Untitled, 1979 acrylic on canvas 10”x10”
Painted in my second year at Bard College. I was trying to figure out a way of making a painting that felt “authentic”, and at the same time was very excited about the work or people like Joe Zucker, Nicholas Africano, Valerie Jaudon and Hollis Sigler. Basically anyone that Holly Solomon was showing at the time.
This ended up leading me in two directions: In the immediate sense I started making panting/constructions that increasingly relied on the built up brushstroke and gel medium/rhoplex to make surfaces that were thick and torturous. Years later, in 1995, I began making small, 9”x12” stripe paintings on board. They were received  with some consternation when I showed them in San Francisco.

Hi all! Welcome back!

Just wanted to let you know, the application process for new editors has started. We are doing things a little differently this year and having all interested folks fill out an application online prior to an interview. If you’re interested and want to apply (and go to Bard), email us at lux@bard.edu and we will send it your way! We’re looking for about 2-3 new editors per department—Prose, Poetry, and Art—and the application will ask you to demonstrate your editorial and curatorial abilities and knowledge, as well as as some general questions about your availability and how you feel about grammar. :)

Enjoy the last Sunday before classes start! <3333

“Phooey, I say, on all white-shoe college boys who edit their campus literary magazines. Give me an honest con man any day.”

― J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey

Are you interested in publishing? Do you write or create visual art? Did you run your high school lit-mag? Do you enjoy being ruthlessly critical, crying about good prose, seasonal color accents, and steel shelving?

Lux Literary Magazine (Bard’s semiannual undergraduate lit-mag) is looking for a batch of new first-year editors, as well as submissions of art and writing for our fall issue. This informational session will introduce Lux’s purpose, mission, and structure, and show various ways to get involved in what we do.

If you are unable to attend this informational session, but would like to receive more information on applying to be an editor, please contact us at lux@bard.edu

If you are interested in submitting your work for publication, please send it to lux@bard.edu for review. Thank you!

SUNDAY, AUGUST 24th, RED ROOM, CAMPUS CENTER
BE THERE

Anonymous said: How do you apply to be on staff?

We will be holding an L&T info session on Sunday the 24th to discuss that, so if you are a freshman, try to go to it! But otherwise, send us an email at lux.bard@gmail.com and introduce yourself! Include your interests and background in magazine and editing work, and whatever else you wish to include, and we will email you back as soon as we have a date for them. Also come up to our table at Club Fair (once the semester begins) and give us your name and chat a little! Once school has started all of the editors will meet and we will discuss when we want interviews to be scheduled, as well as assess the positions we are looking for (although it doesn’t matter if we need art and you want to do fiction, interview with us anyway!)

If you have anymore questions feel free to email us!

All the best,

LUX

P.S. Just a reminder that staff cannot submit to Lux, because we are interested in curating a magazine based on the fantastic work of our peers, and it would be a conflict of interest to include ourselves. :)

Oh hello, Bard Class of 2018!

This is a little letter to you all just to say hi, and to welcome all of you to Bard this August! You may not know who we are (or maybe you do!) so I thought it would be best to formally introduce you to Lux Literary Magazine. Lux is one of Bard’s many publications, a literary and arts magazine. Here is our mission statement:

Lux Literary magazine is the only print publication at Bard focused entirely on student work. It is funded, edited, and published bi-annually entirely by Bard students. We are dedicated to publishing the written and visual art of our peers. By creating an open venue for student work, we aim to promote expression and exchange amongst student writers and artists. 

We do not publish: self-help, FYSEM papers, misdirected submissions to Boobs at Bard, 3-D objects, or videos (we just don’t know how to publish them).  All other poetry, prose, and art can be sent to lux@bard.edu

As a magazine, we publish biannually from submissions we gather over the semester, but we also run the Lux Lending Library, a free book exchange which operates from Sawkill where we have plenty of books! So try to check it out before you purchase things for the semester, it’s bring a book take a book and we’re organized by labeled categories, so bring some books you don’t want and have a feast of books! WE HAVE SO MANY FYSEM BOOKS! So check us out once L&T starts!. And if you’re free on Sunday the 24th at 6:30, we are going to be having an info session about our magazine and how you can apply to be an editor :) 
For further inquiries, send us a message or email us at lux@bard.edu.

Safe travels to Bardland this weekend!
