A 135-Year Legacy Continues
The Chicago Society of Artists is a non-profit organization started in 1887. Now well into its second century, CSA is the oldest continuing artist association in the United States. Since its incorporation in 1889, the primary objective of CSA has been the advancement of art.
Early members of the Chicago Society of Artists such as the Albrights, Frances Foy, Frances Badger, and LeRoy Neiman established and maintained high standards for membership. Much of CSA’s renown is due to member versatility which includes painters, graphic artists, print makers, photographers, sculptors, art critics, art gallery curators and art educators.
Today CSA continues to play a significant role in the arts – often far beyond the boundaries of Chicago – by providing opportunities in which artists share their art production and experiences through a continuing series of exhibitions and educational programs.
Artists included in the Tall Grass exhibit are: Rene Arceo, Jon Balke, Josiah Bara, Norman Baugher, David Bechtol, Nancy Bechtol, Kathryn Budd, Catherine Cajandig, Roger Carlson, Mary Carnahan, Rita Dianni-Kaleel, Barbara Eberhard, Corrie-Lou Livingston Glass, Joe Hadamik, Jeanine Hill-Soldner, Sandra Holubow, Nikkole Huss, Pat Coffman Huss, Robert Johnson, Fred Koehler, James Mesple, BettyAnn Mocek, Jackie Moses, Donna Nevels, Didier Nolet, Julia Oehmke, Deanna Rallins, Sandra Reibscheid, Robert Schiltz, Richard Schmidt, Barry Skurkis, Eric Steele, Jane Stevens, Michael Veltman, and William F.
