The Artist's Magazine 25th Anniversary

Letter from the Editor

From its inception in 1984, The Artist’s Magazine has showcased extraordinary art while offering instruction in craft, as well as advice on the business of art. Directed to both aspiring and professional artists, The Artist’s Magazine, under its founding editor/publisher, Richard Rosenthal, and subsequent editors Michael Ward, Mary Magnus, Sandra Carpenter and Tom Zeit, fostered an impassioned community that today is more than 160,000 strong.

We’ll celebrate our 25th Anniversary all year long. Check back regularly for new articles, selections from the archive and remembrances from former staffers. Thank you for sharing our celebration with us.
