Just a little preview to get you excited! The official release date is this Saturday, March 31st, but you can buy a copy right now. Or get a subscription for the whole year right away. If you are familiar with the magazine already, the one big change you’ll notice is that we’ve added artist interviews, and we’re pretty excited about it!

Issue Five Press Release
We’re releasing our fifth issue next weekend, and here are the formal details:
Milwaukee based artists and curators Cassandra Smith and Jessica Steeber are pleased to announce the fifth issue of Fine Line Magazine, titled High Expectations. The issue features artwork by 8 artists from 3 states and 5 countries – some have been exhibited and published widely, and some are just finishing their studies.
ABOUT THE PARTY
Saturday, March 31st
8:00 pm - 1:00 am
Live Artist Studios - 228 S. 1st Street, #302, Milwaukee
An art exhibition will accompany the release party, featuring art work by Milwaukee artists Andrea Avery, Jessica Kaminski, Eddie Villanueva and Kristopher Pollard. Gal Friday Films will also be present for a special screening of one of their fabulous productions at 9:00 pm. Musician Andy Menchal will be showing off his DJ skills after the screening until the party wraps up. Copies of Issue Five will be available for $10.
ABOUT THE ISSUE
Fine Line is now twice the length as previous issues and features three sections, ‘The Gallery’ (art, quotes and selected text as seen in previous issues), ‘The Installation’ (art generated for the magazine addressing the printed, bound page), and ‘The Stories’ (interviews and biographies with the artists).
For this issue, Fine Line is excited to be working with 826 Valencia, a non-profit youth writing center in San Francisco co-founded by author Dave Eggers. Selections of children’s writing will accompany the artwork, speaking to the theme of expectations in a unique way.
Issue Five participating artists:
Samantha Casolari, who we are working with in our upcoming issue, is both a professional photographer and fine artists. Sometimes she gets to do awesome things like photograph NY Fashion week for the New York Times Style Magazine.
This studio visit with Mary Iverson makes us even more thrilled to be featuring her work in our upcoming issue, due out in March (via Studio Visit with Mary Iverson - The Shooting Gallery)
