Line is an art publication focusing on art from Skidmore and downtown Saratoga Springs. Articles published in the magazine examine exhibits at the Tang and Shick Art—as well as dance and the occasional music performances. A typical Line piece is a well-crafted student response to an art exhibit, focusing on the emotions inspired in the viewer.
Club co-presidents Allison Gretchko and Daniel Kapp, both members of the class of 2017, are currently working to improve the magazine. “It’s great because you can have someone who just loves to write join the club, or someone who just likes art join the club,” Gretchko says. Line is currently looking to involve more members in all aspects of the process of the magazine, including writing articles and designing the print edition. Anyone is encouraged to join, especially those who enjoy writing or have experience with InDesign.
“Our club members [are] passionate, quirky, intellectual, silly, and dedicated,” Kapp says. The dynamic group has been successfully transitioning the publication into a “more sleek [and] professional” form, the co-president elaborates.
At the moment, Line’s 2015 edition is still coming together. The magazine will be completed about mid-March and presented at a launch party on April 9 in the Tang Teaching Museum. The catered event will showcase spoken-word poetry as well as performances by campus bands and a cappella groups.
The club plays a vital role in the art scene on campus by encouraging and facilitating conversations about art. “I think if more people understood the Tang, then more people would appreciate it,” Kapp explains. “Our goal is to reach out to as many people as possible…to make it easy to join something cool.” To read Line Archives or to learn more about the publication, click here.
