Rochelle Blumenfeld: Hill District Paintings

April 13, 2017 to July 30, 2017

Through July 30, 2017

Free and open to the public

A recent discussion with my grandson made me think that I wanted to tell my grandchildren more about the places where both the Fairman and Reznik families lived and worked when they came to America from Russia at the turn of the century. I thought I would show them what I remembered of the Hill District in the late nineteen thirties. Through these paintings, future generations can see the places my Zadie Fairman and Zadie Reznik lived and how they started a new life in Pittsburgh. —Rochelle Blumenfeld

Known as an abstract painter, Blumenfeld recently completed a series of
paintings depicting her family’s businesses, Sam Reznik & Sons and Fairman
Wallpaper & Paint Company, located in Pittsburgh’s Hill District. She spent her childhood between the two stores, and her paintings vividly capture their
characteristics as well as the overall neighborhood vibe during the Hill’s
heyday as a “crossroads to the world. “
