We just heard from Michael Winger that Bill Taylor died. Bill Was Sy Gresser’s teacher, and it’s mean a lot for us to get to see the progression of work from one generation to the next. From Bill, to Sy, to Michael. It’s been a rare and unusual gift. I finally was able to really see the connection between Sy and Bill at their recent UMUC show which we posted here. This is a tremendous loss for the DC area art scene. I hear their show may remain up for a few extra days, so I highly suggest you see it while you can.
For some more background about Bill and Sy, please read this article at the City Paper. I was so pleased to see them write this artist’s profile.
