Here’s a recent article interviewing Baron Batch about his life as a Pittsburgh artist. Baron, a former Pittsburgh Steeler has developed renown in another field, as a critically acclaimed painter. We are proud to be his packer & shipper of choice for all pieces going to galleries and collectors around the country.
We recently received some beautiful furniture and inside “white glove” delivered the pieces to a new restaurant opening in Pittsburgh. Trapuzzano Italian Chophouse hopes to open in December, depending on the liquor license transfer, in what had been the Elbow Room on Walnut Street in Shadyside. It’s a venture from the Trapuzzano family — John, Michael, Ben and Edmund — as well as Tony Ottaviani of Antonio’s Italian Chophouse of Morgantown, W.Va., and Ristorante Ottaviani in Cumberland, Md. The menu will feature spaghetti and meatballs, chicken Parmesan, veal or lamb chops, two or three cuts of steak, as well as rabbit and venison. The partners will be doing a full cosmetic renovation of the space, in particular the lounge, which will include a piano bar.

We have been pleased to help rising local artist, Vanessa German with the crating and shipping of her pieces to museums, galleries, and collectors across the country. Ms German was recently covered in a Huffington Post article where she talks about her “power doll” pieces and her community work with children. She has been chosen as a feature artist in the Crystal Bridges Museum’s State Of The Art exhibit and her works are also displayed at the Pavel Zoubok Gallery in NYC. Many of Ms German’s pieces are created from recycled artifacts found in her neighborhood. Her mixed media assemblages present special challenges in successfully packing, crating, and shipping, but we have risen to the challenge.
