Linda Pace (b. 1945, San Antonio, Texas, d. 2007) used the symbolic potency of everyday objects in her drawings and assemblages. She frequently captured ideas from her dreams and explored the idea that utilitarian objects can convey an aesthetic power not otherwise imagined, especially when expressed through the transformative process of being rendered into works of art. Linda began her contemporary art practice later in life, and though she gravitated towards drawing, she also worked in mediums such as assemblage and sculpture. She founded the Artpace International Artist in Residency program in 1995 in order to bring creative awareness to San Antonio, and give a space to contemporary artists to create their work. She relished the ability to spend time with the artists and be able to assist in their creative process.
