A joy-filled crowd gathered at the Hinsdale Public Library last evening, to learn more about After Supper Visions, meet several of the artists and see the remarkable photographic prints that continue to inspire art enthusiasts, throughout Chicago and beyond.
Kathy Donahue, Catholic Charities Senior Vice-President was in attendance and explains how the event came to pass. She says, “Board member Linda Roxe and volunteer Maureen Kelly organized a Gallery showing at the Hinsdale Public Library for three artists selected by the Hinsdale Public Library Artistic Board . The artwork was well received and the conversation with the artists made for a feel good evening. We express our gratitude to Catholic Charities board members and the artistic board of the library lead by board chair Kristin McDaniel for choosing artwork that inspires conversation about beauty and social justice.”
Catholic Charities Program Manager Katie Tuten continued, “The people from the library said it was one of the largest and most successful artist receptions they’ve ever had. The visitors were very impressed by the caliber of the artists’ work. The artists were very engaging, too and just loved talking to families and visitors about their work. A good time was had by all who attended.”
Dalia Bagdonas Rocotello, Catholic Charities Director, Board Relations summed it well for all. She said, “What a great opportunity to share the wonderful talent of ASV.”
Our sincere thanks to everyone at Hinsdale Public Library for making this special event possible!
