Bill Warrell: Paintings inspired by Michael Wilderman’s photos

These two artists have built their careers in the Washington DC area, steeped in great jazz performance and presentation, including association with District Curators/, Transparent Productions, CapitalBop, DC Jazz Festival, and the Logan Fringe Arts Space. Michael has spent four decades in DC documenting performances for jazz magazines, and producing soulful portraits of iconic jazz masters. Both artist were inspired by Sun Ra, Charles Mingus, Don Pullen, and Lester Bowie; as well as the veteran and younger generations of DC jazz artists today.
