Article in Fine Art Connoisseur

December 2012 (pages 55-59)
I was privileged to speak with Linda Lee Alter a few months back about her incredible collection of art by women, which she recently gifted to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.  PAFA is celebrating this enormous and important donation with an exhibition (opening tonight!) which they call The Female Gaze: women artists making their world. I was thrilled that my editor at Fine Art Connoisseur allowed me to write on this topic which is so dear to my heart and even gave the piece what looks to me something like star billing in the magazine. Five pages, right in the middle! Aaah. Of course, Ms. Alter's genius was the spirit behind it, and the art speaks for itself, but here's what I wrote:

Many thanks also to Robert Cozzolino, the senior curator at PAFA, for sharing his insights with me!

Alumni Spotlight interview

I am honored to be the subject of a really in-depth interview in the current issue of Preview Magazine, the publication of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. I was asked because of my position as the President of the PAFA Alumni Association Council. In this role I am relishing the challenge to get things done for my fellow alumni and am lucky to have the camaraderie, energy and mutual assistance of a wonderful council of PAFA alums and the strong support of many superb PAFA administrators and staff.

New Magazine piece

Fine Art Connoisseur, p. 92, October 2012

Not long ago I interviewed David Campbell Wilson for Fine Art Connoisseur magazine. Very pleased with how the piece came out, and how it looks. I just got my writer's copies of the magazine in the mail a few days ago, and it should be hitting the stands about now too.  David is an intriguing painter whose first one person show on the east coast is coming up next month at Rodger LaPelle Galleries.

"Lessons from Life" Vyacheslav Shchelokov

I just uploaded the 500th image to my online Women in the Act of Painting project. I am amazed at how fast this point has been reached. The project is in three Facebook albums for the moment, but a blog and a book are in the works. The response to the project has been overwhelming, and I am grateful for all the comments, encouragement and contributions of images. I have learned so much, and plenty more "life lessons" to come! Thank you everybody, I really couldn't have done it without you!
