Reading about art

January 2013 Issue of “Art in America” & my mocha

In my January newsletter I suggested that you start keeping up with the art scene, whether it’s close to home or around the globe.  This is a photo of the current print issue of “Art in America” which I now subscribe to.  Check out page 31 of this issue with an article by our daughter, Kayla Guthrie!  Kayla has always been a skilled writer so we are very excited that she is being published in this magazine.  I also subscribe to their online magazine, a glimpse into what’s happening each week in the contemporary art world.  Kayla has done several interviews with well-known artists for the online version as well.

If you’ve never heard of this magazine, here is a description from Wickipedia; “Art in America is an illustrated monthly, international magazine concentrating on the contemporary art world, including profiles of artists and genres, updates about art movements, show reviews and event schedules. It is designed for collectors, artists, dealers, art professionals and other consumers who are interested in all aspects of the artworld. The magazine includes extensive coverage and criticism of sculpture, painting and photography.”

For interest sake, I am currently taking an art history course at the Vancouver Island School of Art, “Minimalism to End of Century” (1965 – 2000) with instructor Danielle Hogan.  My husband and I visit New York every year so it’s great to learn about many of the works that we have seen or will see at the museums and galleries there.
