20th Anniversary Year Continues

It started with a donation of cameras. In 2002, Fr. Wayne Watts, Associate Administrator of Catholic Charities and Ellen Gorney, a Catholic Charities executive at the time came up with the idea to share this generous donation with the guests of Charities Charities Tuesday Night Suppers. Soon Jody O’Connor, Noreen Russo and Maureen Kelly joined the group, creating the original Photo Team, and they got to work, trying to make After Supper Visions the most positive photography experience possible for the artists who chose to participate in the program.

Twenty years later, the goal of After Supper Visions is still the same. New and returning artists challenge themselves to new heights of imagination and creativity each year. Their talent, resiliency and support for one another continue to inspire us all! Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to hold our in-person Photo Exhibition this year. However, we invite you to watch this space for further developments as After Supper Visions continues to offer our guests the opportunity to see beautiful, interesting things in life from the lens of a camera, and grow in their skills as photographers.

We offer heartfelt gratitude to the many other volunteers, individual benefactors and corporate donors who continue to support ASV and its artists. Happy 20th Anniversary to all!

Happy New Year! 

After Supper Visions Photo Team members continue to work with the artists in this program to the extent that we are able to safely do so. The artists are taking impressive photos and when we are able to meet in person, we are working with them on editing to bring out the best in each of their photos. 

We are hoping to have our 20th Anniversary Photo Exhibition on Friday and Saturday, June 10-11, 2022 IN PERSON at 721 N. LaSalle Street. However, we will need to continue to follow all city and state COVID-19 guidelines as the date nears. Stay tuned for the latest news on this very special event. 

You can support ASV artists all year long on this website, by purchasing prints and gifts and making a donation. Thank you for your ongoing support of the artists and the art of photography!
