FEATURED ARTIST Pearlie Taylor- December 2011

"Art is Business"

Pearlie studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and the Historic South Side Community Art Center under Dr. Margaret Burroughs. Pearlie’s artwork has been described as a mixture of abstract modern and contemporary. Her influences range from Jackson Pollack, Richard Dempsey to Dale Chiluly. Pearlie has worked in a variety of mediums but more often chooses acrylics for the depth of color and her wet in wet painting style.
Hustle and Flow

Pearlie is the recipient of African American Alliance of the Arts Award for Excellence in Abstract Art. In 2008 her paintings were recognized by the Museum of Science and Industry Black Creativity Exhibit.
Her work is currently being shown at Gallery Guichard in Chicago.
