New Magazine To Focus On The Local Art Scene
What could be more perfect to spread the news about local artists at the Buffalo Indie Market than a literary magazine that features works from local artists? NOMAD is a new magazine set to debut in January 2009 that will feature writers, poets, photographers, artists, and designers from the area. Erica Eichelkraut, a freelance photographer, created NOMAD and is bringing it to the public. Since Eichelkraut is a part of the Buffalo Indie Market, it wasn’t long before a collaboration was brewing.
Eichelkraut and the Buffalo Indie Market are teaming up to make a reversible publication. One side will feature NOMAD and the various artists of Buffalo while the other side will be a 2009 calendar/artist directory of the 2009 market season for the Buffalo Indie Market. 20,000 copies of this free magazine will be published and placed all around Buffalo where they hope to have the most impact, exposing both the artists of NOMAD and the artists of the Buffalo Indie Market.
NOMAD is still accepting submissions, so if you want to be featured, you better hurry before time runs out. NOMAD is also running a website where additional work will be featured, adding an interactive component to the print version of their magazine. They are also currently looking for advertisers and you can find out more about that at their website. The Buffalo Indie Market features 20 to 30 local artists at their monthly gatherings on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the Pearl Street Grill and Brewery every second Sunday of the month from 12 until 5 PM.
