Miriam Schapiro 1923-2015

schapiro s

Miriam Schapiro’s influence hovers over my work, even when I’m not consciously making the connection.  Above is the page from the “Art I Like” sketchbook I did which is based on a Schapiro fan.

    Oh boy, you have really outdone yourself today. Really great post, Kerfe.

    I clicked over here today and my heart sank to see this – it is a loss to the art world. I always feel conflicted “liking” posts announcing a death or a loss – but it is a “like” for the remembrance and for the life lived and the legacy we inherit. Thank you for sharing this with us!
