July Artist of the Month

Photographer: Dominick Maino

Dominick easily brings his profession into the act of photographic creation.

As a Professor Emeritus at the Illinois College of Optometry/Illinois Eye Institute, he is aware of the importance of single, clear, and comfortable, two-eyed vision.

As a tenor and musician, he understands the interplay of melody, harmony and even dissonance within a work written for a chorus, an orchestra, and even within a photographic image. Each of these concepts is applied to his image making. His art speaks to his clarity of vision; his understanding of the universal rhythm that surrounds us all; his ability to process visual information into an artful expression and his enthusiastic outlook upon the world.

His photography skills have featured the Irish American Heritage Center, Six Corners County Fair, Chicago Fringe Festival, the Filament Theatre, Illinois College of Optometry, St. Bartholomew Parish, College of Optometrists in Vision Development, various political events, Small Business Saturday and other community activities. His exhibitions as a featured artist have taken place at the Nine2Five Gallery in Kansas City, Gallery ABBA (Beloit, Wi), the Addison Rotunda, the Cook County Treasurer’s Office, and at Casa Italia in Stone Park. His local showings include Fannie’s Café, City News Café, St. Bartholomew Church and Finom Café. As well as his images have appeared in the Kansas City Voices (a juried art journal), The Archdiocese of Chicago: A Journey of Faith (uncredited), and the covers of the Catholic New World, Optometric Education and Optometry & Vision Development.

100% of the artist profits from sales, will be donated to the ‘Our Lady of the Rosary Music Ministry’.
