The fotoMuses exhibit “Who Am I?” has now opened at the Schaumburg Prairie Center for the Arts in the Herb Aigner Gallery. The exhibit runs from August 27 through September 28, 2012, with a complimentary Artists’ Reception on Friday September 7 from 6:30 - 8:30.
The fotoMuses was established in 1997 as a supportive group of women photographers from the Chicago metropolitan area. I joined the fotoMuses earlier this spring, and this is my second exhibit with the group. Curator Judy Kinal, one of the co-founders, challenged us explore our inner selves through our individual photographic styles.
In addition to Joanne Barsanti and Judy Kinal from Roselle, exhibitors also include Marita Blanken, Noriko Buckles, and Linda Markese of Downers Grove; Diane Bruno and Delta Greene of Chicago; Janice Henry and Jackye Revely of Bloomingdale; Aichen Ho of Naperville; Joan Kalmenek from Lisle; and Elizabeth Smartt of Elmurst.
The exhibit is a true reflection of our diverse interests and styles. It is personal, far-reaching, fun, silly, serious, elegant, and thoughtful. I invite all in the area to join us on Friday, September 7 from 6:30 - 8:30 to experience the exhibit first-hand, talk to the artists, and enjoy some wonderful food.
