New Observations magazine is an innovative visual arts forum for exploration of the topics that interest you. It offers an opportunity to communicate your ideas to artists, writers, and other culturally engaged readers.

New Observations, is the non-profit art journal
that lets the artists speak for themselves.

New Observation's mandate is to address the visual arts from the inside out. For 15 years we have published extraordinary explorations, through language and visual arts, of topics that artists choose. Each issue is coordinated by a guest editor who has proposed a topic and invited others to illuminate or add their unique perspective on that topic.

Potential guest editors should submit a clear summary of the topic they wish to explore, a list of possible contributors and samples of visual images.

Selection of proposals takes place at meetings of the staff and Board of Editorial Consultants.

Please address proposals to: New Observations
