Baer memorial art competition last Wednesday during a reception in her honor at the Beverly Art ccnter,3153 W. lllth st. Emily Pinkowski, 93, a DeerfleM artist, with a definite affinity for all things mechanical, entered her acrylic on masonite wort, "Truckin 1 on the Champs Elysees," in the art competition open by invitation only to a limited number of active Chlcagoland artists and named for the art center's founder, Arthur A. Baer. Realtor and patron of the arts, Arthur RuMoH, sponsored the competition to honor the memory of his friend, a Chicago area banker and Southwest community cfvic and cultural leader. Rubloff, wbo serves as a center director, also intended to aid the center in its cultural endeavors and encourage the work of local artists. Two prominent jurors who selected the final piece were HaroW Joachim, curator of prints and drawings, and John Keefe, curator of decorative arts, both colleagues at the Art institute. Joachim was drawn to Pinkowskl's entry as a "magnet, seeing it portray a decisive, strong-personality with a most compelling image." "The artist is a machine age romanticist. Her subject could be a gimmick, but instead, this intriguing three dimentional piece works well here as the texture of the surface becomes part of the whole expression," he said. Keefe agreed that the winning work was "a valid artistic expression drawn from a most ordinary object" The artist prefers mechanical subjects, personally interpreting life from inanimate objects such as pipes, wires and tubes and seeing them as extensions of human muscle. A founding member of Artemisia gallery, her 1976 ex- 'hibit there was "Smashed Cars," all horizontal in format, suggesting strata in earth layers and, representing to the artist, a new nature landscape. Another of her mechanical art pieces was included as an illustration to a story on local art In the December, 1976, issue of Chicago magazine.
