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.

Date
1989-06-25

He soon owned his own, and made helmets. Also made and fixed engines and pumps.

Nick Toth helped his grandfather throughout the interview. Continued on C89-24 and C89-35. Recorded at the Sponge Industry Folk Arts festival, festival sounds can be heard throughout. The festival was held June 24-25, 1989 to celebrate Tarpon Springs heritage of sponge diving, a practice that dated back to the 1890s. By 1905, when 500 Greek immigrants answered an ad to be sponge divers, the town acquired a distinctive Greek flavor, as the Greek Americans thrived in the sponge industry. At one point, Florida provided 95% of the nation's sponges. Although today over fishing and synthetic materials have undercut the sponge diving industry, the tradition lives on in Greek families, and through tourism.
