Rebecca Arthur, alum of the Department of Photography & Imaging at NYU Tisch School of the Arts and 2019 Keystone Prize Winner and Fellow at Silver Eye Center, opens the Fellowship 19 exhibition in Pittsburgh this week. The work on display was begun as her senior thesis project while at NYU. She exhibits alongside 2019 International Award Winner Tim Carpenter.
Fellowship is Silver Eye's international juried photography competition. For eighteen years the competition has recognized both rising talent and established photographers from all corners of the globe, and from the state of Pennsylvania. The International Prize is awarded to an artist working within the United States or abroad, and the Keystone Prize is awarded to an artist working and living within the state of Pennsylvania. The prizes were selected by Chris McCall, Executive Director of Pier 24 in San Francisco, CA and Jessica Beck, Milton Fine Curator of Art at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.
Rebecca Arthur is a photographer currently serving as an ArtistYear AmeriCorps member in Philadelphia, PA teaching photography to high school students in a title I school. Starting in September 2019, she will be moving to France for a photography and research Fulbright Award.
