Maake Magazine is an online gallery and print magazine showcasing the work of emerging artists. Our goal is to exhibit innovative and experimental contemporary artwork and foster conversation and community. As the art world becomes more diverse we hope to support the expansion and reinvention of traditional disciplines of art and making, where media and methods converge and cross boundaries to create unique combinations. We explore the place where fiber, textiles, sculpture, ceramics, painting, digital, design and more come together to create exciting and groundbreaking work. We also actively promote the work of featured artists via social media, printed issues of our magazine and on the blog.
