Classic Images: Photography by


ADAMS South Shore Arts is pleased to present the magnificent photographs of American artist Ansel Adams. These important images, chosen by Adams during the last years of his life, constitute this incredible collection and represent some of the finest examples of his artistic career. Classic Images: Photography by Ansel Adams comes to South Shore Arts from the Peoria Riverfront Museum, in Peoria, Illinois. Adams personally printed 72 photographs that make up Classic Images for his daughter, Ann Adams Helms, as one of his Museum Sets, meant to represent his best work, for which he wanted to be remembered. Some of the most famous and beloved photographs encompassing a broad scope of his career are included. Majestic landscapes celebrating the American West, details of nature, architectural subjects and portraits of famed friends

such as Georgia O’Keefe and Alfred Stieglitz comprise this compelling representation of Adams’ remarkable life’s work. Ansel Easton Adams was born on February 20, 1902, in San Francisco. As a young boy, his passion was the piano until 1916 when a trip with his parents to Yosemite National Park peaked his interest in photography. His father gave him his first camera, a Kodak Brownie box camera, and during his stay he took his first pictures. Back home he learned basic darkroom techniques working part time at a San Francisco photo-finishing shop. The following year he returned to Yosemite on his own with a better camera and a tripod. At 17, he joined the Sierra Club, a group dedicated to protecting the wilderness, and was hired as summer caretaker of the Sierra Club Visitor Center in Yosemite Valley. His first photographs were published in 1922, and Best’s Studio in Yosemite Valley began to sell his prints. It was there that he met and later married Virginia Best, the proprietor’s daughter. They had two children, Michael and Ann, and ultimately five grandchildren. In 1935, Virginia inherited the family studio when her father passed away. To this day, the studio is known as the Ansel Adams Gallery and remains in the hands of the family. In 1927, he produced his first portfolio, Parmelian Prints of the High Sierras, which included his famous image, Monolith, the Face of Half Dome, taken with a Korona view camera using glass plates and a dark red filter to increase the tonal contrasts. Between 1929 and 1942, Adam’s work matured and he became more established. In the course of his 60-year career, the 1930s were considered a particularly experimental and productive time. Alfred Stieglitz, who strove to put photography on an equal artistic plane with painting, was a great influence. Adams experimented with a variety of lenses to achieve different effects but eventually moved away from the pictorial style of Stieglitz towards a more realistic approach, relying on heightened contrast, precise exposure and darkroom craftsmanship for his unique imagery. By the 1960s, photography as an art form had expanded and Adam’s images were shown in large galleries and museums. In 1974, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, hosted a retrospective exhibition. Throughout the 1970s, Adams spent much of his time printing his iconic works to keep up with the demands of the galleries. In 1984, he suffered a heart attack and died at the age of 82. To this day his images are widely reproduced on calendars, posters and books. His legacy includes elevating photography to an art form comparable to painting and capable of expressing emotion as well as beauty. He is believed to have once said to a student, “It is easy to take a photograph, but it is harder to make a masterpiece in photography than in any other art form.” Classic Images: Photography by Ansel Adams will open November 15, 2015, and continue through January 24, 2016. Admission is $3 for Adults, $2 for students/children and free to members of South Shore Arts. A VIP Reception is planned for Tuesday, January 19, from 6-8pm. All photos from the collection of Ann Adams Helms; exhibition organized by the Peoria Riverfront Museum, Peoria, IL.

Dwellings, Cathedrals, Shanties and the Like The Art of Tim Bruce and Jacqueline Moses

Jacqueline Moses, Spain: Twenty-First Century Dystopia, Oil and photo transfer on canvas

Tim Bruce, Farmers Union, Assembled and painted wood with found metal sign

South Shore Arts is pleased to unite two Chicago area artists in an exhibition that explores structures and habitats of our world. From shelters to sanctuaries, the exhibit challenges notions of house, home and the occupants imagined within. Over the past six years, Tim Bruce has been transforming found signs and scrap wood—often from the city streets of Chicago—into a body of sculptural work. Farmers Union recalls a European church but has the feel of a Midwest American barn: utilitarian, crude, yet stately in its cathedral-like structure. Danger 66,000 Volts captures the sense of “home-life behind bars” in a framework reminiscent of the fictional Shawshank prison guard towers. An avid collector of contemporary American folk and self-taught art, Bruce found inspiration in living with the work he collected. Acclaimed Outsider artists such as William Dawson and Aldo Piacenza had a profound effect on his desire to create and to make things by hand. Piacenza is best known for his birdhouses modeled in the shape of famous cathedrals and simple churches. Born in Chicago, Tim Bruce studied at Northumbria University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England, and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, receiving his BFA in Graphic Design. He became a founding partner and creative director of LOWERCASE Inc., a Chicago-based design firm. His design work is included in American Design Archives at the Denver Art Museum and the permanent collection of Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg, Germany.

