The Artist Sees Differently: Blair Sutton
Blair Sutton, Museum Assistant
How did you learn about the Phillips?
I visited the The Phillips Collection on a field trip about four years ago while attending Sweet Briar College (Sweet Briar, Virginia).
Do you feel you are inspired by the Phillips art?
Do you listen to anything as you paint?
Who’s your favorite artist in the collection?
I would have to say my favorite artist in the collection is Vincent van Gogh.
Do you collect other artwork – or anything?
Yes, I do collect other artwork. I am lucky to own an original Theresa Pollak ink on paper and a Charles Sibley painting on canvas.
And do you have a favorite Marjorie Phillips painting?
The night scene at the baseball stadium, Night Baseball.
