Thinking about... Beverly Pepper 

I recently bought an old issue of Arts Magazine, dated September 1979. I love reading through old art magazines to see how the writing style has changed, discover artists from decades ago whose careers have since faded out and just get a sense of what was happening back when in the art world. I read a review of Beverly Pepper's work, an artist whose name and style I know but not very well. What an amazing career. I loved these tabletop sculptures, a departure from her usually monumental and site-specific work. See More.
