Clarice Esther Piller – The Parkinson Paintings

June 3 @ 6:00 pm - June 4 @ 9:00 pm

Free

Clarice (Claire) Esther Piller was born in 1931 in Cook County, Illinois to Holocaust escapees.  She studied fine art and music, and became a prolific and accomplished artist producing hundreds of pieces in whatever style appealed to her, or she developed. She taught art and piano to children for years until a fire destroyed her studio and much of her work.

The pieces you see at the Galeria span decades, with the “Parkinson Paintings” being the most recent before she lost most of her motor control.

Claire passed away in March of 2012, survived by her 2 children.

Curated by Maria Gonzalez.
