View Full Version : The Artists Magazine, Aug issue

I just perused my new issue of Artist's Magazine, for August. Their article on the 12 Hot Sites for Artists did not include WetCanvas...Shame on them! I did notice that MisterArt (#11) and ArtBiz.com (#4) had large ads in the magazine and several of the sites were for information such as #2 the US Copyright Office, #1 Artlex.com - and online dictionary of terms and definitions. None of the sites listed have the atmosphere for artists and online instruction that WetCanvas offers.
I am writing the editor...not to say that the other sites were poor choices....but to say that my top choice would have been WetCanvas!
You can find them online at www.artistsmagazine.com (http://www.artistsmagazine.com)
Thanks for the information Carly,
I will have a look,

Thanks from me too Carly......will check it out Carol
I noticed that too. Think Carly has the "write" idea! I'm going to let them know that they left out the best too.

To all readers who wrote to us about wetcanvas.com:
I'm sorry we can't respond individually, but there are just too many of you.
We apologize for not including WetCanvas among the "12 Hot Sites for
Artists" in The Artist's Life section of our August issue. But we're well
aware of the site, and it's already been included in a more comprehensive
feature article we're preparing for our October issue called "The Artist's
Guide to the Internet." We'll keep an eye on the site, and as we give
increasing coverage to how artists are using the Web we'll look out for
opportunities to highlight what's happening at WetCanvas. It's helpful for
us to know that the site has so many dedicated visitors, so thank you for
letting us know how you feel, and we welcome any future questions or
Tom Zeit, Associate Editor
The Artist's Magazine

I also received the email from the Asst. Editor. I thought it was great that they did acknowledge our letters....and from the sounds of it, loads of them!!!
I look forward to seeing the Oct. issue!
