CHICAGO (Aug. 15, 2022) – The Chicago Alliance of Visual Artists (CAVA) is pleased to present its annual Members’ Exhibition at the historic Berger Park Gunder Mansion. Gunder Mansion is a Chicago historical landmark, built on the lakefront in 1910, and is part of the Berger Park Cultural Center of the Chicago Park District. The exhibition, reception, and Intergenerational Art Event are all FREE and open to the public.
“This will be the first time CAVA will have a group show at this Chicago landmark, and we are very excited at the possibilities the venue offers,” says show manager Dorothy Mason. “The space is very large and flexible, so we will have the opportunity to increase the number of pieces we can display in one show, as well as expand on the size of the work and types of media.”
INTERGENERATIONAL ART EVENT: Sunday, October 2, from 2:00–4:00 p.m. 
On the last day of the show CAVA will host an intergenerational arts event for the community at Berger Park. CAVA’s member artists will work with and guide school age children in an immersive creative exploration using collage of views, perceptions, and shared understandings around the meaning of society, and challenges facing those shared understandings in the 21st century. CAVA is looking for volunteers to help with this event. Families interested in participating can sign up for this event at

About the Chicago Alliance of Visual Artists
CAVA is a not-for-profit volunteer organization, founded in 1988, and committed to addressing the needs and concerns of artists aged 50 and older. CAVA promotes older artists and their work, creating community and fellowship through our annual exhibitions and educational events, including our salon events, workshops, member luncheon, annual symposium, and special themed exhibitions. We provide our 200-plus members throughout Chicagoland the opportunity to exhibit and sell their artwork in such notable venues as the Chicago Cultural Center, Evanston Art Center, DankHaus German American Cultural Center, Bridgeport Art Center, Beverly Arts Center, the Haitian American Museum of Chicago, and the Leslie Wolfe Gallery in Old Town. CAVA members create art in a wide variety of media exploring an expansive array of topics, and covering a wealth of artistic and life experiences.

CAVA’s volunteer board members manage, publicize, produce, and coordinate our many activities. We rely on members, volunteers, and supporters to help with individual projects, generating new exhibition and event ideas, and to help reach out to other area arts organizations to realize partnership opportunities.
