New guest blogger: Victoria Gannon

Thanks to Sarah Stephenson for her terrific posts. We’re pleased she put her current art criticism education in practice on this site.

Up next is Victoria Gannon. Victoria was born and raised in Northern California, as were both her parents, and she enjoys an ambivalent relationship with her home state. She currently spends her time writing and editing for Art Practical, an online journal covering Bay Area visual culture whose most recent issue explored the intersections of art, agriculture, and cooking. She’s interested in art for its ability to embody abstract ideas; she enjoys writing about art for the challenge of translating those ideas into clear language. She earned a degree in English from Mt. Holyoke College, in South Hadley, Mass., and received a master’s degree in Visual and Critical Studies from California College of the Arts, in San Francisco.
