Owner, Catherine Edelman Gallery
December 1, 2019 marked the 32-year anniversary of Catherine Edelman Gallery, a venue for contemporary fine art photography in Chicago. Since its founding in 1987, the gallery has established itself as one of the leading galleries in the US devoted to the exhibition of prominent living photographers, alongside new & young talent. The gallery showcases a broad range of subject matter, attracting both the seasoned collector and first-time buyer.
Recently, CEG moved to a 4400 sq ft space, expanding its program to include artists readings and panel discussions, with a larger exhibition space and dedicated video room, as we seek to expand the vocabulary of photography. Our web site provides a wealth of information, including artist talks, interviews with art world professionals, an online only gallery for local talent, and extensive educational material.
In 2018, Catherine Edelman and Anette Skuggedal formed CASE Art Fund, a 501c3 non-profit that gives support and exposure to fine art photographers whose projects focus on humanitarian issues and create a positive impact on social awareness, human rights, and education. CASE's vision is to be at the forefront of presenting photographs about social injustices that inspire, educate, raise awareness and offer dialogue.
She is interesting in seeing socially relevant work. Not interested in nudes, flowers or straightforward architecture.
