We are pleased to announce that Josephine Gardiner has become the new Devon and Cornwall Editor.  10/02/2020

Important message from our writer in Hong Kong:  “Recently, I think you may heard that the Novel Coronavirus Infectious Disease is now seriously affecting Hong Kong. I had planned to visit some exhibitions and write a new review in January. However, the disease speedily spread. All citizens are suggested not to go out and stay away from crowds by the Hong Kong government. All museums are closed and the schools are suspended too. So, I’ll probably let you down as I can’t write a new review for the March/April issue. I am really sorry!
Warmest regards,
Ivy Leung

Hoping the Coronavirus subsides soon, we wish Ivy all the best,
The New Art Examiner

New Art Examiner writer, Mary Fletcher, using her ability as an art critic, covered the rally of the Labour Party at Falmouth more as a cultural event or rock concert than a political rally. Well done Mary!

An Eye on Washington will soon be released. This book contains critical reviews of art historian and publisher of the New Art Examiner, Jane Addams Allen. Allen’s writing printed in the Washington Times, 1982-1989 gives evidence of art criticism at its best. A must read!

  1. I look forward to meeting with writers and artists at the St Ives Library on Saturday. Much has changed since 1974 when the NAE began, a 4-page tabloid on newsprint. Through thick and thin the NAE has always stood for writing and offers readers a voice in a world where many different voices need to be heard.
