Interview with painters Pharaoh Baker and his apprentice Ellis Wright

Interview with painters Pharaoh Baker and his apprentice Ellis Wright

Date
1984-01-12
Description
One audio cassette. Baker served as a master artist to apprentice Wright in the 1984-1985 apprenticeship program. In the interview, they discuss learning painting; where they paint; subjects and inspirations; influences (Picasso, Van Gogh, El Greco); sculpture; African American culture; the goals of an artist; various mediums; and art perspectives. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
