Art Review: Tim Reitenbach’s “Fake” at Angela Meleca Gallery

 Jeff Regensburger Art Review: Tim Reitenbach’s “Fake” at Angela Meleca Gallery

It has been one year since Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States. Not surprisingly, this milestone has elicited every version of retrospective analysis you might imagine. Broadcast journalists fall over themselves to reach out to the base and the resistance alike. Experts are invoked, data is described, and pundits contort […]

Angela Meleca Gallery kicked off it’s fourth season of exhibitions with a bang. Utopia Banished, curated by George Rush and Ryland Wharton, presents a compelling visual exploration of our unflagging (and as yet unfulfilled) desire to create a perfect society. Using Kim Stanley Robinson’s award-winging Mars Trilogy as their inspiration, Rush and Wyland have assembled […]

Richard Sanford Richard Sanford Art Review: Nick George’s Degrees of Freedom

Contemporary photography, maybe epitomized in the popular consciousness by Cindy Sherman and Jeff Wall, seems to discard Cartier-Bresson’s “decisive moment” in favor of a vivisection of the moment, something pushing against the limitations of the box of the camera and the box of the print.

Katherine Kadish: Looking Back, Moving Forward

 Jeff Regensburger Katherine Kadish: Looking Back, Moving Forward

It’s been a long winter. It’s been a cold winter and it’s been a grey winter. It’s also been a winter that doesn’t appear to be in any particular hurry to leave. Even as I type this (ten days into spring?), there is snow on the ground. Perhaps that’s why Katherine Kadish’s new paintings and […]
