Evelyn and I are having a month-long show at the McCord Gallery and Cultural Center in Palos Park, Illinois, which is entitled “I’m Glad You See It My Way.” This favorite phrase of mine seemed like a pretty good title considering that we are a husband and wife team working in the visual arts.. The show opens Friday September 27, 2019 at 10:00 AM and runs until October 31, 2019 at 4:00 PM. To get to the gallery, you take the Stevenson Expressway (I-55) to Exit 279 A-B, and then head south for about seven miles. We will have a reception on Sunday, October 6, 2019, from 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM. Hope to see you there.
Evelyn has become quite the pastel artist over the last five or six years, with her paintings receiving awards in juried shows. Last year, one of her paintings was selected for an award by the Pastel Society of America, and it was displayed at the society’s annual exhibit at the National Arts Club located across from Gramercy Park in New York City, and then it went off to the Butler Museum for an exhibit of pastel works. You can see Evelyn’s portfolio on her website.
Over the last 15 years, I have devoted considerable effort to photographing the City of Chicago because I enjoy architecture and weather. For the last five months, my focus has been on the neighborhoods. I also photograph jazz and blues musicians, newsworthy events—I have an Age of Trump series going— and people and objects. I recently did my first headshot session, so my practice is expanding.
From December 2018 until July 2019, I compiled and added to a project focused on the cemeteries of Paris. This was my project for LensCulture’s annual Storytelling workshop in Amsterdam. i was one of twelve photographers from around the world selected to participate in the 2018-19 workshop, which involved three trips to Amsterdam.
