Summer Momentum Continues For ASV

Thank you to everyone who has purchased photos from the new 2015 collection posted on this website. Please tell your family, friends and colleagues about these beautiful photos, and remind them that the photographer who took each photo directly benefits from your purchase of their print(s).

New Artist classes began in July and, due to the resounding success of the 2015 ASV Photo Exhibition, 20 NEW ARTISTS came to participate in the classes. These artists will be well prepared as the new ASV season fully begins again in September.

ASV photos also will be shown at Catholic Charities’ 14th Annual Gala Of The Arts, an elegant evening featuring performing and visual arts, held this year on Friday, September 11th at the historic Navy Pier Grand Ballroom. Guests will enjoy cocktails, dinner and raffle prizes as they stroll through a Art Show and Sale featuring local and nationally recognized artists. ASV photos will be included among these, a real credit to the talents of ASV artists.

Guests also will dance to the sounds of ABBA tribute band, ABBAFAB and NBC 5 News Anchor Allison Rosati  will serve as Emcee for the evening. This black tie optional event has become one of Chicago’s premier social events, benefitting Catholic Charities’ Emergency Assistance Programs.  Every 30 seconds someone turns to Catholic Charities for help, and often their needs are met first by the these essential programs.

Tickets start at $250 per person. For more details, sponsorship opportunities or to reserve your tickets, please visit or contact Judy Silekis at
