“Hope in the Dark:Refocused” exhibit update

The closing reception for the Hope in the Dark fine art photo exhibit was held on Nov. 16th in the gallery at Creative Coworking in Evanston, IL.

I’m happy to report it was a huge success!!

This was the show I created and curated as a fundraising event for RefugeeOne which is one of Chicago’s largest social service agencies serving new immigrants. Just last week, I received the final donation tally. I’m thrilled to report that we exceeded last year’s fundraising total by over 30%!!

Thanks go to the ten fabulous photographers whose images inspired the event attendees top open their hearts and their wallets. Justin Fantl, Ted Glasoe, Alyce Henson, Karl Herber, Aimee Norkett, Christina McFaul, Dan Merlo, Nate Ryan, Todd Winslow Pierce, and Craig van der Lende all had stunning images that related to the theme of the show.

Additional huge thanks go to Karl Herber Digital. Karl expertly printed the entire show. Big thanks also go to the team at BLICK in Evanston for all the lovely framing. I could not have mounted this exhibit without their support!
