  • Donna Tennant's review of "Asherah" at Anya Tish Gallery appeared in the June/July 2017 issue of art ltd magazine . "To say that Orna Feinstein is driven to create art is an understatement. The number of pieces she produces and the intricacy involved in making them is astonishing... Even after 20 years of creating variations on her iconic tree-ring motif, Feinstein still sees an infinite number of possibilities ahead, saying that she has just begun to scratch the surface.

  • A preview of the "Grids, Layers and Lines" show at Craighead Green Gallery by Michael Granberry appeared in the Dallas Morning News on March 24, 2017. "The result is printmaking that combines three-dimensional elements and feeds her soul as much as it underscores her rich talent as an artist."[ Full review - PDF]

  • "Asherah" , Orna Feinstein's sixth solo at Anya Tish Gallery, was reviewed on Texas Life Style Magazine by Helen Jones on March 20, 2017. "The tree ring pattern has always been a point of interest for humanity. It’s exciting to witness an artist like Feinstein seize that fascination and interpret it through dedicated and intricate artwork, and the origin of her journey and her passion for the tree ring is just as interesting as her artwork."[ Full review - PDF]

  • For each exhibition at the Women And Their Work art organization,  a writer commissioned by the W&TW examines the work on exhibit and writes a critical essay. Valerie Cassel Oliver, the Senior Curator of the Contemporary Art Museum Houston wrote an essay entitled "Orna Feinstein: In Full Bloom" to accompany PAPELLIBRIUM.

  • Jeanne Claire Van Ryzin's review of  PAPELLIBRIUM entitled "Orna Feinstein uses 50,000 exhibit invites in her a faux flower field" was published on April 7, 2016 in the Austin American-Statesman.  "...With the gallery walls painted a matte battleship grey — and with the gallery devoid of natural light — the immediate whimsy of Feinstein’s fake flower field is nicely tempered. If anything, there’s a slightly — yet nicely — claustrophobic feel to the rather large installation that just enhances its artificiality". [ Full review - PDF]

  • Writer and art critic H.C. Arnold described  PAPELLIBRIUM as: "...Overall, it’s staggering. Beyond the sheer number of invitations she’s used, the amount of time taken to bend each one and stitch them together must have been immense. Then, there is their careful installation. She had to simultaneously cover the floor working from the back corners forward while at the same time making sure to diversify the various combinations of invitations in order to ensure an aesthetic variety. Larger oblong cards sit next to concentrically circled ones. Taller cards peek out over their neighbors. And their different colors dot the landscape making interesting and subtle patterns."

  • Todd Camplin published a detailed review of this show on his June 2015  Todd Camplin Weekly...  column at the ModernDallas.net online magazine.  He wrote: "....Orna Feinstein is reason enough to go out of your way, because her work engages the eye like no other artist. Well, I say that, but she comes out of a rich tradition of artists that have played with the eye. Op artists Yaacov Agam and Victor Vasarely have great influence on her work, but I think Feinstein takes this mode of visual experimentation and furthers the conversation by layering, cutting, sewing, and working on Plexiglas...".

  • A review of the"BREAKUP - Pixels, Particles, Fragments", a group exhibition at James Gallery in Pittsburgh by Kurt Shaw appeared on October 15, 2014 at the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.

  • Rich Lopez, of the Midland Reporter-Telegram  wrote: "...With her ultra-cool printmaking techniques, Feinstein's work in 'Now and Zen: 15 Years of Printmaking' is not only art on display, but it's also a magical trip where he works appear and disappear in front of your eyes". The article includes tips and special insight to Feinstein's work by Brian Lee Whisenhunt, the director of the Museum of the Southwest, and by the curator Wendy Earle.   [ Full review - PDF]

  • In the Jewish Herald-Voice "Orna Feinstein Retrospective tours Texas", Aaron Howard wrote: "...Approximately 30 Feinstein pieces will tour in her retrospective exhibition “Now and Zen – Fifteen Years of Contemporary Printmaking.” The exhibition includes earlier prints on paper from the Rings Series as well as newer prints on fabric and plexiglass, sculptures and installations. The exhibition will travel to several museums in Texas from fall 2014 until spring 2016."

  • In the October 2012 HoustonPress article "Translucent 3-D Magic at Anya Tish Gallery", Meredith Deliso wrote: "...Feinstein creates an almost "Magic Eye" effect with her Tree Dynamics series -- layered pieces of fabric, paper and monoprint on plexi that radiate orbs meant to represent the concentric circles of tree rings." [ Full review - PDF]

"...Every spare moment has gone toward cultivating a garden of recycled art-gallery invitations - about 10,000 of them, sewn into organic shapes and combined so they mimic flowers, leaves, trees and even a fountain."

"...The swirling forms of the installation, viewed from above, also mimic images you might see of plant cells under the microscope."  [ Full review - PDF]
