In this spirit we will be hosting a Virtual Last Call Party tonight, on Thursday, July 9th, at 6pm. It will be one last chance to come together and watch the final flurry of bidding as the clock on auction winds down.
You can make an appointment to stop by the gallery and see the lots in person during regular gallery hours, Tues - Saturday, 10am - 6pm
Silver Eye is committed to investing in artists who have all too often been shut out of the art world, and to that end we will be giving 10% of the profits from this sale to Sibyls Shrine, a new artists residency for Black women, womxn, trans women, and femmes who are mothers and identify as artists, creatives, and/or activists in Pittsburgh, PA. The creative work of these artists is essential to our field and to our future.
