Central Street Art Walk 2017
June 9 – 11, 2017

The chicest street in Evanston is having an Art Walk this weekend in conjunction with the Evanston Art Center and Evanston Made. So get your group ready to stroll Central Street, June 9-11, in support of local Evanston artists. Over 15 individuals – painters, illustrators, jewelry makers, potters, and photographers – will be displaying their work in store fronts along Central, between Eastwood and McDaniel Avenues.

Allegro will be displaying the dance photography of our very own Aly Raddatz!

Aly Raddatz is a dancer and a dance photographer located in the Northwestern Suburbs. Her passion for photography started in high school, where you could often find her hiding in the darkroom for hours. As a dancer, Aly was often frustrated at the poor dance photos taken over the course of her dance career; a shutter clicked too soon, or even too late, and the moment was missed! It soon became obvious that she could combine her skills in front of and behind the camera to take better dance photos. Enter her husband, a theater technician with a production company, Midwest Event Solutions. Together they realized that the best people who understand dancers are dancers! Now the company doesn’t just photograph dancers, but provides a variety of photo and video services by dancers, for dancers.

Be sure to stop in to Allegro Evanston this weekend to check out these beautifully captured photos in person!
