Featured Artist

   

Margarethe Brummermann

Margarethe loves to draw on her background in the life sciences in her work as a watercolor painter.

Born and raised in Dortmund, Germany, she received her M.S. and Ph.D. in Biology from the Ruhr University of Bochum and the Max-Planck Institute in Bad Nauheim, Germany. She worked as a researcher and teacher at universities and field stations in France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Norway, New Zealand, and the United States and is now associated with the Entomology Department of the University of Arizona as well as running her own consulting business for natural history resources.

Parallel to her science career she developed her artistic talents. In Europe she had access to art museums and collections at an early age. As a teenager, she studied life drawing and etching at the Academy for Photography and Design in Dortmund, illustrated articles for an equestrian magazine, and experimented with many different media: sculpture, batik, oil paintings, and photographs. Today, watercolors are her preferred medium. In Arizona she refined her skills through studies at the Scottsdale Artists School, with instructors like Jim Kosvanec, Kevin McPhearson, Raleigh Kinney, and Matt Smith. She also spent three years in Laguna Beach, where she studied the work of the California Impressionists and Plein Air Painters.

In 2002 she and her husband Randall Kaul settled with four dogs and two cats in the pristine desert of the Tucson Mountains. The plant and animal life of her little desert preserve are the best inspiration for her paintings. The models for all of her cactus flowers and agave portraits are growing right in her backyard. Cottontails and Jackrabbits and also the neighbors’ horses drop in regularly to have their portraits taken.

Featured Artist:

   

Pat Aguilar

Pat Aguilar (Patricia Jean Druener) was born in New York City in 1949. Her father came as a boy from Germany and her mother was born in Tupelo, Mississippi. Growing up in the military exposed Pat to different cultures, both in the United States and Germany.

Being a child in the 1950’s was very confusing for a girl. We were told we didn’t need higher education (think about a career), “You’ll just get married anyway.” Also, it was so very important to be attractive, “How else will you get a man?” Being yourself didn’t do it.

By the time she was forming her own opinion, Pat had strong feelings against inequality, whether it was Black/White, Jew/Gentile, Male/Female.

Betty Friedan made a big difference in Pat’s life. She knew by reading The Feminine Mystique, she could do anything she wanted to do, career-wise, family, etc. Ms. Friedan had a gentle and educative touch, a more sensible approach at being all, as a woman.

Pat tried to help other women by becoming active in NOW and other less known women’s conscience raising groups.

While attending college for accounting, Pat was encouraged to use the other half of her brain, so she took up pottery. Ms. Aguilar has been a potter for over 35 years now, specializing in miniature houses, masks, boxes, etc. (slab work mostly).

In 1973, Pat married Ed Aguilar and moved west. They now have three children and four grandchildren.
