July 9, 2014 Abigail Clark of the BRIC Brooklyn Contemporary Art Center included my work in her curated short list of six Brooklyn artists who study and portray urban industrial landscape. Clark writes: “From afar, Margaret Noel’s mixed media collages could be abstract works, but a closer look reveals a layered process that begins with an observational drawing of an industrial landscape. Often architectural in their nature, Noel intends for her works to be abstract enough to remind viewers of forgotten places in their memory. The materials and processes the artist uses bring a unique effect to these portrayals of urban landscape, focusing our attention to the blocks of color that compose these scenes.”

June 27, 2014 Nice shout out from the New Criterion for the opening tonight of the Life on Mars invitational summer exhibition. Eight Openings You Should Go to Instead of Koons

April 4, 2014 The Ulrich Museum of Art in Wichita has installed one of my collages in a glass box on the side of the museum as a site-specific interactive public art piece while the museum’s Joan Miró mural is being cleaned. The piece can be viewed through a telescopic viewfinder from across the street.

April, 2014 I was one of a small number of PA state faculty to receive funding for my research this year through a Pennsylvania State (PASSHE) Professional Development Grant. The grant will partially fund a sabbatical research trip to Butte, Montana to complete plein air copperpoint drawings of landscapes shaped by copper mining.
