Mainstreaming the Muse by Walter Askin To be an artist is to engage in the wonderfully fulfilling, dangerous, and intensively social act of creating images and propositions as we search for visual ideas resonant with emerging beliefs and values. It is a privilege, a joy, a delight, and quite often a dire necessity to be […]

Pasadena ArtNight: Finding Walter

Pasadena ArtNight: Finding Walter

Walter Askin invites us into his home, into his gallery, into his workspace with the gentlest of smiles, voice, and…essence? His movements aren’t slow, they’re just relaxed in a measured way, a bit like how he speaks. And he speaks a lot. His voice soothing, his humor slid in like a secret note being passed […]

Seeking Spirits with J. Michael Walker

Seeking Spirits with J. Michael Walker

A lot goes on in J. Michael Walker’s work. You need time, a moment, maybe a little stillness and quiet to take it all in, to hear the birds, to feel the rustle of the wind, the ache of years, the magic of life, to be infused by the characters and souls he nurtures to […]

Anne-Elizabeth Sobieski, Painter

Anne-Elizabeth Sobieski, Painter

It is always uplifting to get to know someone who is spending her life pursuing work that gives her great pleasure, and so I was greatly inspired after meeting Pasadena native and artist Anne-Elizabeth Sobieski. I sat down with this cheerful painter, teacher, and student to talk about her nearly 20-year love of painting and the […]

Jacquelyn McBain, Painter – Part 1

Jacquelyn McBain, Painter – Part 1

Pasadena artist Jacquelyn McBain doesn’t produce a lot of work, but she works very, very hard, which is evident when you see her paintings — they are astonishingly detailed, richly colorful and as meticulously crafted as any of the Old Masters. Her work doesn’t get to be seen often enough locally; she is represented by […]
