|For over 30 years, Silver Eye has brought the best in contemporary photography and related media to Pittsburgh and now we are preparing to take a giant step forward. Our stunning new gallery is located in the Penn Avenue Arts District on the corner of Penn Avenue and Mathilda Street, and will be designed by The Design Alliance Architects. Our new space will continue Silver Eye’s tradition of sharing contemporary photography that is beautiful, relevant, and compelling. It will also include a bookstore featuring the best of independent and small-press photo books, curated by Spaces Corners.
For the first time ever, Silver Eye will have a studio dedicated to education and fine art photography printmaking called the Lab @ Silver Eye. This facility will be like nothing else in the city–a 900 square foot state-of-the-art digital workspace, with professional quality work stations, wide format printers, and high end scanners available for workshops and Silver Eye members.
To make our dream of a beautiful new gallery and education space for the community a reality, we need your support. A donation to Silver Eye insures that we can use this opportunity to grow and thrive in our new home for years to come.
Your gift will make a big difference for Silver Eye–please help us create this extraordinary new space for our community and support our New Vision!
