Mon02Mar20155:00 amApple Store, N. Michigan Ave.
In this Apple Store talk Dave will discuss his creative process: from concept to creation.
Dave will elaborate on taking ideas and concepts from his mind (or a creative’s) and walking through the process of bringing it to life in a photograph. Character development, choosing a narrative or point of view, and then deciding the best approach for execution will be presented through examples of both commercial/editorial and personal work.
He will discuss the process of determining whether an image should be created on location, on a set in the studio, or through a composited combination of both. And, express the importance of personal work as a tool to work through these processes so they are at the ready when a client calls.
Dave Rentauskas is an award-winning editorial and advertising photographer based in Chicago. Both his photography and the characters he creates are vivid, colorful, and lighthearted. Whether he's being serious or humorous, his stylized portraits are developed through thoughtful narrative and attention to detail.

In “Sentience,” five Chicago-based artists embrace mediums of construction, assemblage or collage in a range of vastly differing practices. Though David Criner, Marcos Raya, Tom Torluemke, Kathy Weaver and Stacia Yeapanis each work within their own unique artistic intentions, their works share a strangeness that results from the tension of commingling imagination with the stuff of everyday life.

The Schedule: Registration officially opens at 10am on Thursday, September 10.
Sessions with Limited Capacity:
- Broad Strokes, Understanding our Creative Context
- Defining an Anti-Racist Arts Environment
The Theme: This year we are focused on providing you tools for rebuilding, revitalizing, and reimagining the future, with an understanding that the work can only be successful if it centers racial equity. We're also looking at how the arts and culture sector is interacting and intersecting with the current political moment in our country, and are providing lots of opportunities to be in community with others. Because one thing we all need right now, is connection to our community.
The Cost: The conference is free to attend, but not to produce. With the impact COVID-19 has had on the arts sector we felt it was important to waive all registration fees to make the conference as accessible as possible. We also made it possible to donate when you register so if you have the capacity and desire to do so, you can. Whatever you can meaningfully contribute, we will deeply appreciate. Thanks for your support for this conference programming!
The Self-Care: This conference is overflowing with amazing sessions, incredible speakers, and highly interactive moments. If you look at this schedule and are nervous about making it to all the sessions you want while also juggling Zoom fatigue and all the life responsibilities 2020 has piled on top of you -- it's okay. We understand. Many of the sessions will be recorded and made available after the fact. We recommend focusing on the interactive sessions and experiences you want to have.
One State is brought to you by Arts Alliance Illinois, in partnership with Illinois Arts Council Agency (IACA), and with generous funding from IACA and the National Endowment of the Arts.
