VCS faulty member Eric Doeringer’s current exhibition “Paintings & Sculpture” at Mulherin & Pollard on the Lower East Side just received a wonderful review by New York Times art critic Roberta Smith. Here’s a brief quote:
In his latest exhibition, Mr. Doeringer redoes Andy Warhol’s series of 1965 Campbell’s soup cans, working in silk-screen and following as closely as possible to Warhol’s revised palette, which abandoned the classic red and white cans on white of 1962. This means hot, smartly paired combinations, like orange and brown, green and purple, and green and tomato red that anoint Warhol as the Josef Albers of Pop art. The results are beautifully made and solid-looking.

Eric teaches the course Contemporary Art New York for the Visual & Critical Studies department in the SVA Summer Pre-College program, which allows high school students to earn college credit and study art and design in much more depth than most high school art programs allow. Here is the new SVA catalog description for Eric’s course:
Contemporary Art New York
New York City is known as the center of the art world. No other city can rival New York’s concentration of artists, cultural institutions, and creative energy. Using the city as our classroom, we will explore what it means to be an artist in the 21st century. Studio projects incorporating drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography will be augmented with visits to museums, galleries, and artists’ studios. Students will be encouraged to think creatively and to develop the personal and conceptual aspects of their artwork.
A more detailed description of the course is also available at the Visual & Critical Studies link in the Course Offerings section of the SVA Pre-College Summer Program webpage.
