Paula McHugh Artist - Music as Muse

Art Prints

Paula McHugh, painter and musician, has created a series of oil, egg tempera, and watercolor paintings inspired by the titles of American fiddle tunes and folk songs. Traditional American music played on the fiddle, banjo, guitar, and dulcimer is a lively and informal music that is learned by ear and that has been passed down faithfully through the generations. It weaves together the musical legacy of America. Like the Regionalist Movement artists of the 1930s, Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart Curry, and Grant Wood, Paula McHugh conjures up iconic American images from the past using musical titles as her muse.
