Yesterday, the event raised $1,650 for the local charity thanks to the help of 22 artists participating in the show.
"Making food and stuff is cool, but having the venue and vessel to showcase our incredibly talented friends with the end result being able to benefit our community is bar none," say owners Lauren and Matt Christie, the latter just named Best Chef in Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh City Paper's Best of Pittsburgh readers' poll.
Artists included Jewels Antonio, Nick Shriner, Michael Cipollone, Matt Spahr, Dante Lombardi, Kenn Fadeley, Gabrielle Fisch, Hilary Zozula, and more.
"We are lucky enough to be in a position to be able to give back, and we try to do so whenever we can, especially when it directly benefits children," Christie says, adding they chose Big Brothers and Big Sisters because the donations "will go directly towards helping children in the community."
The owners say they plan to continue to host more art shows, which will be listed both online and on the restaurant's Instagram page.
