Bill Pangburn studied fine arts at the Phillips-Universitaet, Marburg an der Lahn, Germany; Tulane University (BA), New Orleans, LA; and Pratt Institute (MFA), Brooklyn, NY.A professional artist who works in painting, printmaking, and installations, he is currently an adjunct professor for studio art at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and the director of the Anya and Andrew Shiva Gallery at John Jay College.
Avery continues to exploit the constraints inherent in traditional black and
white line etching in his studio in San Francisco for his own suspect purposes.
His work is included in the collections of the Library of Congress, the Fogg
Museum at Harvard University, the New York Public Library, the Achenbach
Foundation for the Graphic Arts, the Stanford University Library among others,
and has been noted in the New York Times. Originally trained as a classical
musician, he discovered etching almost by accident in a class at the local
community college. After learning the basic techniques, he intently pursued his
own course of discovery, developing an exceptional technique and creating a
remarkable body of finely wrought miniature etchings and drypoints. Even though
“black and white doesn’t sell”, he has eschewed the use of color, finding the
subtleties and tonalities of black and white most capable of creating the psychological
mood that allows his work to be effective.
