Richard Schmid and His Influence

"Richard Schmid and His Influence"

That could be the title of
almost any Palette and Chisel exhibition
held over the last 20 years.

Especially when you consider that the 12 artists
being shown will include:

Nancy Guzik
Rose Franzen
Scott Burdick
Sue Lyon
Paul Mullally
Clayton Beck III
Judith McCabe Renner

... all of whom have been P&C members
while living in Chicago
(and two of whom still are)

But sadly,
this upcoming exhibit
will be held
at the only American art club
older than the one at 1012 N. Dearborn ---
the Salmagundi Club in New York.

And just as sadly,
the show will only run for one week,
June 6-13, 2009

But let's face it,
NYC is a much bigger market,
and who wouldn't
prefer to show their paintings there?


This will be will be an exhibit
of the Schmid family and inner circle,
presumably curated
with the approval of Schmid himself.

But I'd really like to see
an art museum curate
an exhibit that includes the many artists,
like Jeremy Lipking ,
who have
seen Schmid's work, read his books,
and acknowledged his influence,
necessarily having ever personally
studied with him.

Will any of us live long enough
to see such an event?
