Colored Pencils, Still-Life Imagery, and Focusing on Light: The Art of Cecile Baird
On today's edition of ST, an interesting discussion with the Ohio-based artist Cecile Baird, who is currently the ARTworks Featured Artist at Holland Hall School in Tulsa. A master of the colored-pencil medium, Baird has recently been working with art students at that school --- and several of her striking, well-rendered, nearly photo-realistic works will be on view at Holland Hall's Holliman Gallery (in the Walter Arts Center on the HH campus) through November 26th. You can see several examples of Baird's work here, and you can learn more about her various ARTworks events and showings (and about her career in art more generally) at this link. Also on today's program, with Election Day (at long last) just one week away, we have a commentary by Barry Friedman called "Politics and Costume Parties."
