Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects has an especially poignant and insightful show of two friends,…

“He Was Free and Brave”: Thomas Nozkowski, 1944-2019


“You don’t hear much these days about strength of character, but Tom had that, with kindness backed by confidence. As well, he was free and brave: a dissenting but platonic American.” These are the words of Schjeldahl who, with 20 other admirers and friends of the late artist joined me at artcritical in a garland of tributes. The other…

The artcritical Mailing List


I’m taking the liberty here of writing a message to personal contacts from my gmail address book because some friends and colleagues have complained recently that they have “fallen off” the artcritical mailing list.

Featured from THE LIST: Karen Heagle “Invocations” at Sargent’s Daughters


In the last century one might have visited modern masters at the Guggenheim or the Modern blithely unaware that the uniformed custodian at one’s side was another in the making, say Jackson Pollock or Robert Ryman.
