Proechel, Fred Scharmen, Alexandr Skarlinski, and D.B. Stovall. Each full-color magazine will include one original trading card by Baltimore artist Lillian Bayley Hoover. Issue 4: Vernacular is printed in a hand-numbered limited edition of 300, and remains, as always, advertisement-free.
Locus Magazine is very excited to produce an exhibition to accompany the release of issue 4: Vernacular. The exhibition will feature works by issue 4 artists, and will open simultaneously on March 1st at Metro Gallery. The exhibition will be open to the public from March 1 – March 22.
