ARTSPEAK RADIO presents, Editors Adam Finkelston, James Meara, and Author, Patrick Dobson November 26, 2014 | 6:00 pm
On Artspeak Radio

In the first half of ARTSPEAK RADIO, editors, Adam Finkleston and James Meara joins us in the studio to discuss The Hand Magazine, a quarterly publication for artists working in photography, digital, and print media. Our goal is to provide artists an outlet to publish their work and reach a wider audience.

The Hand Magazine is dedicated to being the world’s premier forum for innovative and experimental uses of reproduction-based media. We are interested in how artists include their own hand in the art object while utilizing mechanical or reproduction-based techniques. We are interested in publishing any and all forms of photography and printmaking; whether the work is strictly a photograph or print, or whether the work incorporates these processes in a sculptural, multi-media or collage format. www.thehandmagazine.wordpress.com

In the second half of our program, writer, author, Patrick Dobson joins us to discuss his book, Seldom Seen; A Journey Into the Great Plains. Patrick is a freelance writer, former journalist, and working member of Ironworkers Local Union no. 10 in Kansas City, Missouri. He is pursuing his doctorate in U.S. Environmental History and American literature at the University of Missouri–Kansas City.
Seldom Seen: A Journey into the Great Plains, chronicles a walking trip from Kansas City to Helena, MT. The story, while tracking my search for inner peace, is about the people and places of the Great Plains and how they lead me to lasting and enduring fulfillment. Seldom Seen is published by the University of Nebraska Press and is now available at online retailers and bo

He designed the Living Building Challenge 2.0 to raise the bar on green building: meet or exceed what nature provides. While the standards seem impossibly high, it may be simpler than we imagined.
