  • (1888PressRelease) June 09, 2021 - Hot Summer City: Street Photography Exhibition will be held in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA; a neighborhood that has become the cultural heart of the city. Home to celebrated artists, most notably Andy Warhol, the former steel making capital is now referred to as "The Paris of Appalachia" due to its deep connections to the arts and world-class museums.

    Vestige Concept Gallery encourages all interested photographers to apply by June 20th for the chance to be featured in this July exhibition. Those interested should submit photographic works that capture the essence of urban life in the summertime. Summer is an intense and multifaceted season that brings joy, freedom, and social opportunities. Photography representative of the season may depict intense warmth, deep shadows, and/or depictions of late nights, summer fun, and enjoying time outdoors. Submitted photos could also capture the dark side of summer: oppressive heat; urban blight; and the struggle to keep cool, hustle, and survive.

    The show will be special guest curated by Rafael Fuchs: Brooklyn-based artist, photographer, director, curator and producer. A recipient of many awards, Fuchs has earned his place as one of the most important photographers of his generation. He has captured portraits of some of the most influential figures of the past 30 years; his images have fronted magazine covers and have become part of distinctive private collections and Museums around the globe, including The National Portrait Gallery in London.

    In 2012 Fuchs launched "Fuchs Projects" art space, with its headquarters in Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY. This open creative lab features his works, as well as artworks of many other emerging artists. It has also been featured in numerous art fairs, such as Scope Miami, Art Market Hamptons, Select NY, Affordable Art Fair Amsterdam, Art Karlsruhe Germany, and more. Now, Fuchs is teaming up with Vestige Concept Gallery to bring the best street photographers to Pittsburgh, PA for an exciting summer exhibition.

    Emerging and professional artists are encouraged to apply. For more information and to apply visit Vestige Concept Gallery's webpage at
