In Focus – Catherine Edelman Gallery

Harrington Professional Photography Students:

There is a new program at the Catherine Edelman Gallery for new collectors called In Focus.

With more and more people becoming interested in photography, it’s become apparent that a program explaining current photographic trends and the do’s and dont’s of collecting, could prove valuable and informative in Chicago.

In Focus is a membership based program that meets four times and is led by Catherine Edelman and other prominent members of the Chicago art community.

Dues are $100 (for all  four sessions) and discussions are at 9:30-11AM, every other Saturday at the gallery, starting October 3, 2009.

There is also a short questionnaire that participants are asked to complete to better gauge photography interests.
