Hometown Expats
It's tempting to gripe about the well known pattern of artists moving into a crummy neighborhood to get cheap space; upgrading the area and making it cool; and then being priced out. DeWitt Cheng offers some upside reflections. More...


The Artist as Charity
It makes us feel very nice to see artists contributing their work for glittery charity events that support good causes, no doubt. But might there be a dark ring around such an apparently clean transaction? More...


Holocaust Memorials of Poland Cross Political Eras
Recently in Poland, Matthew Kangas encountered a series of Holocaust memorials that over a half century reflected changes in how and to what degree history and political reflection shapes aesthetic intent. More...


Jesús Moroles: Connecting Us to the Cosmos
Jesús Moroles died recently in a tragic car accident. He will be remembered as one of his generations major public artists and an absolute magician in the use of granite, which he used to create monuments connecting the earth to the cosmos. More...


Still Nothing Like Venice
It's got to be the most stressful to negotiate, chaotically presented art festival in the world, but between Venice itself and its impossibly sprawling Biennale there remains nothing of comparable excitement in the art world today. More...


An Aesthetic of Political Audacity
Are gender-based and political issues still viable in art criticism today? is the 13th question discussed by DeWitt Cheng in his series of responses to the venerable Irving Sandler. More...


“Getting” Abstraction. Or Not
Richard Speer continues to be dumbfounded by the remaining degree of public resistance to art that does not represent the familiar. Oddly, a dance performance recently provided him with the reason why. More...


Frye Salon
Historically under appreciated, the founding collection of the Frye Museum today can no longer be dismissed thanks to fresh knowledge. More...


Zombie Abstraction (Pt 3)
Abstraction in the 21st century remains both a vital and relevant part of today's art world, particularly in the right hands. More...


Time to Declare Victory
At the recent "Superscript" conference addressing "Arts Journalism in a Digital Age," James Yood listened to what has become a familiar litany of challenges and ills and comes to his own conclusion. More...


Writers and Art Mags
DeWitt Cheng continues his dialogue with Irving Sandler's 2012 questions to art writers: How do art magazine policies affect art criticism? More...


"When Rivers Flow Like a Stream of Glass"
Richard Speer's recent stay in New Zealand heightened his awareness of the relationship between color and place, of water deeply saturated yet also transparent. More...


“Abstract Expression to Colored Planes”
Midcentury American art is a particularly strong area of the Seattle Art Museum's collection. Matthew Kangas tours us through the particulars, from Arshile Gorky's masterpiece to Christopher Wilmarth's tragically shortened path towards greatness. More...


Zombie Abstraction (Pt 2)
The recent resurgence of optical abstraction goes well beyond rehashing 1960s-era Op Art. Conceptual, cosmological and emotional vantage points have been incorporated to great effect by artists alert to both scientific and speculative developments. More...


A Commencement Show
The commencement ritual is a key annual ritual at thousands of schools throughout the country. James Yood's longtime base, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, has raised buzz and controversy this year by announcing that Kanye West will receive an honorary doctorate next month. More...


Growing Beyond Disinfotainment
The art world has changed enormously over the last half-century. It is, after all, a mirror of society; but still, these changes reflect a steady loss of faith in the power of aesthetic meaning. We must demand better. More...


Alt-Weekly Arts Writing
VAS contributor Richard Speer is most familiar to Portland area readers for his 13-year run with Williamette Week. The response to the announcement of his departure prompts this reflection on where he's been, and where art writing may be going. More...


Virginia Wright (Pt 2)
The second of Matthew Kangas' two part appreciation of one half of one of Seattle's most important art patrons, Virginia Wright. More...


Zombie Abstraction (Pt 1)
David Rubin examines some of the early exemplars and what they did to empower and substantiate the abstract aesthetic. More...


Hey S-agers, Treasure Your Time
This message from James Yood is directed towards art pros now hitting their senior years, but the rest of you should listen up as well: stop griping, it doesn't help; better to focus on making your time memorable. More...
