First, what would a shindig be without the support of our amazing sponsors who give selflessly to our community. Huge thanks to Monica at Trybe Production Collective, Linda at the Workbook, the fine folks at Revolution Brewing for graciously providing the adult beverages, and an honorable mention to Tiffany at Lamin-8 who will oversee the demanding task of printing all images for the exhibition.

Second, I would like to recognize the APA board volunteers who graciously give their time and talent that keeps the APA Chicago chapter organization functioning on a daily, monthly, and yearly basis - they are Lindsay Gallup, Alyce Henson, Brooke Hummer, Kourtney Sellers, and Linda Levy. The planning for Artist's Perspective is a year-long process.

Last, we would like to thank all photographers who submitted work for this year's exhibition. Entries increased by 15.8% over the previous year - making this the most competitive exhibition in our seven-year history.

A hearty thank you from everyone at APA Chicago. We hope to see you at the exhibition on January 24, 2020 at Bridgeport Art Center.
