American Art Collector Celebrates 200th Issue With Tribute to Past Cover Artists


SCOTTSDALE, AZ, May 16, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — International Artist Publishing is proud to announce the 200th issue of American Art Collector, a milestone that will be celebrated with the June 2022 issue. The monthly publication, which made its debut to American art collectors with the October 2005 issue, will mark this milestone with a busy issue that will honor the magazine’s past, but also look to the future in the world of contemporary American realism.

Features of the issue include a welcome from the magazine’s editors, Wendie Martin and Adolfo Castillo; a letter from the magazine’s founder, Vincent Miller; a special thank you message to some of the magazine’s long-time supporters; and a look back at five artists who had multiple covers over the course of 200 issues. These artists include some of the best artists working today: Michael Carson, Yana Movchan, Brad Kunkle, Jeremy Mann and Andrea Kowch. Fans of Kowch’s work will be especially thrilled to get a glimpse of his most recent work and see the homes and museums that now hold some of his most iconic paintings, many of which have appeared on the cover of American Art. collector.

The June issue will also feature an in-depth examination by Santa Fe editor John O’Hern of how the magazine’s preview-focused approach has transformed the art world. “Offering collectors the opportunity to see something in the magazine and buy it in a gallery is certainly better than seeing something in a review only to learn they missed it,” O’Hern writes in the report.

“American Art Collector was created, from the start, to present gallery previews for collectors,” adds Wendie Martin. “Before we arrived on the scene with our first issue in October 2005, gallery previews were unheard of in the art market. For the past 16 years, we’ve supported and celebrated the success of galleries and artists across the country. Our 200th issue is packed with both contemporary interpretations of today’s art world and a few nostalgic nods to elements of our past.

Editor Michael Clawson also weighed in on the importance of the issue: “If you go back and look at our first issue from October 2005, you’ll notice a slightly different magazine…[But] an element of that publication has never faded, never wavered, and is now stronger than ever. This one thing is the goal that drives us through every issue: to bring our readers the best art on the market so they can make informed choices about the art in their lives. It’s the engine that drives American Art Collector, in this issue and the 199 that preceded it.

The 200th issue of American Art Collector is now on newsstands, and to help celebrate, the magazine is launching a special offer for new subscribers. Use promo code “AAC200” to get 20% off at
