Four of my tintypes are in the Summer Show at Martha Schneider Gallery in the River North section of Chicago, IL.
From the gallery website:
New discoveries from around the globe. As all galleries we continually seek new artists and undiscovered talent, but one distinguishing feature of our gallery is the desire to give young artists an opportunity.
Easy Acquisitions is sure to offer the Chicago audience an exciting peek at how the next generation of photographers see the world. Some artists were found through friendly recommendations or alliances to other artists, and some were recently introduced to the gallery through Houston FotoFest. Our director, Martha Schneider, recently traveled to the acclamed Texas photo review where she met some promising, energetic, and inspired artists.
Five artists from far and near have been invited to exhibit in this summer group show. Guy Glorieux (Canadian) has reinvented the concept of the pin-hole camera by using a room and an open window to capture his monumental cityscapes. Michelle Sank photographs teenagers in their element; Sank began in her native England and now travels around the world expanding the series. New Jersey native Bill Westheimer takes interest in the small fragments of the natural world and uses the seldom seen tintype to bring magic to every day elements. Chinese artist Jiang Yiming composes shots of kindergartners set against a traditional watercolor background and dressed as what they hope to be when they grow up. Argentinian born Pablo Gimenez Zapiola projects text onto moving trains in a flash of progress, hope, desire, and promise.
The gallery is located at 230 West Superior St., Chicago, IL 60654 phone (312) 988-4033
