Silver Eye Photo Club

dig deep / champion art / have fun

The Silver Eye Photo Club loves to connect with photography through deep, personal–and fun!–experiences.

The Photo Club meets five times each year to share a drink and bite (when we can) and visit artists’ studios for frank conversations, go on candid exhibition tours with curators - sometimes even before they open to the public - and other events that explore photography’s big ideas in ways that are meaningful, intimate, and accessible. Plus all Photo Club members get a sweet embroidered patch designed by Elana Schlenker!

Become a member with a gift of $500 or more to Silver Eye.

What I Learned: Sasha Phyars-Burgess
Online, July 15th, 5:30pm est
The opening of 2021 Silver Eye Fellowship Winner, Sasha Phyars-Burgess’s artist statement reads: “I spent nearly 8 months in Austin, a west side neighborhood in Chicago. What I learned was this, it is very easy to sit from afar and look at a people and feel sympathy, maybe even empathy if you are good at it. It is much harder to sit with them and listen. It is much harder to understand that some life choices are not really choices at all. It is even harder to not pass judgement, to not turn to stone, but to sit, to pay attention and to try to just be.” Join us for an online studio visit and conversation and learn about Sasha’s work photographing, writing, and fighting for social and racial justice.

The Very Very First Look at Radial Survey, Vol. II
November 2nd, 7pm, Silver Eye
In 2019 the first edition of our Radial Survey biennial survey brought together the work of twelve incredible photographers working in a 300 mile radius of Pittsburgh. It was conceived not as an effort to identify a regional style or movement, but as a proposition: that working in this region encourages artists to engage with logics, flows, histories, and mythologies that differ from those defining the faster-moving densities of very large cities. The second edition will build on these ideas, with a new group of artists, and the Photo Club will have the chance to see it all before anyone else. Seriously, the paint will still be drying during a special guided tour with the curators and a few of the artists.
