SF Chronicle: Russell Chatham “Falls on Hard Times”

July 18, 2011 By: Marshall Cutchin

Though first published back in May, Sam Whiting’s San Francisco Chronicle update on Russell Chatham (who is a MidCurrent featured artist) is worth catching up on because of the detailed examination of the life and times of one of America’s finest living landscape painters.  In the piece, Chatham his “sole possessions in this universe are 10 gray T-shirts and three pairs of overalls.”  Chatham is reconstructing his life back in West Marin, California, Whiting reports, and the artist’s take on collections, boom and bust in Montana and being a better artist than ever before.
