Reviews of Fern T. Apfel’s recent solo exhibition “Abide With Me”

at The Art Center of the Capital Region

"Looking at her paintings, one gets an expansive sense of humanity and a narrative timelessness that tethers the present to the past...Each tiny letter, number, and line is scrupulously studied and replicated with an exactitude reserved for an ancient scribe.”

Natasha Chuk, Cronogram Online Magazine, February 1, 2023

“Abide With Me” is a meditation on how we track our days. It also pays homage to the things we hold dear and tuck away, knowing someday we’ll want to see them again.”

Indiana Nash, The Daily Gazette February 8, 2023 

(in) "a work called “Remember Me”...a series of horizontal rows present handwritten names followed by ages…the names are some of the children killed in school violence in our country in the past half century.”

William Jaeger, Times Union, Albany, NY, January 31, 2023
