Marathon Perspective: Katherine Earle, Teaching Assistant

When I first found my way to a New York Studio School course with Jilaine Jones a few years back, I did not have much experience working in three dimensions.  Beyond a rather spectacular failure to achieve my artistic vision in a block of rosewood in high school, I had mostly shied away from creating […]

What a great surprise it was the day I received a letter from Lilian the Associate Director of Nancy Margolis Gallery. At first, I thought how do they know me? Is this real?

Alumni Studio Visit: Rosie Lopeman (Certificate 2016)

NYSS: Describe a typical day in your studio. Rosie Lopeman: What feels meaningful keeps changing, so I’m finding ways to follow it.
