  • Salinas, CA (1888PressRelease) May 21, 2013 - A momentum is building in the literary art scene that is palpable. The wind driving this tide is a magazine that started in the quirky realm of Santa Cruz and is now, a mere three issues into its infancy, turning heads nationwide. Catamaran Literary Reader, the young prodigy of Monterey Bay artist and poet Catherine Segurson, is doing to visual arts, literature and poetry in the United States what the fabled Paris Review did for the Left Bank.

    The art in Catamaran -- literary and visual -- is helping readers shed the chains of convention to imagine something new and different, satiating readers' appetite for an emotional connection and experience for what they know is important.

    The writers and critics and artists appearing in each issue of Catamaran are from near and far, but are connected by thematic elements of environmentalism, free thought, artistic spirit and most importantly innovative concepts that will explore the cutting edge of expressive art.

    Catamaran Literary Magazine will be launching its third issue this June as well as holding a special Catamaran Artists Only Exhibition at The R. Blitzer Gallery located on 2801 Mission St (Mission Extension) on the West Side area of Santa Cruz. The exhibition will include the following Catamaran Magazine artists Warren Chang, Philip Rosenthal, Andrea Borsuk, Dee Hooker, Sarah Bianco, Joao De Brito, Charles Prentiss, Jean Beebe, Iris Irina Silva , Erika Perloff, Joe Ravetz, Katie Cater, Sandra Ivany, Noelle Correia and Adrienne Momi. The exhibition will be on display from Friday, June 7th to Saturday, June 29th.

    There will be a special opening reception at the gallery on Tuesday, June 11th showcasing the 14 Catamaran Artists who will be displaying artwork as well as readings by several Catamaran Authors including award winning author Alfredo Vea, and Ernest Hemingway's grandaughter "Vanessa Blumberg". Join us to pick up the latest issue of Catamaran Magazine and learn what we have to offer on June 11th from 6-9pm. There will be music, and as well as a bar where attendees can purchase wine, beer and non alcoholic beverages. The event will take place at The R. Blitzer Gallery located on 2801 Mission St (Mission Extension) on the West Side area of Santa Cruz.

    There is a renewed hunger in America for soulful connection, for an emotional link that ascends to and challenges the concept of who we are. An exploration of what truly matters. Whether through intriguing criticism that says it is OK to view the world as others see it, or striking visual art and poetry that envelopes the senses, Catamaran is delivering a unique experience.

    And readers are getting it. As with any movement, the winds of change are strong and cover vast distances. What started as a boutique publication is beginning to command attention outside of Monterey Bay -- the West Coast experience in many ways is being replicated around the world. That experience is defined -- explained, if you will -- by the artists' interpretations of what they see happening around them.

    Those interpretations should not be treated lightly. They are expressed in each issue Catamaran with a sleek printing platform that, while more costly to publish, affords the reproduction excellence that the finest emerging artists are proud to be associated with. Art, to be effective, must transcend the medium it is delivered on.

    Content rules the day and defines the medium, yet there are many things that cannot, yet, be effectively expressed on a digital format. Soulfulness does not contain gigabytes. It requires a visceral connection with the viewer and reader that can only be achieved in a publication whose own beauty reflects the inner beauty inside its pages.
