Golden Dawn and 3D Gallery shows the work of:

Pablita Velarde, Helen Hardin, and

Margarete Bagshaw.

They are the only known three generational, full-time, 

professional, female painters.

    Here’s what’s new…

A while ago, I got an email from a client who saw a Margarete image in the newspaper that day. Intrigued, I started looking and found this…

Christina “Steenz” Stewart is a St. Louis based cartoonist, editor, and professor. She’s the cartoonist on the syndicated comic strip ‘Heart Of The City’, the co-creator of Dwayne McDuffie Award winning GN Archival Quality, and is featured in short story anthologies such as Eisner and Ignatz Award-Winning Elements: Fire, Mine!, and Dead Beats.

I spoke with her to learn how she found Margarete’s work. “In art school, Margarete was an artist we studied in our Modernist Abstract course” she told me.

One more excellent reason to help and donate to The Margarete Bagshaw Memorial Painting Scholarship at IAIA.
