Just sent in my submission for this.
Direct Art was founded in 1996 and has emerged in the last decade as a leading alternative fine art magazine. Direct Art’s mission is to display the work of the finest, most interesting and talented artists from around the globe. Each issue is packed with new artists. Selected annually from an international talent search, the work of these artists makes Direct Art unique and unlike any other art magazine. Because if its uniqueness, Direct Art appeals to a wide audience. Artists, collectors, gallery owners and ordinary folks who love pictures are all lured to the colorful creativity of Direct Art.
Direct Art is published annually by SlowArt Productions and is released in the fall of each year. It is distributed by COMAG Marketing Group, the same distributors of Art News and Art in America, to fine book and magazine stores across America, including Barnes and Noble and Borders Books and Music. Additional copies are distributed to New York City galleries, museums and specialty book stores.