Jacqueline Moses creates work that is emotionally inspired and intellectually structured. In the past few years she has been painting images derived from her travels and projecting her views of the future. Far from picture postcard images, her work reflects deep concerns about dislocation and changing environments. Many of the countries she has visited have been affected by technological developments and population growth. As a result, she has seen lives altered due to environmental shifts created by industrialization, or politically enforced with the relocation of farmers into government-built city dwellings. “I have observed the dislocating effects that large power plants and dams have on local cultures, the plundering of natural resources, and the tide of destruction in the interest of progress,” Moses states. The imagery presented in Moses’ paintings is as reflective of our times as the techniques used. Many of her paintings are a combination of photographic transfers and oil on canvas, a combination of tradition and future. China: Along the Yangtze River-Chao Yang Gas Co. portrays homes adrift on barges, slowly floating past power plants on a sea of sickly green. The beautiful and isolated buildings in Spain: Twenty-First Century Dystopia convey proud yet desolate surviving structures behind a wall of stone. Jacqueline Moses received her BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and her MFA from Northern Illinois University. Her work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, and universities worldwide. She has received multiple grants from the Illinois Arts Council and has been awarded residencies in numerous locations internationally Dwellings, Cathedrals, Shanties and the Like will run February 7 through April 10, 2016. An Art in Focus lecture featuring Tim Bruce is scheduled for Monday, February 8, and a reception for the artists will be held Sunday, March 6 from 1-3pm.

Hooray for HOLLYWOOD! Opening Concert Gala Raises Funds for Music & Education The Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra launched its 74th season with Hooray for Hollywood, an opening concert and gala held at the Radisson Hotel and Star Plaza Theatre on Friday, September 25, 2015. The concert crowd was treated to some of the best-loved music from movies, including Hooray for Hollywood, Tara’s Theme from Gone with the Wind, Unchained Melody from Ghost, Flight to Neverland from Hook, and many others.

Indiana University Northwest was the evening’s Presenting Sponsor. The Gala raises money every year to benefit the music and education programs of the Symphony, Youth Orchestra, Symphony Chorus and other programs. Guests were treated to delicious food and drink at the Radisson Hotel before the concert at the Star Plaza Theatre. The auction and raffle were highlighted with a Pizza Party at Kirk’s place, and “on the glass” seats at a Blackhawks game along with diamond & Ippolita mother of pearl drop earrings donated by Albert’s Diamond Jewelers. With the opening of the new season the Symphony honored Sue and Andy Arnold for their many years of devoted generosity of both time and treasure. The Arnolds capped off the evening’s festivities by hosting the post concert dessert and champagne reception for the Gala attendees, Maestro Muspratt and the orchestra members. Special thanks to the Gala committee, board, WANISS and the Symphony and South Shore Arts staff for a wonderful evening and a successful start to the season!

Cultivating Creativity by Jillian Van Volkenburgh, Director of Education Reprinted from BusINess Magazine, a Times Media Co. Publication Photo credit: Tony V. Martin I went to a career day and did not talk about my career. Recently I was asked to speak to incoming freshmen at an event called “What Do I Do All Day”. Area leaders were asked to speak to the students about their respective careers and literally, what they do all day. Having participating in career days before, my audiences are predominately middle school students or recent art school graduates. The middle school students will undoubtedly change their minds about their future career paths a million times before they step foot into high school and the art school graduates are just praying to find any job before the student loan bills hit their mailboxes. I reflected on what I would have wanted to hear as an incoming college freshman and ran with it. I spoke about following your passion and the importance of creativity. To avoid quickly becoming a valedictory speech, I refrained from the “reach for the stars” talk and spoke directly about my experience. I began with, “Good afternoon, I am Jillian Van Volkenburgh the Director of Education for South Shore Arts and the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra and my freshman year of college I was a biology major. Their faces lit up and I knew they got it. Having a career in the arts enables me to provide opportunities to inspire people on a daily basis. Whether it is through art classes, performances or outreach, it is my role to encourage creativity. My department provides those opportunities to over 30,000 people annually in Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties. As an arts professional, I am often in the position of defending the arts and I readily accept the challenge. In our

ever-growing innovation society, the arts are becoming more important, especially in business. IBM conducted a global CEO study that surveyed more than 1,500 chief executives from 60 countries in 33 industries to learn what they value as leadership qualities. According to this study, creativity is the “most crucial factor for future success”. Creativity ranked higher than “rigor, management discipline, integrity or even vision.” Creativity used to be associated with individuals in traditional creative careers, but now it is commonplace in most businesses. Business leaders now encourage the cultivation of a creative workplace environment. They recognize that it increases productivity, problem-solving and workplace engagement. It also fosters teamwork and encourages individuality. In an innovation and brand-driven market, it thrives on what’s new, what’s better and what’s next. A workforce that supports that is rooted in creativity. Creativity is not only important to employers but also for whom they hire. As an employer, employee retention is often an indicator of good business health. Simply, if you have a happy work environment, you have happy employees. But what employees seek is changing from wanting a good retirement plan to a workplace that encourages opportunities for creativity and innovation. They look for flexibility and for purpose. Fostering a creative workplace environment is not only good for employees but ultimately for the bottom line. At the career day, by not speaking to the specifics of “What Do I Do All Day” and speaking about the importance of passion and creativity, I showed them exactly what I do all day.
