One of my favorite photographers, Jane Fulton Alt will be showing in her home town of Chicago at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center from September 13-November 6th. Her photography, of which I own quite a few prints of scenes in the various regions of Mexico where she has traveled with us on Rick Bayless’s annual staff trip, is exquisite and if you live in the neighborhood, I highly recommend that you visit the Center. The opening reception is Sunday, September 23 from 3-5 p.m and her show is entitled, The Burn.
