ABOUT PA

We are a multi-interactive publication focusing on art; Figurative, Representational, Portraits, and Poetry. Published from 8 to 12 times a year including end of the year issues (Drawing and Painting). We interview art collectors, poets, artists, gallery owners and art dealers to keep our readers in the know. More importantly we collaborate with galleries and curate group exhibitions to bring further awareness to our community of artists and poets.

Art published has been acquired by various private and public collections including The Tullman Collection in Chicago, IL, been awarded art prizes, have won BP Portrait AwardsMEAMThe Outwin Portrait Exhibition, and others.

We publish what we love and not what we are paid to publish. We do not advertise. We do not have institutions dictating to us. We feel quality is worth more than quantity.

On the poetry side we submit to Best American Poetry and also nominate to the Pushcart Prize.  Whenever possible we submit to other anthologies which we may qualify for.

Please note that we do not offer complimentary contributor copies. All the issues are available to view online, download, or buy as a print-on-demand. 

Our internal policy regarding group shows is that if it is not in the publication, it is not in the show meaning that the publication is the reason for the show. 

We hope to see your work featured soon.
