After a hiatus of 4 years, the magazine that was started by Ed & Jeannie McComack in 1998 will be back online and in print.
Gallery & Studio is now a non-profit organization chaired by Jeannie McCormack and Ed McCormack as the Editor-in-chief.
The mission of the new Gallery & Studio Arts Journal is to be a portal to the wider world of the arts, for a broad audience. Covering established artists and venues as well as giving recognition to unknown and emerging artists, as well as artists who are no longer with us, with different settings, such as open studios, pop-up shows, online platforms, to give a more balanced view. The broadest definition of the arts will also include poetry and literature, theater, dance, music as well as the visual and healing arts. The journal will include reviews, essays, critiques, competitions, interviews, schedule of events and information pertinent to art aficionados, collectors, artists, academia, gallerists, press and other individuals associated with and interested in the arts.
We are raising money to help re-launch the magazine. The aim is to provide coverage for over 1000 artists, artistic companies, organizations and events in the coming year with independent journalism. Please consider helping us support the arts and the artists who create them.
"As a professional artist who is represented in the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art and whose work is included in museum, corporate and private collections internationally, I am eternally grateful to Ed and Jeanne McCormack of Gallery&Studio. I have been a member of an artist-run gallery for the past twenty years where I have mounted a new solo exhibition every two years. Coverage in Gallery&Studio has been invaluable and has contributed much to my success. In mentoring young artists, I have always cited the importance of this magazine. I am thrilled to see this valuable publication once again poised to re-take center stage!" Marilyn Henrion
