Jack Evans

Ilume Gallery is now staging its 100th show, a retrospective of the art work and mementos of Jack Evans.

Evans, who died in June, and his partner George Harris are known, among other reasons, as LGBT community organizers who made the front page of the New York Times and appeared in People magazine after the Obergefell marriage equality decision in 2015. At the time of Evans’ death this summer, the couple had been together for 55 years.

Evans’ photography and art has previously been displayed at Northaven United Methodist Church, where the couple attended.

The Ilume exhibit opens with receptions from 6-8 p.m. on Sept. 9 and 10. The exhibit continues through Sept. 17.

Ilume Gallery is located in the original ilume, 4123 Cedar Springs Road.
