Participation was voluntary and artists convened weekly with their painting supplies, ready to work together on individual projects in a friendly and supportive environment. Current participants include Ann Ponce, Bonnie Zak, Fran Edmondson, Fran Mazur, Kate Tully, Margaret Nicosia, Mary Barnes Gingrich, Michael Latala, Meredith Dytch, Patricia Larkin Green, and Thomas Allen Pauly.“Painting Together – How We Grow as Artists,” presented by The Wilson Artists’ Group, is part of Chicago Artist’ Month 2011, the sixteenth annual celebration of Chicago’s vibrant visual art community presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, and the Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture.
