In the Galleries in February:

18 Artists: Recent Works


The 18 Artists will host an opening reception for their February exhibit at the Chesterton Art Center on Sunday, February 2 from 2-4.

Ken Blumenthal is shown with two of his photographs.

The exhibit titled, “18 Artists, Recent Works” will include both 2D and 3D pieces from approximately (12) of their members. 18 Artists is a cooperative online gallery engaged in furthering the careers of emerging and established artists in the Northwest Indiana and the Chicagoland area.

Established in 1994, their goal is to “engender a supportive community of artists that provides honest feedback & critique, thereby encouraging growth as individual artists and as a group. By collaborating, we can learn, develop and expand our views as individual artists.”

Ken Blumenthal, a local photographer, has been part of the group for about a year. While making his career as a doctor, he has always enjoyed taking photographs – especially of his travels. His pieces in the exhibit include images from Vienna, Prague, and Puerto Vallarta.

The exhibit will hang at the Chesterton Art Center through February 26.

Shown below is a sculpture by Jan Stewart, a photograph by Ken Blumenthal, and oil painting by Joanne Rayter.
