The title Entropvisions is in homage to my mother, the poet and art critic, Harriet Zinnes. In 1990 New Directions published a collection of her poems titled Entropisms, a word she made-up combining entropy - the tendency toward disorder - and tropism - the growth towards or away from a stimulus. Similarly, my short reviews combine entropy and tropism by suggesting growth towards a vision of art from the chaos of the art world.

Curator Alan Goolman and the thelockwoodgallery1 in Kingston, NY have just opened an elegant exhibition of work by Steven Alexander and Grace Bakst Wapner, up through July 30. Steven's geometrically-based rectangles organize delicately nuanced color fields through placement and size, adding a slightly fringed border at the canvas edges that reinforces the delicacy of the color. Wapner's wall hangings layer semi-transparent materials to create delicate atmospheres of dreamy space.
