Sackville Arts Magazine Announced- Oct. 2010
An inaugural meeting for a Sackville Arts magazine, called The SAM, was held last night in the artist-run Struts Gallery. The editors are looking for submissions announcing upcoming events, reviewing art shows and galleries, or profiling local artists. The deadline for submission is October 20th for a November printing.
“There is a lot going on in the local art scene and not enough being written about it”, says Claire Gallant, one of the co-editors and a Fine Arts student at Mount Allison. Gallant says that the magazine and website will provide a forum for discussion about contemporary art as well as create a physical record of the artistic happenings in the Sackville area.
Erin Canning, co-editor, START gallery organizer and art history student at Mount Allison says that they hope that the magazine will promote local artists and place their work within the bigger picture of contemporary Canadian art.
