History

Peripheral Vision Press was launched in April 2016 by Texas artist, critic, and art historian Scott Gleeson in response to artists' lack of access to substantive critical publications, to the proliferation of popular blogs limited in scope and format, and to the needs of artists whose work outstrips the critical vocabularies of many art writers.
