Overview

Above: New Twist by Dahrl Thomson

The annual American Artwork presents a juried collection of contemporary media. Now in its 20th year, 2,000 copies will be printed in Hong Kong and mailed to design firms, art consultants and galleries. Trim size is 8.5"H x 6"W. Printed on 128# Japanese Gloss art stock, smythe sewn binding.

Juried by California College of the Arts Painting Professor Emeritus Howard Eige and former Oakland craft gallery owner Jan Christensen-Heller. Our publications were called "stunning" by the San Francisco Chronicle and "a work of art in themselves" by the Sacramento Bee. Working out of the Sawtooth Artist Complex since 2000, we've exhibited over 3,500 artists with great feedback.

Our print edition was originally titled American Art Collector, and renamed American Artwork in 2018. Trim size was a 8.5"H x 6"W symthe-sewn book-format from 2004 to 2018, and a 10.5"H x 8"W perfect-bound magazine-format from 2019 to 2021. In 2023 edition, we reverted to the original book format by popular demand.
