The Columbus Dispatch Visual Arts, Sunday, December 18, 2011, Melissa Starker, Preserved Portraits, The Springfield Museum of Art, Springfield, OH,  “It’s a light bright group of images, and together they form an amusing record of hairstyles from the past few decades.  The more dramatic effect, however, is one of transforming something common and ephemeral, such as school portraits, into a sprawling family portrait like no other. It’s a thing for the ages, in which the individual vision of the artist in the family becomes an integral part of future memories.”

The Columbus Dispatch Visual Arts, Sunday, October 26, 1999, Christopher Yates, Three Places in Ohio, The Cultural Arts Center, Columbus, OH, “In her body of work, she appears to use photographs to explore and learn.  By documenting what a society values, discards and reveres, she discovers and reveals the essence of a community.”

The Columbus Dispatch Visual Arts, Sunday, October 25, 1997, Jacqueline Hall, Arles and After, Lanning Gallery, Columbus, OH  “Vogel’s photographic work divides into two vastly different categories. Her Book of Daze, which relates directly to incidents of the trip to France, is what she describes as Photoshop collages.  They are witty interpretations of well-known paintings, especially Van Gogh’s, and achieve a hilarious narrative. Her “Duratran” back lighted boxes are nostalgic images that investigate the fragility of life and the passage of time.”

The Columbus Dispatch Visual Arts, Sunday, June 16, 1996, Jacqueline Hall, Extending the Portrait, The Cultural Arts Center, Columbus, OH, “Vogel uses color with exquisite delicacy in double-exposed photographs.  The result is eerie and causes one to ponder the meaning and value of time and memories.”

The Columbus Dispatch Visual Arts, Sunday, February 20, 1994, Lesley Constable, The Ohio State University Newark Branch Gallery, Newark, OH, “Vogel’s photo-collage still lifes, featuring wisps from the past such as old photos and archaic objects are laced with bittersweet longing peppered with healthy self-aware humor.”

The Columbus Dispatch Visual Arts, Sunday, February 14, 1993, Jeff Briggs, Ohio Dominican University, Werle Gallery, Columbus, OH, “Using painting, collage and assemblage with double-exposed color film, Barbara Vogel produces complex images whose wistful brooding about time past is enhanced by intuitive visual control.  Like a long-held minor cord, the cumulative effect of the photographs brings the viewer to a satori- a moment of awareness that time is both real and terrible.”

The Columbus Dispatch Visual Arts, Sunday, September 27, 1992, Lesley Constable, Franklin University, Bunte Gallery, Columbus, OH,  “Vogel’s strong suit is that she is able to swim in an intuitive sea, free to make associations and seemingly random connections that, once she surfaces, become recognizable as a collective reality. Vogel consistently grapples with an impressive and intuitively complex multiplicity of ideas.”
