Jade Doskow is featured at Slate and Smithsonian Magazine for her Lost Utopias project. Meanwhile, her successful Kickstarter campaign raised almost $15,000 to print a Lost Utopias monograph. Of Jade’s work, Smithsonian writes, “She has photographed the remnants of visions past, the architectural wonders and landscapes that celebrated human glory and potential.”

John A. Parks was interviewed at Artists Network on the topic of painting New York City. Drawing from years of teaching wisdom, John observes that painting is “perceptual training, not the acquiring of a manual skill.” See our review of John’s recent solo show in Chelsea.
