The fotoMuses’ “Potpourri” Show at EAG Gallery
The Elmhurst Artists’ Guild (EAG) will host an exhibit by the fotoMuses, a group of fifteen women photographers from the Chicago area. The women note that, despite many commonalities and differences, they unite in their mutual love for the art of photography. The group has been together for twenty years. Perhaps that is why, “Potpourri,” despite a wide range of photographic sensibilities and disparate artistic voices, is a well-curated show that blends these voices together like a well-rehearsed choir. The show is colorful, playful, imaginative, and thought provoking. The fotoMuses granted themselves complete freedom with the theme for this show. The only rule was that they allowed their inner muses to express themselves freely. This is local fine art photography at its best.
The fotoMuses include artists Joanne Barsanti, Marita Blanken, Diane Bruno, Noriko Buckles, Anne Frantzen, Delta Greene, Janice Henry, Joan Kalmanek, Judy Kinal, Joan Ladendorf, Linda Markese, Cheryl Rausch, Marjorie Reichart, Joan Trushin, and Barbara Work.
The exhibit will be held in the EAG Gallery at the Elmhurst Art Museum (EAM), 150 S. Cottage Hill Ave., Elmhurst, from February 2nd until the 28th, 2020. The public is invited to the artists’ reception on Friday, February 7th, from 7:00 to 9:00pm.
The exhibition can be viewed during regular Elmhurst Art Museum hours, Tuesday through Sunday from 11am to 5pm. While admission to the EAG Gallery is always free, admission to EAM is $15 for adults, and $12 for seniors, and free to students, and children under 18. All visitors to EAM are admitted free on the first Friday of each month. More information is available at elmhurstartistsguild.org and elmhurstartmuseum.org.
