Posted 8/9/16

August 2016ReviewGary AagaardMerci Gallery, Tucson Most of us have opinions about things, especially about politics, society, and the current state of the world.

Tucson artist Gary Aagaard has the artistic ability to express all that in spades. Better yet, he uses humor and satire t... [more]

Words and ideas form the theme, to the detriment of visual experience. The sad part about this is that there is little attempt to make the ideas visual. The viewer faces rooms filled with not-very-interesting ideas and not-very-interesting reading, even to the inclusion of paintings of internet pages. There are... [more]

A couple of early paintings here show how much he was in its sway, particularly ''Susanna and the Elders'' (1953), a de Kooning-esque romp of bold, energetic forms in black and white marching di...

On the Front Lines by Jillian Russo | June 9, 2015 Since the passage of the GI Bill during World War II, thousands of veterans have studied at the Art Students League of New York. Returning World War II veterans rejuvenated the League, making it a site of experimentation and an incubator for postwar artists.

Posted 7/30/16

“Paintings of Women by the Handful,” by Benjamin Sutton, L Magazine (September 29, 2010) Since very nearly the earliest chapters of art history, women have been among artists’ two or three preferred subjects (or objects, following feminism’s reframing of that history).
