Tim Saternow’s paintings explore the lost and forgotten areas that exist around the edges of urban centers. Beyond the US, Tim’s art has been featured in the sixth biennial Watercolor Festival in Fabriano, Italy, and an international art salon in Qingdao, China, where he received the bronze award for watercolor. He has done set and lighting design for Broadway shows and worked in TV and film design, even earning an Emmy Award nomination for art direction.
“The reality is [that] an art career cannot be sustained on love alone ... People ask me constantly, ‘How long did it take you to paint this?’ And my [serious] answer is ‘about 30 years.’ That is an accurate accounting for the years of my study and practice … I find maintaining a steady income extremely difficult. I need help in anticipating the variability of the art market and of collectors’ individual rhythms of buying.”
