Save The Date – May 31st – ArtZINE:Mt.Sterling, KY

save the date- May’s ArtZINE will be May31st in Mt. Sterling, Ky at the Montgomery County Public Library

The theme for May’s ArtZINE is: NEVER AGAIN

The idea for the ArtZine project is for artists (particularly those who live in small towns) to get to know each other by visiting each other’s communities, and making a self published magazine together. We are particularly excited to have the chance to visit Mt. Sterling, because it is a small town with an already thriving art and zine culture. The Gateway Regional Arts Center, located in Mt. Sterling, publishes the art/literary zine: uncommon Grackle.

To participate in ArtZINE, create your entry to the ‘zine before the meet up:
Take a sheet of letter sized paper, and fold it in half. That is the size of our zine. You can put whatever you want inside. it can be a drawing, poem, short story, photograph, collage, crossword puzzle, anything– We’ll have computers and a scanner available to put it in the layout.

You can look at the artZINE’s photo albums to see examples of previous entries.

On the day of the event, we will meet each other in person at the library, and work together to create the ‘zine covers, print and assemble the ‘zine.

The activity is free and open to the public, all skill levels and types of art are welcome to join us.
all participants get their own copy.
Bring a lunch

April ArtZine: Rabbit Hash, KY – preview

We just completed our 8th ArtZine. Since September, we have visited a different small town to make a magazine about a different theme. Monday, April 23rd, we met in the Rabbit Hash Historical District to create work around the theme: I remember when…

There was an overwhelming turnout (over 26 participants!) From different parts of Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. It’ll take a few days until we publish the online edition, but here is a short (less than 2 minute) video preview. It features some of the different hand painted covers, as well as this month’s entries.

people will never forget how you made them feel

I’m part of a project, called artZine. Each month, visiting artists collaborate with the community of a different small town to create a self published magazine. each month, there is a theme. April’s artZine will be on the 23rd, and our theme is “I remember when…”

this activity is free and open to the public. April 23rd, at the barn in Rabbit Hash, KY. There is still time to draw, paint, write, print, or create an entry however you are inspired. We’ll meet from 10-4pm.

for my entry, I chose to make a linocut of Maya Angelou’s famous quote because it illustrates the abstraction of memory, and the importance of kindness. Rabbit Hash, KY.
