This is the last week to see the “Hope in the Dark: Why I’m Voting” fine art photo exhibit/fundraiser

This fundraising exhibit consisting of 22 inspiring images would not exist without the generosity of the photographers who donated their images for the cause. Huge thanks go to these twelve current (or past), awesomely-talented photo clients: Drew Endicott, Justin Fantl, Ted Glasoe, Michael Hart, Alyce Henson, Karl Herber, Dan Merlo, Aimee Norkett, Todd Winslow Pierce, Michael Schoenfeld, and Craig van der Lende.

Here’s a 5 min. video about the show.

The show had a socially-distanced opening on Sept 12th, in the Gallery at Creative Coworking, 922 Davis St., Evanston, IL

We will have a casual Open House CLOSING event on Sat. Nov. 7th  from 12pm-6pm at the gallery. Many prints are still available at an incredible discount thanks to the generosity of the artists.

Since this event is happening in the midst of the pandemic, I set a modest fundraising goal. I hoped to raise $1,000 for the two beneficiaries: RepresentUS and the ACLU’s Voter Rights Project.

I’m happy to report that the support has been simply amazing!! As of today, we’ve raised $2,643!!  If you’d care to donate, click this official donation page on FaceBook.

Or go here: Donate now.

And finally, extra special thanks go to Karl Herber who once again, did an exquisite job of printing the whole darn show and to Ted Glasoe who did the physically hard work of doing almost all of the physical work in hanging the show. I couldn’t have done this without their help.

Photo exhibition reception worth attending in Chicago on Sunday 9/23/12 from 10am-1pm.

Before heading over to Navy Pier for the last day of Expo Chicago, Chicago-area fans of fine photography, social documentary, or those who’ve just come to town for the not-to-miss Expo, should also not miss Stephen Daiter Gallery (230 W. Superior, 4th floor, Chicago, IL 60654).

On Sunday 9/23/12 from 10:00 a.m -1:00 pm there’s an artists’ reception for a number of the photographers featured in the current, and well worth-seeing exhibition “Collateral Damage: The Human Face of War

Some proceeds from the sales of prints in the exhibition will benefit post-traumatic stress support groups such as Wounded Warriors. In the case of sales of prints from the Gays in the Military series, funds will be sent to the Service members Legal Defense Network, an organization that advocates for LGBT personnel. The reception occurs on the one-year anniversary of the repeal of “Don’t ask/Don’t tell.”

Powerful work. Important issues.
