Re: ‘Mass Artistic Exodus?’ Julie Bevan and Anthea Black Aug. 6-Aug. 12 2009.

Great article but I’m hoping to correct one important fact. The article states "Currently no national arts magazines are published here at home." What about filling Station a non-profit volunteer-run magazine published here in Calgary with national distribution we began in 1994 as a literary magazine.

Since 2006 we have become a literary and arts magazine publishing fine art in our pages. (One of our fine arts editors was Travis Murphy one of those interviewed for your article). Our current fine arts editor is Debble.lee Miszaniec an ACAD graduate and a practicing Calgary artist.

Soon our new website will allow us to show our artists’ work in full colour beginning with the next issue. Please don’t forget about us – we’re here for you Calgary! We’re always accepting submissions and looking for volunteers.
