A Distinctive Literary Journal & Arts Magazine For Art Essays & Literary Writing
Our ART TIMES Journal is one of those arts magazines that has two distinct personalities. Available to you both online and in print formats, it is a vibrant literary journal with art essays about painting, sculpting, drawing, film, theater, dance, music, book reviews, poetry, short fiction. Our writers are passionate about their subjects and guest writers from around the world contribute poetry, short fiction and their thoughts to our "Speak Out" column.
Art Resources For A Passionate Creative Community
The second personality trait is that ART TIMES is the go-to source for writers, painters, sculptors, film makers, actors, musicians and people looking for calendar listings, opportunity listings, arts schools, theatre auditions, juried art shows, performance locations, and writing competitions. Over the past 30 years that we have been publishing, numerous individuals have thanked us for leading them to galleries where there work is shown, companies who have produced their music and plays as well as to competitions where they have won awards and acclaim.Quick links to November's online featured Art essays, Art Resources & Literary Writing

Theater: Unimportant Productions Matter
…So what you do does matter. In addition to all the other good things you do, such as contributing to the cultural life of your community, providing cultural experiences for your participants, and improving appreciation and understanding of the art, you are also the one who might ignite the spark in someone who doesn’t yet know they have what it takes to rise to the top.
About ART TIMES: How it all Started
I am often asked how ART TIMES got started and thought this to be a good time to repeat some of what I wrote in August 2003 for the beginning of our 20th year. 1984, the year we began ART TIMES, was one of the major turning points of my life. I had been Directing the Ulster County Chamber of Commerce Career Education Program for several years (previous to that I taught English at the High School level and worked as a Counselor at several different facilities) and found that I wanted a new challenge. .
