Evan Mirapaul, the founder/director of PGH Photo Fair (and PCAMG member) invites The Pittsburgh Cultural Arts Meetup Group to attend the third edition of PGH Photo Fair, Pittsburgh’s first art fair promoting the discussion of photography within the contemporary and fine art market.
PGH Photo Fair will host twelve internationally known dealers to exhibit museum-quality prints and photo-based art spanning the history of the medium, from nineteenth-century vintage prints to contemporary photography, as well as photographic books and photo-based magazines. The two-day event will be held at the Carnegie Museum of Art Hall of Sculpture in Pittsburgh, PA. PCAMG members are welcome to attend at anytime, but please come look for me at 3pm on either Saturday or Sunday for a personal tour of the Fair. The complete schedule is below or you can find more details at: http://www.pghphotofair.com
PGH Photo Fair will be held Saturday May 17 and Sunday May 18, 2014 inside the Carnegie Museum of Art Hall of Sculpture.
Entry to the fair will be free and open to the public from 12 to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
However, admission to the other exhibits inside the Carnegie Museums will require the usual admission tickets for separate entry. If you'd like to see what else is going on inside the museum after you check out the PGH Photo Fair, please visit the Carnegie Museums of Art http://www.cmoa.org/ and Natural History http://carnegiemnh.org/
