Following two wildly successful PERSONAL PROJECTS exhibitions in December, 2011
and May, 2012, more than a dozen photographers and painters will be giving yet another peak at their souls by exposing works never seen by the public at
PERSONAL PROJECTS—an art exhibition curated by Chicago-based photographer Scott Thompson.
Dozens of photos taken in black and white and color will be displayed, along with paintings in various mediums. "We named the show PERSONAL PROJECTS because,
basically it comprises the projects that artists create for inspiration, but not commercial release," Thompson explains. "They typically never see the light of
day. Most the time, these projects are undertaken to work on a new technique or work through a creative idea, or even as a form of therapy. Whatever the reason, they were
never meant to be shared with an audience. But we are open to connecting on a deeper level by bearing our souls."
"This show we are going back to our original purpose, to have it be a PERSONAL PROJECTS. It is to show our work that we do for ourselves, for passion and excitement and for reasons why we create in the first place.
