I was so surprised when a friend clued me in on these reviews. Any contact I've had with Jennifer has led me to believe that she is an amazing person who does a LOT for the community, for very little in return. I am sorry that you two people had a negative experience, but:
To balance the scales a little bit, here are MY experiences with the gallery: No, it is not the most polished atmosphere in Pittsburgh, but I don't believe it's intended to be. It is cozy, is an amazing place for local artists who want/deserve a chance, is a great space for the music events I've seen there, and is a gathering place for many community events as well.
It is an important part of Penn Avenue, and I cannot stress enough how positive my experiences have been there. I have been to gallery openings, private parties, music shows and meetings. I think it has great vibes.
(By the way, the back and forth, messageboard style bantering on there is clogging up this area and is NOT a review. Write a comprehensive review and move on, people.)
