Studio Visit Magazine
Studio Visit magazine is a new juried magazine produced by The Open Studios Press which publishes the well known New American Paintings periodical. Since this was their premier issue, it took longer than anticipated to be released, but it is finally in print and offers visual artists great exposure as it will be sent to curators and gallerists throughout the country as well as a growing subscriber base of collectors and art enthusiasts. Here is an excerpt from the foreword...
"...more than 1000 artists submitted work for our first edition of Studio Visit. Entries came from around the globe and in a variety of media. Our juror, Michael Lash, the former Director of Public Arts for the City of Chicago, spent the better part of a week selecting the featured artists. In the end, there were enough artists worthy of inclusion to warrant the simultaneous publication of two magazines instead of one "oversized" book. Thus, volumes one and two of Studio Visit represent the results of our first competition ever."
In addition to the current issue, I just found out that my work has been selected for the next issue in Fall, 2008 juried by Carl Belz, Director Emeritus, The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University.
