Urban Legend

Watercolors by

Bill Bartelt 


When does something become an “Urban Legend”?

Sometimes it happens when we’re not watching. We go out the front door, walk down the street, and something seems a little different. Something is missing. Or there is a newness that we hadn’t noticed before. Didn’t there used to be a big chimney on top of that building? When did that house get built–and what was there before it? We come across an empty lot–wasn’t there something here just a few days ago? A familiar Iron Age bridge is now a sleek concrete span, a rail embankment that was covered in a half century of forest is now a neatly manicured garden. These things that have vanished, to me, have become legend. This collection of watercolor paintings is a visit to the city that was here just yesterday, or the day before yesterday.  – Bill Bartelt
