St Patrick’s Day Inspiration

PWA participant artist Tim Bridge loves using lots of different colors: pinks, blues, yellows, greens.

“Since St Patrick’s day is on Thursday, that is the look I was going for,” said Tim of his latest creation. One person described Tim’s work as reminding them of “the promise of spring.”

Tim is a regular at Path with Art’s Open Studio on Mondays from 3:30-5:00pm, which is currently held virtually. “We are one big happy family when it comes to art on zoom,” says Tim. “We are all artists in our own special way.”

In The News

Art and September 11th

Artists, critics, and architects are discussing how culture responded and continues to respond to 9/11.

ARTnews has a story of how an immigrant from Korea uses intricate abstract works as a response. There is a write-up in the Village Voice on how the Tribute in Light memorial came to be. The architect of the transportation hub at Ground Zero tells Architectural Digest about how he conceived the design and how the city has changed. A piece in The New York Times looks at how art and artists struggle to contend with the horrors of that day. And, finally, a writer with the Art Newspaper spoke with artists about their memories of the event and how they responded.

“I wouldn’t say that the attacks had a big effect on my thinking so much as the amorphous and ambiguous war on terror and the authorization of military force giving the president unlimited power to wage war.”

Inspiration

An acclaimed painter from America’s past

Pauline Palmer, one of the outstanding women artists in AmericaPauline Palmer was an American artist based in Chicago.

In 1919, Palmer became the first woman elected president of the Chicago Society of Artists. The New York Times, in 1938, upon her death, noted that many art critics celebrated her as one of the most important painters in America.

She was known for her portraits, but also did landscapes and still-life oils. Her work was widely exhibited during her lifetime.

Born in 1867, she died in Norway while on a trip to Europe with her sister.
