Armenian Arts Magazine will be published on a monthly basis beginning in January 2017, announced Stepan Partamian of Knowledge Truck, Inc., the nonprofit organization that publishes the magazine.
With feature stories, interviews, artist profiles, and lifestyle articles, Armenian Arts celebrates the cultural and artistic diversity of Los Angeles.
“We showcase artists and artistic events that have significance to not just the Armenian community, but the dazzling mosaic of communities throughout Los Angeles and beyond,” Partamian said. “I think we Armenians are blessed to be living in a dynamic, globally important metropolis such as Los Angeles, where there’s so much synergy and cross-pollination in the spheres of art and culture. The Armenian art scene cannot thrive in a cocoon, cut off from the larger cultural space of which it is, and should be, an integral part. Armenian Arts is dedicated to exploring and embracing the wonderful, often surprising intersection points where Armenia art meets world art.”
The cover story of the January 2017 issue of Armenian Arts is about an extraordinary exhibition, titled “Los Angeles – Our Eyes,” held at the Armenian Arts Gallery in Glendale this month. The show featured the works of five Los Angeles photographers, including Pulitzer Prize recipient and Leica Hall of Famer Nick Ut, Stephen Coleman, Patti Ballaz, Gary Brainard, and Rouzanna Berberian. All five photographers were on hand at the opening night of the show, which was attended by hundreds of patrons.
