Group Info

The Great American City, Chicago, is often overlooked by New York, SF or LA, but I love it the best of all cities. This is the first group for Chicago. I am shocked to find that there are none, so..

This group is for Photographic art of Chicago.

Hello to everyone!

I'd like to send a special thank you to RogueSamus our wonderful group leader for my recent promotion. I am looking forward to helping the group as much as possible in the coming weeks. The first place I am going to start is with submissions and responses to submissions. Throughout my nearly 10 years with DA I've always found suggestions and critiques to be useful guideposts on my journey to better art. I would like to respond to as many submissions with something of substance as possible whether a piece is accepted or not. It's always nice to know that someone is looking watching with an open mind and willing to share their thoughts.

With any luck my initial work to begin open discussions on pieces will be a catalyst for more comments and critiques. Please consider taking 10-15 minutes to look through the galleries and leave some comments for other group members. Reciprocation is the gateway to discourse and a better group capaciousness. It would be great to get some discussions going about our contributors, their neighborhoods, and how they see our great city.

With an open mind and a prime lens,

Matt - trxfrkds

Hey, so I just moved to Chicago and I don't know how to meet other artists, or find an outlet for my work. I do sharpie art, which can sometimes be inspired by the city, but isn't always related. Do you know of any places or people that I might want to connect with? May I submit artwork that is not Chicago photography to this group?

HI Maggie,

We are a Photographic art group and won't accept anything else. However, you can check out Chicago Artists -> [link] we have galleries that your work would fit into.

As for outside the Internet, I don't know many places for sharpie art in particular, but you may like the Chicago Artists Resource-->> [link]

I am assuming with none of my submissions being accepted that this group has gone dead? or is there a reason why no submissions are being accepted?
