Front cover of Inquiring Mind
Lots of stuff happening!
I just received my copies of the "American Art Collector", which I wasn't expecting until the end of November. I am excited to be a part of it--the book has turned out very nicely. This was a juried competition, and the book is published by Alcove Books in Berkeley, CA. It includes over 300 artists from all over the US, working in 2D and 3D formats. There is quite a range of styles and overall the work is of very high quality. These are distributed to art galleries nationwide, and are also available for sale at bookstores. And there are 3 of us featured in the American Art Collector who are part of Point Reyes Thanksgiving Open Studios! Myself, photographer Philip Loring Greene and ceramicist Carolyn Means.
The latest issue of Inquiring Mind arrived about a week ago. Inquiring Mind has been using my artwork for several years now & I have a large image of the "Mountain Lions" painting in this issue. IM is published in black and white only, but the I love the large format and each issue is really beautiful and the writing is superb. Subscriptions to Inquiring Mind are by donation and it is published twice yearly. It is produced for and supported by the vipassana community and is a non profit venture.
I will have both of these publications displayed at my Thanksgiving Open Studios for your perusal--& copies of the Inquiring Mind to give away to those who are interested. And just so you don't forget, here is the scoop on Open Studios:
