Liz Goldner covers a broad range of subjects in her articles, profiles and reviews. She reports on artists — from figurative to conceptual, to Light and Space, to graffiti. She writes articles on the merging of art with nature, of art with science, environmental art and California Scene Painting, among numerous other art related topics. She dialogues with artists, art lovers and arts administrators in interviews, on studio visits and at the many exhibitions she attends.
