Welcome to April. We have a great issue to present this month, but first, I want to introduce and welcome our newest team member, Rebecca Lynch! Rebecca is our new full-time Client Account Representative and Distribution Manager. She has over twenty years of experience as a media professional and has a true understanding of how to best serve our current and prospective advertisers across all media channels. Rebecca will also be working on our distribution strategy, and she is already making headway expanding the circulation of The Magazine in Albuquerque, where she resides. For questions about advertising or distribution, you can reach Rebecca at email@example.com or at 505-424-7641.
Next, I want to thank everyone who came out for the opening of 12 New Mexico Artists to Know Now at The’s new project space last month! The opening was a great success! If you haven’t yet seen the exhibition, it remains on view through April 27, with public hours Wednesday-Friday, 12-6 pm.
In this month’s feature content, I am pleased to present Jenn Shapland’s “Studio Visit” with renowned Galisteo-based artist Harmony Hammond. Shane Tolbert gives us a run-down of creative residencies throughout the Southwest that are sure to be of interest to artists, writers, and readers who want to know more about residencies available in this region. Jordan Eddy walks us through memories of Blackdom, a turn-of-the-century freedom colony of New Mexico, with Taos artist Nikesha Breeze and Santa Fe architect Gregory Waits. Lastly, I want to thank Joshua Baer for contributing his “One Bottle” column to The Magazine for many years. I know many people look forward to his thoughtful and creative take on wine writing every month. While this is the last issue in which we will publish the column as we develop and make room for new content, you can still follow “One Bottle” online at onebottle.com.
As always, we are all ears and would love to hear from you. You can send letters to the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you enjoy the new issue!
