Grace Hartigan, the renowned artist and educator who died over the weekend at the age of 86, was a painter's painter. "The thing that's been incredible is that one way or another, I've been able to arrange my life so that I could paint every day," she told The Sun in a 2001 interview. "I have great plans to live as long as Georgia O'Keeffe," she added. Ms. O'Keeffe lived to 98, and Ms. Hartigan said she needed the time because "there's a lot of work I still want to do." Ms. Hartigan was not granted that wish, but what she accomplished over a career spanning more than six decades was little short of astonishing.

Grace Hartigan, who ultimately found a second career offering her wisdom and advice to generations of young painters at the Maryland Institute College of Art, died of liver failure yesterday at the Lorien Mays Chapel nursing home. She was 86. "I feel that I am an aristocrat as far as painting is concerned; I believe in beautiful drawing, in elegance, in luminous color and light," she said in a 1990 biography.

Hair straighteners and vases of silk flowers are scattered about the room, along with textbooks and the occasional dirty dish. The students at Dulaney Crescent in Towson, however, are an experiment in campus life, part of a Goucher College pilot program that allows young men and women to share apartments.

A meticulously rendered pencil drawing of a 25-foot-tall Baltimore street lamp blown up lifesize and pinned to the gallery wall. A charcoal image of a batting cage whose chain link fencing resembles a sticky spider's web. A graphite drawing of an empty tin pail and a fluid splash of startling blue that flies through the air.
