Visual Arts: Recent Writing

From the show at the Bockley Gallery

Over the years I’ve covered visual art for Minnesota Magazine, mnartists.org, and various other publications. In late 2010, I was asked to write about the visual arts for City Pages. My assignments are largely A-List items (of about 200 words) on upcoming openings and exhibitions. It’s not criticism, but occasionally I’m asked to contribute a longer piece on a visual artist, which allows me greater freedom to bring my critical faculties to bear on their work. I love writing these mini-essays (which is how I think of them) because I challenge myself to intertwine my own perceptions of and opinions on an artist’s work with a bit of cultural context and (hopefully) some wit. Let me know what you think.
