Paintingaday (PAD) was conceived by artist Sara Graham to demystify contemporary artmaking from the margins of everyday life. PAD is a continuation of sculptureaday (SAD), a joint art project with art writer Bryne McLaughlin that began in 2013. Specializing in found visual circumstances or unexpected observations within the urban environment, PAD playfully records the everyday with a purposeful curiosity. PAD’s list of artist contributors includes Matthew Beattie, Donna Akrey, Earl Miller, Caitlin McGuire, Nicole Collins, Barbara Lounder and Carly Butler.
