Since 2000, I have written hundreds of features, reviews, interviews and essays for regional, national, and international publications.
Below is a small sample of arts criticism and selected features.
Art criticism and essays:
Selected art criticism and essays include The Advent of Global Modern – World’s Fairs at Carnegie Museum of Art, Factory Direct at The Andy Warhol Museum, Parallel Universe at Wood Street Galleries, Finnbogi Petursson and Jan Tichy at Wood Street Galleries, new digital-era media in Getting Closer at FE Gallery, an interview with Trevor Paglen, architectural photographs by Julius Shulman at Carnegie Museum of Art, Tim Kaulen retrospective at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, and numerous pieces for the Carnegie’s blogs.
Blinded / Science:
Along with arts writing I’ve done a good bit of science- and environment-related writing recently, including pieces such as features on Pittsburgh’s Urban Forest and the Phipps Center for Sustainable Landscapes, this feature on Temple Grandin, the famed activist for people with autism, a magazine section of articles on scientific research I edited for Pitt Med (Investigations), and even an art review of a show based on new art/science hybrids, Intimate Science at the Miller Gallery.
