Gaia Fine Arts

Lori A. Kashellack is a local artist in the Pittsburgh area.

 Lori has a passion for making unique, original art using recycled materials, and found objects to create one of a kind pieces.  In her words...

 "I would have my pictures framed at a professional frame store, only to pay high prices without any originality. This is when I discovered there is much beauty in objects that can be restored to their original state with a little love, and creativity."

 "I also enjoy making custom pieces of art to display using your favorite photos and special moments. This particular display celebrates photography taken in Pittsburgh, with contributing photographer Gabriela Maria Rodriguez.

 Lori has had her art displayed at Gallerie CHIZ and Percolate.
