IRAAA

In honor of African American History month, we’re featuring the International Review of African American Art (IRAAA) as the journal of the month for February. IRAAA is the only periodical spanning the history of African American art from early and modern to contemporary. The journal is published by Hampton University Museum on a quarterly basis. Founded in 1868, the Museum is the oldest African American museum in the United States featuring collections with over 9,000 objects including African American fine arts, traditional African, Native American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Island, and Asian art.

Volume 24, no. 3b is a special issue of the journal published in conjunction with the Dianne Whitfield-Locke and Carnell Locke Collection: Building on Tradition exhibition at the Hampton University Museum. The issue acts like an exhibition catalog and features essays and full-color reproductions. Stop by the library to view this beautiful journal, and browse the back issues on display!

Journal of the Month: Ceramics Now

Ceramics Now Magazine The Journal of the Month for May 2013 is new to the collection: Ceramics Now. Ceramics Now began as an online platform with the goal of making contemporary ceramics a more visible art field and to support innovative ideas by bringing together artists from different communities. The magazine focuses on personal approaches with interviews, reviews and artists profiles of new and world-renowned ceramic artists. Online you will find additional information on contemporary ceramic art exhibitions and jobs and residencies.

Issue Two introduces the work of over 35 international artists, beginning with Ken Eastman, Kimberly Cook, Patricia Sannit, Marianne McGrath, Annie Woodford, Suzanne Stumpf and Ruth Power, and continuing with a special feature on Romanian ceramic artists, and a preview feature for Copenhagen Ceramics gallery. The issue also inaugurates the magazine’s new review category.
