Thanks to painter and arts writer Patrick Neal for his coverage of “Painting Matters Now”, a panel on the art of painting held last week at Pratt Institute. You’ll find Neal’s article on the invaluable arts website Hyperallergic. Thanks, as well, to Brett Baker for listing the piece on the equally invaluable Painters Table.
