2020 Auction Preview Exhibition

Jun 2–9, 2020
Silver Eye Center for Photography
Aaronel Deroy Gruber & Irving Gruber Gallery
4808 Penn Ave
Pittsburgh, PA 15224

Welcome to Silver Eye Center for Photography’s biennial Benefit Auction, powered by Artsy. This is our most important fundraiser and proceeds from the Auction support our exhibitions, our artists, our educational programs, and keep our gallery free and open to all. As an organization we have already faced difficulties we could not have imagined when the year began, and we know the road ahead will be challenging, but we are determined to give exceptional artists a strong voice in our community.

The photographs in this auction represent many of the most talented, generous, and creative artists working in photography today. They have been gathered by our staff, board, and friends over a period of years and create one of our most exciting exhibitions. We will also have the work from the Auction on view in our gallery in June so that local bidders can see all of the lots in person. Of course for our physical space we will have full social distancing measures in effect, including requiring masks, and only allowing four people in the space at one time. We know this is a big change from a format that has served us well for more than 20 years, so please reach out to us if you have any questions at all.

When you place a bid at the Auction or purchase a Ticket to the Virtual Preview Party, you are keeping compelling, beautiful, and challenging art in our community.

See all the lots and bid with our partner Artsy, starting June 25th
