New Appalachia Mixed Exhibition seeks to capture the new and innovative artistic experience surrounding Appalachia and beyond. Known as "The Paris of Appalachia," the Exhibition will be held in the cultural heart of Pittsburgh, PA, at Vestige Concept Gallery.

They are seeking artwork of any kind, from Emerging, Mid-Career, and/or Professional Artists. Work should encompass themes relating to something "new," and should offer a refreshing perspective on arts in the wake of the pandemic, so that visitors may feel a sense of enjoyment and familiarity with art once again, after remaining indoors for so long. (Note, that the theme of the show does not revolve around the pandemic whatsoever, nor is exclusively "Appalachian").

The Exhibition is Part Two of a two-part series of shows taking place in April/May 2021. The show will also appear in an online gallery format.
