About the Kalman & Pabst Photo Group Fine Art Show

Kalman & Pabst Photo Group biennial Fine Art Show is a tradition that began more than a decade ago. Originally a vision to encourage our staff's creative efforts outside the studio, the show's success transformed it into a means to give back to our community. KP Photo's studio-turned-art-gallery features more than 600 fine art creations for sale, including photography, paintings, illustrations, and installations during the weekend event.

Thank you!

A very heartfelt thank you to all who came out to support our staff at the Kalman & Pabst 2016 Fine Art Show this May! Because of your generous artwork purchases, we provided more than 30,000 meals to the area through the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland. 

Although the festivities have passed, please sign up for news and updates, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or contact us at mail@kpphoto.com to be added to the mailing list for the 2018 Art Show.

About HNGC

While critics herald Cleveland as one of the best “foodie” cities in the nation, one out of three people still can’t afford the meals they need and more than 50 percent of our city’s kids live in poverty, according to the 2013 U.S. Census Report. That’s the second highest childhood poverty rate in the nation.

The mission of the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland (HNGC) is to reduce hunger in our community by providing food and linkages to other vital services for hungry people, especially children and families, by actively participating in a coordinated response to people in need.

Each month, the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland places nutritious meals directly into the hands of 60,000 people, more than 40 percent of which are children. The non-profit organization also purchases food from local food bank warehouses and operates with the help of our close to 1,400 dedicated volunteers.

A mere $1 donation provides 4 nutritious meals.  For more information about the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland and its mission, visit HungerNetwork.org.

20% of Proceeds Benefit HNGC

Because of our extensive work in food photography and our desire to help local non-profits, we extended our philanthropic efforts again this year with your help. Each KP Photo employee donated a piece of art for a raffle with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland. In addition to the raffle donation, 20% of every piece sold was donated to the non-profit organization to provide more than 30,000 meals!

Each KP Photo Fine Art Show seems to outdo the last. With our desire to give more back to the community, we need smart partners to make this event a success. This year's show wouldn't have been possible without the support of some incredible businesses and creative partners.

Jennifer Gomez // Graphic design

The quiet graphic designer genius behind the invitations, brochures and communication materials for the show. How she created a cohesive look with so many pieces of diverse artwork is still impressive.

Spruce, under Tom Sarago's leadership, garnered critical media support for this year's art show. We had a blast hosting Fox 8's Kickin' It with Kenny, among other PR successes, thanks to Spruce.

Heartfelt thank you to Hughie's LightingB&B Abriance for the excellent music, and Orville McEachron for capturing the evening in photos and letting us take a break from behind the camera. Shout-out to our printing partners, Repros and Great Lakes Printing.
