whitman college's annual arts and literary magazine

the blue moon staff is busy planning the blue moon RELEASE PARTY which is scheduled for FRIDAY, APRIL 19th 2013 at Whitman College Coffee House. We’ll be celebrating the release of the 26th volume of the magazine with a special appearance by BEAT CONNECTION. Party starts at 7:30 (and we’ll have free cake, so don’t be late!)

The blue moon production staff just spent a week of their Spring Breaks putting together the layout of the actual magazine. Can’t wait to see what the final product is looking like!


Also, stay tuned for information about the blue moon RELEASE PARTY!

Following up on showings in Seattle and Los Angeles last year, Travis Louie will continue exploring the idea of his Victorian friends and their unusual pets with a solo show in Northampton, Massachusetts. The Secret Pet Society opens on May 2nd at William Baczek Fine Arts and will feature Travis’ distinctive and surreal way of painting his own interpretation of vintage photography. We love his awesome style!

“Molting” from Sterling Hundley’s Blue Collar/White Collar monograph by Adhouse Books.
“Illustration is Blue Collar – both pervasive and accessible. It is art that must survive in spite of commerce and function. There is a desperation to the thing; illustration that doesn’t work doesn’t eat. Given limitations in time to communicate and the space in which to do it, illustration must answer a question.
Fine Art is White Collar – reclusive with airs of mystery and sophistication. It is pursued. Given the abundance of space in which it is viewed and the time which it is afforded, fine art has the luxury of asking a question.”
