Film Review  September 7, 2012, by Kimberley Jones
"...Austrian painter Egon Schiele’s boldly sensual paintings were decried as pornographic in his era and, nearly a century after his death, his art still makes waves. One piece in particular, the tender Portrait of Wally, ignited an art-world war and influenced the moral position of museums on the issue of Nazi plunder...."

A Tug of War Between Art and Morality
Andrew Shea's 'Portrait of Wally' follows the trail of Nazi plunder
Screens Story  September 7, 2012, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...By that point the painting – titled Portrait of Wally, after Schiele's mistress and muse Valerie "Wally" Neuzil – had been locked in a crate for more than 10 years, the much-contested centerpiece of a federal forfeiture case that had been brought by the United States Customs Service against the work's owner, Austrian art collector and museum curator Rudolf Leopold. At the time the complaint was filed, Portrait of Wally had been hanging on a wall at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, part of a celebrated exhibit of Schiele's work on loan from the Leopold Museum in Vienna..."

"...What’s up with Rodney Dangerfield? His latter-day film career seems intent on turning his famed comedy routine about getting “no respect” into some kind of precocious epitaph.

“Elizabeth Chapin: Careful/Uncareful” at Wally Workman Gallery

Arts Review  December 15, 2016, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...By honoring the complexity of an individual, Chapin's work deepens our humanity. It forces us to not only look, but to see as well. Elizabeth Chapin: “Careful/Uncareful”Wally Workman Gallery, 1202 W..."

“Anne Siems: Weaving” at Wally Workman Gallery
The disembodied heads that populate this solo exhibition suggest departed women but are still beautiful and empowered
Arts Review  April 13, 2017, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...However, Siems' postures, if you can call them that, could never be described as "stiff," even if her faces do manage the enigmatic air of old worlds. These bodies, instead, should be called liquid; they should be called air. “Anne Siems: Weaving”Wally Workman Gallery, 1202 W..."

Local Palette
Arts Story  November 3, 1995
"...Pomponio's "Electro -- Mystic Machine" sculptures are meticulously crafted from archaic electro--mechanical contraptions that pull viewers into an H.G. Wells mad scientist's time warp of light, sight, sound, and movement. Wally Vogel's post apocalyptic, melt-down television set exposes a wasteland of blown circuit boards, transistors, fuses, severed wires, and fizzled connections, all illuminated by two eerily iridescent, twisted coils of neon -- the last living elements in this pile of electrical jetsam...."

"...LIE DOWN WITH DOGSD: Wally White; with White, Randy Becker, Darren Dryden, Bash Halow, James Sexton, Michael Richoz. The life lessons learned by by the gay Everyboy in Wally White's semi-autobiographical Lie Down With Dogs don't evoke much of an empathetic response: As the clichŽ goes, you had to be there. It's an experience much like being cornered by someone at a party for an enthusiastic telling of "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" - the holiday, in this instancce, spent in homo-friendly Provincetown, Massachusetts - and wondering if the story has a point..."
