galleries and museums, including the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Mobile Museum of Art, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Baltimore Institute of Art and the State Museum of Pennsylvania. She earned her Master of Fine Arts in ceramics from West Virginia University.
Bob Ziller's art has been featured in more than 80 exhibitions throughout the U.S., including The Hunter Museum of American Art, The Norton Museum of Art and the Chicago Cultural Center. In Pittsburgh, Ziller's work has been shown at The Andy Warhol Museum, the Mattress Factory, Three Rivers Arts Festival (during which he received the Festival Award for Sculpture) and the Mendelson Gallery.
With this most recent art exhibit, Cohen & Grigsby continues to show its support for Pittsburgh area artists. When the firm re-established its headquarters in the city's Cultural District, the office's reception area was set aside as a gallery where local artisans could feature their works. To date, the firm has hosted several public art exhibitions and has partnered with organizations such as the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh. Earlier this year, the firm showcased the works of renowned artist Burton Morris with an exhibit titled, "POP Into the Mind of Burton Morris." The exhibit presented a retrospective of Morris' work, from his iconic Pop Art canvases to his "Hi-Tech" representations created in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University's Entertainment Technology Center (ETC).
Additionally, Cohen & Grigsby is now in the fourth year of a partnership with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust as the presenting sponsor of the "Trust Presents" series, which brings a diverse array of entertainment to Pittsburgh's Cultural District.
Members of the public are encouraged to view this new exhibit. To make an appointment, please call 412-297-4900.
