Sculptural Pursuit magazine ceasing production

This is a sad note that I received in my email today. I checked it out on their facebook page for validity. Looks like it is true.....

January 16, 2010

It is with deep regret that we have ceased publishing Sculptural Pursuit magazine and SP ONLINE. This was not an easy decision, but we have exhausted our financial ability to continue publishing in the current economy. We have suspended publication of Creative Wisdom and On the Lookout until further notice.
We struggled to reverse the reduction of our advertising base over the past year, increased our outreach to bring in more subscribers, and explored other income sources. Our efforts could not overcome the challenge of rising expenses and the high cost to print and distribute each issue. Advertising sales plummeted between the October 2009 and January 2010 issues. Efforts to find a buyer or an investor were unsuccessful. I'm grateful to all of our advertisers and subscribers who supported and encouraged the efforts and hard work of my talented team over the past eight years. It was an honor to share the creative efforts and inspirations of many fine sculptors, as well as the writers, photographers, poets, painters, and teachers who contributed to our twenty-eight quarterly issues.
At this time, our Sculptural Pursuit website will continue with access to our online store for purchase of back issues, books, and gift items, along with access to archived issues of Creative Wisdom - our online ezine.Over the next six months, I will explore the possibility of continuing the online publications - Creative Wisdom and On The Lookout.

That's a shame. They did a nice job with it, and there are so few magazines that feature sculptures. I hope they can get it going again in the future.
