UPDATE: Tickets may still be available, using this link.
This Sunday, William W. Knight — known to many of us as Bill and the painter of what Holly Jacobson affectionately calls “The United States of Eggs and Toast” — will be sharing his personal story at the Unexpected Improv in Pike Place Market. The show is from 3 to 5 p.m.
Unfortunately, ticket sales have ended, but I want Bill to know that many of us will be there in spirit. The venue is probably at capacity. For more information, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/162704137455.
I am curious about those behind this event. Perhaps Bill can share more with us sometime. Also, check out Bill’s painting called UFO, which he shared for the blog a few days ago.
Pauline 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.
I have always felt that we are not alone in this universe. After the recent releases of footage of actual UFOs, I was inspired to paint my version of a UFO, using acrylic on stretched canvas. — PWA Participant Artist William W. Knight

A writer with The Spokesman-Review in Spokane has written about five artists and particular works of theirs about summer. I always love learning about artists and their work. Take a look. Explore.
