Quincy, MA (PRWEB) March 22, 2013
The March-April Issue of artscope marks the magazine’s 7th anniversary, featuring “13 for 2013” -- artists who are making unique contributions in a variety of genres. A new format enables wider coverage of the New England art scene. The issue also includes a heartfelt tribute to artists and educators who have come together to begin the healing process after the Newtown, Ct. tragedy.
According to Kaveh Mojtabai, artscope Magazine Publisher, “Not only is this our best issue ever, it is also our biggest, with more advertising than ever before. In order to enhance our coverage of New England beyond Boston and Cambridge, we’ve re-designed the print format, which happily also provides more room for full-color photography illustrating the articles.”
“Another milestone is reached with this issue, as we add four new writers: Kristin Nord, covering Connecticut; Marcia Santore, New Hampshire; Jamie Thompson, Maine; and recent New York University graduate Lindsey Davis expanding online coverage though our zine on artscopemagazine.com,” he said.
Brian Goslow, Managing Editor, added, “Late season blizzards here notwithstanding, this issue covers major shows such as the Copley Society’s Winter Members’ Show, judged by our beloved publisher and fearless leader, Kaveh Mojtabai. And we are especially proud of the segment called “13 for 2013,” showcasing artists representing a variety of genres and beginning to gain recognition of their talents.”
“After seven years,” Mr. Goslow commented, “we feel we’ve found our true niche: championing artists who are at the breakthrough points of their careers. We’ve been the first to mention them in print after their work grabs attention at a group show. For others, artscope is the first recognition of a solo exhibition. The same goes for galleries when we capture the exciting point when an entrepreneur’s dream becomes a true avenue for a region’s arts community to showcase their work.”
