My wife Debbie and I have begun work on the creation of an art magazine entitled “The Oneiric Realist.” The magazine will showcase art and literature by today’s artists and writers who have dedicated their lives to the continuation of the surrealist tradition. Artists from the International Surrealism Now exhibitions will be featured in each issue. A section of the magazine will provide exhibition dates to interesting exhibits around the world. I will be featuring some of my surreal creations and experiments in issues. Artwork from the artists in groups I created on Facebook and the Surrealism groups I’m a member of will be the well I draw from when putting an issue together.
I will also be asking artists who I’ve come to know on Facebook to submit work for the magazine. I also intend to create a group or page for the magazine which will also serve to find other artists who wish to show their work in the magazine. Debbie will be looking at literary submissions and editing the publication.
If you’re interested in submitting art, poetry, articles, or stories, please send your submission to email@example.com.
We’re excited to be working on this together. The ideas are flowing faster than we can write them down. We will be working to make the magazine itself a work of art, and the voice of Surrealism in our time.
UPDATE: The Oneiric Realist group is now on Facebook.
“The Oneiric Realist” is an art magazine project started by Steve and Debbie Smith. The purpose of the magazine is:
1. To publish artwork and literature by artists influenced by the Dada and Surrealist movements.
2. To publish work that expresses the freedom of the imagination.
3. To publish artwork that express the fantastic and the irrational.
This group will be a meeting place for all those involved in the magazine project and all those that wish to become involved. This group will provide updates on the project, serve as an open forum for ideas, and submissions for the magazine.
Just imagine this group as a tall office building and the members of this group are the staff of The Oneiric Realist working together to create the magazine.
We welcome your ideas and suggestions to make this an amazing magazine.
For those that spend time designing and creating art with computer software such as Photoshop. We are interested in anything you can create that will help the design of the magazine. Don’t hesitate to send in a design idea or just something you created with only the magazine in mind.
I’d like to note that we are also seeking artists that create comic style work of a surreal and irrational nature.
Artists and Authors,
Please submit your work on the wall of the group or contact us directly by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
