Jason Stopa’s paintings are included in “Fort Greene,” a group show at the new VENUS gallery in Los Angeles. The show “maps a web of connections between artists whose paths have crossed in different places at different points in time.” Jason teaches the SVACE course, “Conversations in Contemporary Painting.”

Jade Doskow, photography faculty member, was featured on Atlas Obscura for her recent book, Lost Utopias, which collects her series of photos of World Fair sites. Jade writes, “It’s because of the utopian and dystopian characters of these sites; because old buildings falling apart are not just old buildings falling apart. There is so much vision that was put into these daring structures.” Jade teaches the course, “Portfolio Workshop: Landscapes and the Built Environment.”
