Our December issue is here!

It's that time! Women in Art 278 is proud to announce the release of our December issue. And, we are even happier to announce the winner of our cover page art contest: Ilisa Millermoon! As many of you are aware, our December issue is our first "themed" cover - this month pays tribute to Human Rights, which is internationally recognized on December 10th. Ilisa Millermoon's art is a beautiful representation of a person breaking away from imprisonment and finding their freedom.

The mission of our magazine is to showcase talented female artists from across the globe but we would be remiss if we didn't also take the opportunity to talk about (or use art in lieu of our words) incredibly important social issues that afflict every country around our globe. As female artists, we often find inspiration for our art from our daily lives, by society, by nature and ... well, it seemed fitting to incorporate some of these global issues into our magazine. 

As always, we offer our magazine two ways. (1) as a free e-magazine and (2) as a printed edition that is shipped directly to your home or office. Below are both links to the December issue. 

To purchase a printed edition:

December 2013: An Inspirational Collection

In only a few days we will unveil our December issue - and, let me tell you, it is BEAUTIFUL! As a little teaser, here are a few of the artists the December issue features ...

Our artists are incredibly diverse and it's through diversity that we are able to offer all our readers something that compliments their artistic tastes perfectly. It is so difficult to describe anything as universally beautiful (I'm biased to our artists, of course) but completely understand that what I define as beautiful might not be another person's definition. So, by offering many artists and many different genres, we are confident you will fall in love with (at least) one of them.

               Until December 1st ...

                                      Standby for the unveiling!

Shopping Tips for the Holiday Season

I know many societies tell us that we "need" name brand items or should shop discount at the large chain stores such as Walmart but what does that money do? Does it help out the cashiers? Does it help the people manufacturing those goods in countries hidden from our purview? Often times it simply makes the owners and shareholders rich but doesn't affect the many wonderful employees who keep those businesses operating.

How about this holiday season you shop from local and independent artists. Money paid toward small businesses makes a huge difference. It will help the artist or small business owner buy gifts for their families, pay bills, grow their businesses and hopefully expand them enough that they hire additional workers! Yes, oh, yes, shopping directly from the artists and small businesses matter greatly!

Etsy is a wonderful platform to purchase handmade goods from independent artists. In fact, many of the artists featured in Women in Art 278 magazine have an online store so you can shop online, order from them directly (perhaps even get a customized, original piece of art!) and help their business grow!

I know the temptation of insanely low prices are everywhere but even if you buy a few gifts from independent artists this holiday season, you'll truly make a difference for them.

     Warm Regards,

November 2013's Printed Edition

Our November issue's cover page artist, Silvia Cataudella, opens our issue with an interview (in Italian and English) then leads you on an artistic journey around the globe from painters to photographers and jewelry designers to mesh-wire designers. 

Many of these women are world travelers - born in one country and finding home in another. So, you will see that some are nestled under countries where they currently reside but their origins often inspired their love of art and it's through art that they carry their culture(s). 

Art has a way of overcoming physical and emotional barriers ... beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and the art we connect with can easily come from someone whose language we don't share or history we don't share but connect with them nonetheless. 

This connection we find through art is beautiful - as are the creators of art featured on our pages. 

To purchase a printed edition visit

Italian Artist Silvia Cataudella

Romanian-born Artist Daniela Cecille Fodor

German-born painter Birgit Kalkofen 

Spanish Artist Concha De Castro

Bulgarian Artist Raitza Mimitrova

Ghana-based artist Manisha Vedpathak

American Artist Lindsay Satchell 

South African-born Painter Soraya Nulliah

Human Rights Matter. Expression through Art.

The upcoming issue (December 2013) has an exciting cover page art contest: Human Rights. It was selected as the first cover page contest because it is a universal issue that afflicts so many countries around our globe. Unfortunately, so many of us are affected by laws that don't truly support us as individuals because of our religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference, age, etc.

If you are a female artist and have artwork that depicts Human Rights (open to abstract interpretation) please submit your art for the cover. We outlined some of the guidelines for cover page submissions here. Check it out!

Quote by Dr. Paul Farmer

You may submit artwork for the cover page contest up until 25 November. If you have any questions about the magazine or the process, contact us using the contact form on the right column). Thanks!!

Art Competition Winner Announced!!!

Women in Art 278 is pleased to announce the winner of
"Honoring Our Mothers" art competition: Priscilla Burgers

 Please enjoy the stunning photography as well as a write up by
Priscilla Burgers of Cottonwood, Arizona, USA.

About the Artist and "Suppertime" 
For years, I was a "happy snappy" photographer, Upon retiring from high school counseling and teaching ten years ago, I purchased my first digital camera and started to take photography more seriously. I took several courses on using a dSLR camera, photo processing using Adobe Elements and Photoshop, digital painting, creative Photoshop techniques, and matting and framing, I enjoy keeping up with new photography techniques and improving my photography and photo processing skills. My initial photography interest and focus was landscape photography. I live near the beautiful red rock area of Sedona, Arizona, a photographer's paradise. Although Arizona has extensive variety and beauty in its landscape subjects, my real landscape interest is the majestic mountains of the West. My husband and I take frequent trips, always planned around photography locations. My interest in photography genres has gradually expanded to include wildlife; ghost towns and other relics; rodeos, ranches, and cowboys; barns, churches, and other subjects that may capture my interest. I especially enjoy creatively processing photographs with textures, composites, and digital painting.

I attended the 2013 St. Augustine Birding and Photo Fest, in St. Augustine, Florida last April when the birds were in full breeding plumage. The highlight of the five-day event was photographing the native bird rookery at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. The natural alligator swamp area of the park attracts hundreds of pairs of herons, egrets, ibis, spoonbills and wood storks that nest literally feet away from the boardwalk. With hundreds of alligators swimming beneath the oak branches, the birds know their young are safe from tree-climbing predators. The wooden walkway allows for incredibly intimate views of the magnificent birds on their nests. When I was at the rookery, there were numerous birds flying around, bringing nest materials to their mates to add to their nests. Although there were many birds feeding their young in nests, I focused on this family of great egrets because the dark background set off the white birds so nicely. Most other nests had bright skylight behind them that was very distracting. I have many, many photographs of this mother feeding her young. She would periodically leave the nest for more food for the chicks, always quickly returning with more food to feed their hungry appetites. This image is my favorite because it shows the mother's beak placing the morsels in the chick's wide open mouth. The other chicks, although not as aggressive, anxiously await their turns with open mouths. This devoted mother did not neglect the needs of any of her chicks. This motherly devotion can be seen in all animals, including humans.

Congratulations, Priscilla!!
