ArtStew started as a small, grass-roots art ’zine for Lawrence, Kansas and its surrounding areas back in January of 2006. It was made for the local art community, by the local art community, supporting all categories of self-expression. Whether visual, auditory, or any other arrangement of aesthetics, we’ve showcased it in the magazine or on our website. Our original purpose was merely to reach out, meet, and collaborate.


Today, the magazine’s intention is pretty much the same. Remaining dedicated to promote and inform, we are continually bringing together the creative do-it-yourselfers, collaborators, and any other artistic networkers that we can. We are helping to foster an outlet to join diverse ideas and information through discussion and presentation. Simply put, ArtStew’s goal is to help create new opportunities for art to flourish in Lawrence by bringing the artististic community together. Whether you consider yourself an artist, or just an art lover, we welcome you.

Dear Reader, Welcome to the fifth issue of ArtStew Magazine. We’ve got some great local art in this issue, along with a non-local artist. This magazine is dedicated to local art but we do get submissions from artists outside of the Lawrence area from time to time and will include them occasionally. Please go see the paintings by Jane Flanders at Aimee’s coffee house that are up for the month of May. She was nice enough to place an ad in this issue and if you like this mag, go support people that support ArtStew. Right now we are not sure when the next issue will be coming out, but hopefully soon. My design business (Artstew Design and Creative Arts) has been keeping me very busy and I have not had much time to work on ArtStew magazine or the website. Unfortunately I am not very good at asking for help and the effect is that ‘zine does not get the attention that I think that it deserves. I am in the beginning stages of putting together a collection of local artist information (a directory of sorts), so if you are a local artist please pass along your info and we will get it out to the community in some form. Thank you for your interest and support. Everything is Art and Art is Everything. Scott Stewart, Publisher
