Five Photographers Art Event

CCO would like to say thank you to Michelle Britton for putting together such an amazing gallery event last week!

Five Photographers : Five Visions of Social Justice was a success! Many prints for silent auction sold and the event was well attended.

Thank you to Alibi Fine Art Gallery who provided a beautiful and welcoming space for everyone to view the prints. And a huge thank you to photographers, Sandro, Jim Newberry, David Gremp, Fred Burkhart and Michelle Britton who donated prints and the patrons who purchased them! It was a great night!

 Jim Newberry (see images above) has been shooting pictures in Chicago since the early 80s, influenced by his father, who founded the photography department at Columbia College Chicago. In the 70s, his father occasionally brought him along on his trips to photograph the Maxwell Street market. Both donated photographs were shot for the Reader in 1988 and 1991.

You Are Invited!

David Gremp’s contribution (seen above) is taken from his Chicago 78/79 series created during a 12-month artist-in-residency with the Chicago Council on Fine Arts, a program that existed from 1977 to 1981. This program was federally funded by the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act which allowed the city to hire artists of varying disciplines, including musicians, painters, sculptors, writers, poets, playwrights, actors, filmmakers and photographers to enrich the city.
