SEATTLE – The brand new physical art publication PublicDisplay.Art aims to put art in Seattle’s hands. The Quarterly Journal is a way to reignite interest in the arts and local artists like the cover artist, Tariqa Waters of Martyr Sauce, and featured artists Anna Mia Davidson, Anouk Rawkson, Carolyn Hitt, Mari Shibuya, Monyee Chau, Moses Sun, Priyanka Parmanand, Romson Busstillio and Soo Hong.

“This is what Seattle has been missing for a while, it’s very important to have this platform to show their work,” said artist Anouk Rawkson.

The free post has been part of One Reel’s new arts-focused nonprofit programming since she stepped down as producer of Bumbershoot earlier this year. It’s also made possible, in part, through funding from the City of Seattle’s Arts and Culture Office.

PublicDisplay.Art enables One Reel to continue to serve its mission by reaching large audiences with a simple and accessible way to experience the work of well-established and up-and-coming local artists.

“It’s a chance for us to connect people to the arts,” says Marty Griswold, executive director of One Reel. “As amazing as the Internet is, it doesn’t allow this chance encounter.”

“It’s not a fancy book publication, it gets more personal, it goes more in-depth,” artist Soo Hong said.

Over 15,000 issues of this first-ever published art exhibit have been distributed to neighborhood galleries, cafes and retailers in Seattle. Find where you can get a copy here.

Despite the project’s limited budget, all artists were paid. However, the possibility of expanding their local clientele far exceeded the financial support received.

“Artists need to nurture and own their space, to make sure their stories are told,” said artist Tariqa Waters.

PublicDisplay.Art and its accompanying website (from which it takes its name) provide public access to the gallery’s art, which is essential not only to the livelihoods of thousands of local artists, but to the preservation of society’s continued appreciation for the arts and culture.
