William Pfahl-Fine Art


I am a long time member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh (AAP) and also the Pittsburgh Society of Artists. I am a regular attendee of open model at Panza Gallery in Millvale, and contribute to shows there.

Artistic inspiration for me involves direct observation. I enjoy plein air painting and believe that it is key to my growth in painting any subject.

I have taught summer painting Workshops to teens and adults at the Touchstone Center for Crafts in Farmington, PA. I also taught art in Pittsburgh Public Schools for 12 years. Recently I have demonstrated oil painting at Community College of Allegheny County and art leagues, in Bethel Park, Penn Hills, West Hills and Beaver.
