I am really excited to have been selected to show in this exhibition. My photograph, "Smoke Stack" will make its public debut!

Gala Reception: Saturday, August 25, 7p -9p CDT 


Real People is a national juried fine art exhibition celebrating the arts through faces and figures. Real People is open to all artists and media; submitted work must depict the human form or face in some manner that is recognizable. Started in 2000, the show is held each year at the Old Court House Arts Center in Woodstock, Illinois, located outside of Chicago, Illinois. Real People has become a much-anticipated area event and the show enjoys excellent media coverage and exposure. Along with the Opening Reception, other events are held at The Old Court House Arts Center during the exhibition to encourage attendance. 


We are very excited to have as our Judge for this year's show Chicago-area artist John Pitman Weber, who is known for his public artwork in a variety of styles, including murals, mosaic, cement relief, carved brick, and ceramic tiles. John is a co-founder of the Chicago Public Art Group and has exhibited widely, including over 30 solo shows. We encourage you to learn more about him by visiting his website at
