Box Heart


The term used when the pith (soft core occurring in the structural center of wood) falls entirely within the four faces of a piece of wood anywhere in its length.


Our Mission


"Art is both love and understanding, the desire to give. It is not charity, which is the giving of the self. It is both the taking and giving of beauty, the turning out to the light the inner folds of the awareness of the spirit. It is the recreation of another plane of the realities of the world, the tragic and wonderful realities of earth and man and all the interrelations of these."


Written by Ansel Adams in a letter to his best friend, Cedric Wright in 1937




BoxHeart represents a diverse portfolio of emerging and mid-career artists. We accept submissions yearly from June 1st through August 1st via email. Submissions must include a cover letter that explains your interest in our gallery and a link to your website. We will contact you if we are interested in your work. We do not take appointments to review materials or view portfolios during gallery hours.



About Us


Nicole Capozzi and Joshua Hogan were born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and studied close to home at Carlow College (now Carlow University). Hogan earned his BA in 1997, Capozzi in 1998, focusing primarily on painting. In 2001, they married and opened BoxHeart Expressions. As a gallery owners in Pittsburgh’s east end for 14 years, Capozzi and Hogan have curated, coordinated, and hosted over 200 exhibitions for regional, national, and international artists providing an outlet for conceptually engaged and aesthetically resolved exhibitions that both reflect contemporary art issues and are relevant to the community. Working in Pittsburgh’s Bloomfield neighborhood, they are proud to exhibit emerging and mid-career artists whose artwork exemplifies the diversity and originality of contemporary art. Named by The Culture Trip as one of Pittsburgh’s “10 Best Contemporary Galleries”, BoxHeart recently exhibited alongside 46 international galleries in Toronto’s 2015 “Love Art Fair”. Hogan continues to exhibit his abstract, contemporary paintings regionally and nationally. He is also represented by UGallery (CA) and Wendover Art Group (FL).
