Last year I was invited to become a member of the Petticoat Painters. To be honest I did not know anything about them. I did a little investigating and thought it would benefit me as an artist to be a member of this very talented group of women.
I have not been disappointed. I have been overwhelmed by the talent, spirit and amazing personalities of this group of women. I feel honored and privileged to be a member.
Peter and Marcia Christ have created a documentary covering the history of the Petticoat Painters over the last sixty years. Each artist, the founder, and others from the Sarasota area are interviewed in this fascinating story of women determined to wade against the tide of predominately male artists.
