In Memoriam: Sally Minker

In Memoriam: Sally Minker
PWP is sad to announce the passing of member Sally Minker. Sally was a fine artist and graphic designer who shared her abundant talent with the organization by putting together publicity materials for shows and exhibiting her work. Most of all, she was a warm and encouraging member, a friend to many, a funny and gracious presence at meetings and events. Sally received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute, and her MFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. She won grants and awards from the Artists Space in New York City, the Connemara Conservancy in Dallas, and the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Art and Culture in Baltimore.

In Memoriam: Ann Littlejohn
Professional Women Photographers notes with sadness the passing of longtime member Ann Littlejohn. Ann was a active participant in PWP meetings, classes, and events, where she was friendly and helpful to all, one of the great members who make the organization tick. Ann wasn’t partial to a single element of PWP, but supported the organization as a whole. A few years back when I was on the board, I arrived very late to the Student Awards ceremony.

Mid-Year Update by Sally Minker

Mid-Year Update by Sally Minker
PWP was founded on the idea of women helping woman, so we thought it would be nice at mid-year to take a quick look back at what the women of the U.S. have been up to. Here are a few images by PWP member Sally Minker. Sally is also a terrific graphic designer, and has designed some wonderful announcements for our organization. In our view, she represents the idea of giving back at its very best. Thank you, Sally, for bearing witness, and for helping us see what is possible. – Catherine Kirkpatrick

Midcentury Majesty: Frances McLaughlin-Gill & Friends
Working on the PWP Archives, one name kept cropping up in the early documents: Frances McLaughlin-Gill. From brief mentions, I gathered that she was one of the first members, had a successful career photographing for magazines, and was involved in a project about twins. Other than that, she remained a mystery, someone I hoped to learn more about, but never did. So when PWP’s founder, Dannielle Hayes, sent an invitation for a show featuring her work, I was thrilled. Midcentury photographers are having a moment. There is the great Irving Penn show at the Met, and now Lives & Still Lives: Leslie Gill, Frances McLaughlin-Gill, and Their Circle at the Howard Greenberg Gallery. Much will be written by far smarter [continue reading...]
