“Preview magazine is THE comprehensive guide to exhibitions and galleries in the Pacific Northwest – and it’s small enough to carry in a purse.”
“Thanks to Preview, I discovered a wonderful gallery hidden in an office building and an uplifting exhibition at a church on a visit to Vancouver BC.”
Gillian McConnell

“Preview is an essential resource for us, both to get the word out about our own exhibitions and to follow what everyone else is doing. It is invaluable to have a simple and reliable connection to the art community of this extensive region.
“Preview’s listings and short articles have drawn me to exhibitions that I would have missed otherwise. It has taken me to four states and provinces in the U.S. and Canada. We are fortunate to have such a terrific publication to bring us together.”
