If you act fast, you can nab a copy of the the 2011 West Issue of New American Paintings, full of work by Phoenix artists. 

The bi-monthly national magazine is a juried exhibition-in-print. Each edition features the work of 40 painters, selected from thousands of applications and recommendations by a recognized curator. 

No. 96 was juried by Cassandra Coblentz, Curator, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) and features work by local painter Colin Chillag on the cover. 

Coblentz writes in the introduction, "the artists represented in these pages demonstrate the vitality of artistic practice in this region of the country. Boldly building upon the richness of art history, their demonstrations of reinvention and innovation are in step with the mythos of the landscape itself, which continues to serve as an important backdrop for exploring the most pressing issues and concerns we all face in the West."
