Brown, Norman, self-taught African American Artist, grew up in the Hill District and had his first one-man show in 1978. Holding a Master’s in Special Education and Bachelor’s in Elementary Education, he is retired from teaching disabled students within Pittsburgh Board of Public Education. His background in modern dance, nature, primitive designs and color, and some splash of paint or hint of images from other artists inspire his art. His works of fantasies, still life, collages, drywall carvings and dance phrases hang in private and corporate collections in Pittsburgh and around the country. Represented by Michael Hertrich Art and Frame.
