David Morrison's "Bird Nests" series exhibiting at Carnegie Mellon University in

ELEMENTS - March19-June 30, 2015

This exhibition features drawings and watercolors of bird nests with a focus on the natural and man-made materials incorporated into these architectural structures. Photographs of forest understory will transport the viewer between the landscape and the ephemeral artifacts that signify the remains of a cycle of building, incubating, nesting and fledging. The featured artists are Sue Abramson, Wendy Brockman, David Morrison and Kate Nessler. The creators of these drawings and watercolors of bird nests and photographs of transitional landscapes are inspired by the relationship of the nest to time, place, music and architecture. Each artist has imbued the structures and the materials used and the locations and environments where built with their individual insight and perspective. Also included in the exhibition is a selection of birds, nests and eggs on loan from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

Mary Reilly Memorializes Devotion, Scrawled on Trees


Graffiti Trees,” a new exhibition of drawings by Mary Reilly, marks a tangential departure for the artist; moving away from photorealistic portrayals of natural, open spaces, she homes in on human intervention in the landscape, specifically, the scarred surfaces of tree trunks.

Susan Schwalb's article published -



"At a time when art is being redefined by new and rapidly changing digital tools and technology that often deny the man-made mark, silverpoint offers artists a connection with a potent creative tradition. The fine delicate lines inevitably reveal the artist's hand: an affirmation of human presence."

Art New England Review -Marietta Hoferer-"Appearance of Clarity: Works in Black and White" show in Stowe, Vermont, curated by Amy Rahn.

by Meg Brazill


"Hoferer's works on paper, made from graphite and thousands of small squares of glossy strapping tape, are emblematic of the show since, behind the minimatlist visuals, a set of rule-based logic exists. The resultant imagery resembles snowflakes, textile patterns, or molecular structures. Patterns shift and change as you move toward them, and seem to disappear or reappear in systematic variations."

The renowned silverpoint and metalpoint artist’s work has been exhibited internationally in museum and gallery exhibitions since the 1970s.

Gallery Hopping on Thursdays: BY KAREN VANEGAS-

In Chelsea, Garvey | Simon Art Access will be presenting new metalpoint drawings by artist, Susan Schwalb

October 2, 2013

An artist’s approach to line and color perpetually dictates the feelings that their artwork will evoke from viewers. It is a critical facet of the aesthetic process that grants complexity to art and sets styles apart. This is one reason we often find mid-career and established artists rigorously developing their craft, even after they hit a career peak. With that in mind, we explore exhibitions in New York City showcasing recent work by Bill Scott and Susan Schwalb, two passionate artists who continue to capture the attention of the selective art world with their arresting artwork.

Julia Randall featured in Beautiful Decay

May 24, 2013

"The first fantastically pliable medium we ever enjoyed sloppily sculpting with our teeth, molding around our gums, and blowing joyful pockets of life into, is the perfect subject matter for artist Julie Randall, whose entire body of work teeters between mystical and marvelously grotesque.

“Blown,” her most recent series, is a deep meditation on, yes, chewing gum: it’s strange shapely pleasure, born from a certain oral fixation which moves beyond youth and into darker more cryptic mouths."
