More than ever we appreciate the unique, unusual, weird in life and we’re willing to share it. The 22 Magazine brings together folks worldwide.
Different viewpoints equals fun art.
New York can be an intimidating place but it can also be a home. To keep these unique, incredible artists, writers and musicians from New York and otherwise around, we need your help.
Please consider donating, even something very small. We are still struggling to meet our goal and we know there are folks out there reading! We’re not asking for much. A few dollars goes a long way. We’ve added a $5 and a $250 option to the donation and you’ll note a very awesome tote bag or t-shirt is available at the $250 level from contributor and comic artist, John Jennison.
We know, it seems like a-lot but it’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many amazing projects we’d like to really give a jumpstart to and your’s could very likely be one of them.
Thanks for listening again and please consider giving today.

I write to let you know The 22 Magazine is now hosting its first fundraising campaign, and how important it is for The 22 that we meet our fundraising goal for this project. Every person involved has done a huge amount of work out of the kindness of their hearts and has helped to make this magazine a bigger success than I ever could have imagined. I cannot thank them, or you the readers, enough for what you contribute on a daily basis. That being said, in these times, everyone needs as much help as they can get. We are no exception.
Nearly everything about The 22 is funded from our own pockets and unfortunately circumstances no longer make it possible to give in the same way. Thus I have to turn to you. For the past year we’ve implemented several series that showcase the works of artists, writers and musicians, with almost no funding. This is no small feat in New York City, and undoubtedly everyone sacrificed a huge amount of themselves to make it possible. While it may be ideal to continue in this way, it’s definitely not feasible. What we are asking for is only a very small fraction of what is needed to create things like the first print version of The 22 Review, a bigger, badder, better website, more in-depth content and larger, more excellent events.
Even $10 will help us take small steps towards our goal. In the long run you will find, as always, that with The 22 the benefits outweigh the cost. Please take the time to read some of the reasons to donate below and consider helping out.
Thank you all for your time and for the amazing things you create on a daily basis.

The month of September is devoted to Vol 1 contributors April Gertler and Dolores Alfieri. April contributed an amazing interview to Vol 1 and you can give it a read below in its entirety or on the magazine site at: http://www.the22magazine.com/Pages/AprilGertler.html
THE 22 MAGAZINE: Why did you choose to live and work in Berlin?
APRIL GERTLER: I finished graduate school and had done an exchange program in Germany and Frankfort at an art school there, and I was sort of weighing my pros and cons. I had always wanted to live in Europe. My father’s from Hungary, and my mother’s from Holland. I thought about living in Holland, but having this chance to be in Frankfort had been really exciting, and Berlin has always been this kind of city of promise. Berlin is really exciting and just offers so much. There is so much vastness and openness. There is still this feeling of opportunity, but the opportunity is very much there for you to develop yourself, which is what I also find really difficult about living in Berlin. There is a huge positive, but the huge negative is that there’s not a lot of energy coming from the city. What I mean is, here, in New York, you walk on the street and there’s sort of this vibration. There’s this buzz because there are so many people in the street; you feel people’s energy and get electrified from that. It doesn’t exist in Berlin. It’s a very slow city. It’s very calm. That is why I really like it, although, it’s very hard to get motivated. So, there’s this challenge with the city.

Things are about to get fun. We’ve finally finalized our list for Volume 2/11! We’ll be wrapping up our showcase of Volume One contributors as the new models roll off the line for Vol 2/II: Sign and Symbol. I love this part, two ships creaking and swaying, as they pass each other in the night, and I am particularly excited about the fresh perspective in our upcoming volume. Our mission remains a showcase of contributors and luckily this volume has a real kick to it. The combination of emerging and established talent is gorgeous and I can’t thank anyone or everyone enough for sending work in or for helping us develop the blog. For me, this project makes it feel like Christmas every day of the year. As always it is your support and talent that makes it worthwhile.
Here’s what you can look forward to!
September-December 2011 (Wrap of contributor showcase for Vol 1.)
November 1st, 2011 (CONTRIBUTOR REVEAL BEGINS ONLINE)
December 22nd 2011 (Vol 2/II: Sign & Symbol goes live online)
Early 2012 (Really exciting announcement about the future course of the 22!)
Parties and events come as they may, often without warning, so we’ll keep you updated in the next couple of months on your chance to celebrate with these amazing folks.

( )He tried not to look at the leaves. He would do it like pulling off a band-aid, he thought. Then again, he thought, he would do it slowly, with graceful strokes.
( )Michele placed a kitchen chair down in the backyard, four legs of wood set into the late-season grass. His fingers, crooked, bent with stiffness, the cool air suffering them to the bone, held the orange chord and plugged it into the outlet beneath the porch.
( )The wind blew against him; he looked down at his shirt, the fabric snapping back against his chest, clinging to his faded muscles, and he touched his chest.

THE 22 MAGAZINE: Where did you grow up and what lead you to pursue art and filmmaking?
Tobias Stretch: I grew up in the hills of northern Appalachia, northeastern Pennsylvania. I’m not sure if it was a choice that led me to art, but I feel like the world in my head had to be made real, otherwise I’d go mad. Art is like a pressure valve for me: once my head gets too full, I have to let out all the wild thoughts. It’s like opening the gate to let a pen full of acrobatic, rabid children roam about the countryside creating mayhem and beautiful chaos—much like nature.
22: You describe your work, using the words of Antonin Artaud as “a cinema which is studded with dreams.” Are many of your works dream-inspired?

It’s finally here! April Gertler was SO kind to do this interview during a trip over from Berlin promoting her project PICTURE BERLIN. Even in the midst of a terrible cold she spoke eloquently and with the kind of grace that is evident in all of her work. Like her pieces, April herself is subtle and wonderfully complex at the same time. Her collages speak to her background in social science, and often include witty or poignant references to collective and personal histories.
Special thanks to Robert O’Haire of Straw2Gold and Jeff Burns.

Part of what we do here at The 22 is highlight each of our contributor’s with a special “featured artist” section on the blog and our main site. This includes special content, and show announcements. This month we are starting our featured artists series with Brian Dettmer. Carver, collector, “book surgeon”, call him what you will, Dettmer’s work is layering of magnificent patience combined with a playful mind. His sculptures are reminiscent of futuristic depictions of urban and organic structures built out of the pre-history of encyclopedic and vintage texts. For most of the month of May we will be celebrating Dettmer’s work with special blog content, as well as many posts featuring his amazing creations. To view this and all of Brian’s work look for the “BRIAN DETTMER” tag under the categories section. To see all our past featured artist’s look for “THE 22 FEATURED ARTIST.” To see all of Brian’s featured content from The 22 Magazine visit his page online: http://www.the22magazine.com/Pages/briandettmer.html
