Catherine Edelman [b. 1962, New York, NY] opened her Chicago gallery more than 31 years ago after completing her MFA in Photography at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Since its founding in 1987, the gallery has established itself as one of the leading galleries in the Midwest devoted to the exhibition of prominent living photographers, alongside new & young talent. The gallery showcases a broad range of subject matter, attracting both the seasoned collector and first time buyer. Recently, CEG has expanded its program to include mixed-media photo based art, as it seeks to expand the vocabulary of photography. The web site provides a wealth of information, including artist talks, interviews with art world professionals, an online only gallery for local talent, and extensive educational material. The gallery hosts six exhibitions a year, and participates in art fairs throughout the country.
Catherine is an active member of the Association of International Photography Art Dealers [AIPAD] and is widely respected as a leader, educator and specialist in the field of contemporary photography, and is the co-founder of CASE Art Fund.
