Print Magazine includes a nice write-up by Ellen Shapiro on Barbara Nessim’s retrospective at Bard in New York as well as some anecdotes from the conversation between Barbara and Gloria Steinem earlier in December.
“The media have changed, but Nessim’s advice to young artists hasn’t. “Find out who you are,” she says. “There’s only one of you. Mimicking someone else isn’t going to get you anywhere. And sketchbooks are the best way to find out who you are. Pick up a pencil and draw. Observe carefully. Make a still life. Draw from nature. When you find out who you are and let it flow, you will know what you need to do.”
