Above: The cover of the Winter2010/11 Canadian Art
For this December/January's magazine highlight I have chosen Canadian Art.
This may seem like an obvious choice but it is truly an amazing source of information, insight and dialogue on art in a Canadian context. Canadian Art is a quarterly publication, published by The Canadian Art Foundation. The Foundation is a charitable organization that fosters and supports the visual arts in Canada. The foundation celebrates artists and their creativity with a nationwide educational program of events, lectures, competitions, publications and other initiatives.

Canadian Art is my go-to magazine or site if I’m looking for information on recent or upcoming shows in Canada. The site has even more information then the magazine, such as unique feature articles not found in the print publication, an elaborated gallery directory with images and reviews of current shows at each location. Plus a major bonus - the whole site has an easy to navigate layout.
Check it out for yourselves: http://www.canadianart.ca/
Within the magazine there is an extensive list of exhibitions and reviews. This publication doesn't shy away from controversial topics or imagery –it covers it all, the good, bad, ugly and amazing.
This is a phenomenal magazine for those wishing to feel connected and knowledgeable about what is happening in the Arts in Canada, but also its light enough to entertain those with general interest in art.
That’s all for now, next time I think I’ll tackle Applied Arts Magazine, which like Canadian Art has a great online component as well. If your interested in getting the jump on my next post here is a link the Applied Art: http://appliedartsmag.com/
Have a great holiday season and a Happy New Year! If youre headed out of the region via Highway63 please drive safe, and if your sticking close to home well...drive safe then too :)
