ARTICLES AND REVIEWS:

Wasserman, Nadine. "Despite its wide array of style and subjects–or maybe because of them–the AAP's 102nd annual show has plenty of rewards". Pittsburgh City Paper. Wednesday, June 19, 2013. "Another piece that explores geometry is George Roland's computer animation Quadpainter in which squares morph into new shapes and colors. The proximity of this piece to prints by Lenore Thomas and sculptures by Marjorie F. Shipe make for an interesting examination of the visual language of abstraction."
Thomas, Mary. "Art Review: AAP Annual a Visual Feast". Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Wednesday, August 13, 2008. "Seventeen awards were presented opening night, including the Carnegie Museum of Art Purchase Award to George Roland for his mesmerizing, color saturated, computer generated Diskfield...."
