Denise Keim/Jim Newberry photo show this Saturday night


The enormously talented Denise Keim and I are teaming up this Saturday for a one night, two-stop photo show. I’ll be showing brand new work along with some old favorites, including stereo (3D) slides. Denise has a plethora of gorgeous black & white prints. I’ll be at my studio, and Denise will be at hers for the duration of the show (we’re hoping to have a video linkup). Look for the stream of indicator stop bath on the sidewalk between the two buildings. Please stop by both studios Saturday night if you’re in Chicago and free. Here are the addresses:

Denise Keim 2219 W. Belden Ave 773-294-7699 Chicago, IL 60647

Jim Newberry 2068 N. Leavitt St 312-485-1879 Chicago, IL 60647

Of Montreal

It’s springtime, and Of Montreal is looking more fabulous than you are. Watch out for the ninja! If you’re so inclined, you can catch them in action in Toronto on May 4th; Paris May 8th, and on May 11th they’ll be taking the stage at the All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival in East Sussex, England.

Erdman/Newberry Lethargy Art Walk II

Lethargy Art Walk II

This Saturday, April 26th, painter Derek Erdman and photographer Jim Newberry (AKA, me) present the second annual Lethargy Art Walk. The Lethargy Art Walk is a lot like Around the Coyote, or the Pilsen Artists’ Walk, only much, much, much less walking. There’s my studio, and across the hall, Erdman’s place. Please come, and be sure to bring lots of cash. Here is a stereo (3d) portrait of Erdman I shot for the L.A.W. II promotional materials:
