When You Thirst for New Art: ArtQuench

Editor and Photographer Stacia Gates, born and raised in Los Angeles, has created an art magazine for the 21st Century in ArtQuench (AQM).

What makes AQM different is that this is not a magazine compiled by critics to dictate their own version of aesthetics, but to serve as a forum to expose new and overlooked artists to a broad base of art-lovers who might not otherwise get to see their work.

As befits her background as a photographer, Stacia works from a broad definition of art, so be prepared for an eclectic selection in each issue that will at turns intrigue, challenge, or otherwise move you, but do not expect to be bored. The featured artist is Issue One, for example, was Nicola White, a woman who creates works out of the flotsam and jetsam that pile up along beaches.
