“Sometimes there are people in life who give you something immeasurably precious – ArtAscent has done just that for me. This truly beautiful magazine has given me a platform to show my work on an international level. I live in a little house, in a little town tucked away in a little part of the North West of England and I feel honoured and very privileged to be amongst such talented photographers, artists, poets and writers from around the world. THANK YOU ArtAscent for all your hard work, your dedication and your care in producing such a wonderful magazine and being such a positive force in the world.”

Samantha Browne

“I am stunned (not to mention extremely thrilled) to have been selected by ArtAscent. I am amazed by all the superb art included in this issue. I deeply appreciate the comments by ArtAscent’s profile writer on my forest paintings. It is impossible to capture fully in a painted image or a photograph all the sensory experiences provided in that rich environment, or to assume that one has even come close. I feel blessed that my current work has elicited this positive response. I am progressing through additional paintings in the same series, and I am greatly encouraged and motivated by this accolade.”

Leah Dockrill

“I just wanted to say how awesome and professional ArtAscent’s profile of me and my work is. I am extremely impressed with the intellectual interpretation of art and ability to portray that to the reader, WOW. Thank you so much for the opportunity to be a part of your magazine, it is really appreciated.”

Robert Tokley

“Through a fantastically vibrant website, excellent digital layout and beautifully produced magazine, ArtAscent excels in their support of international artists and writers. I am delighted and honored to be included in their Portrait 2018 edition. Thank you so much ArtAscent for greatly widening the audience of my work in such a wonderfully dynamic way.”

Jo Hay

“I recently received my copy of the Patterns issue and I felt very honored to be included. The quality of the publication layout is excellent and the work presented – both written and visual – is outstanding. It gave me inspiration to raise the bar on my own work and to do more professional promotion.”

Barbara Hillerman Lieske

“I have great affection for publishing ventures that attempt something new, something suited to our times.”

Bieke Stengos

“Thank you for all the support you guys have provided over the last couple years. I truly appreciate all the hard work that goes into putting these artworks together. You were the first publication to give me a chance to share my voice and I will never forget that. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Zach Agnew

“ArtAscent is a profound exhibition of international art and literature. ArtAscent’s welcoming of the abstract, obscure and atypical could not be more organized and comforting. Far too often, creativity is stifled by unimaginative editors or conventional beliefs. ArtAscent is holding true to the values of artists by allowing their creativity to be exposed uninhibited internationally.”

P.M. Wrighter

“I’m thrilled to be included in your Hidden issue. It’s quite an honour to have my images among such strong and interesting work. Thanks for your support of artists!”

Stacy Gardner

“Wow, talk about service! I am thrilled that my collage piece “Brancusi’s Atelier” is part of such a stunningly beautiful magazine. I’m ordering my copy now, and I’m recommending ArtAscent to other fine writers.”

Gail Tyson

“Just received my paper issue of ArtAscent Red – definitely glad to be part of it. The art, writing, printing, and layout are superb! The artist submission requirements allowed for me to project a written in depth analysis of my drawings.”

Walter A. Fydryck

“ArtAscent has provided a unique opportunity to be presented with international visual artists while respectfully sharing interest with literary artists. This has been a unique rich experience. ArtAscent has validated my art and encouraged people to offer me opportunities for visually expressing my ideas with a wider range of people.”

Patricia Terrell-O’Neal

“Thank you ArtAscent for providing us artists (and writers) a platform to not only showcase our work, but to also indirectly engage in creative dialogue by having our works curated around a thoughtful theme.”

Yen Phang

“You were kind enough to award me the Gold Writer position in your 13th issue, Unknown. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the honor. I was particularly touched by the wonderful introduction to my work. I felt you truly understood what I was doing and that is so gratifying! This accomplishment is truly an encouragement ‘go for the gold’ with my writing! Thank you!”

Tamara Cline

“ArtAscent is stimulating, the images stunning and the written work varied and interesting. I am delighted to have had a poem of mine published in the Blue issue.”

Gabriel Griffin

“Thank you for choosing my work for the Pet’s exhibit! What a fantastic organization you are to provide the wonderful opportunity for artists to exhibit online, in print and then to archive the work for future collectors to see! I’m honored to be in the exhibit and I’m looking forward to seeing all the artwork.”

Cate Woodruff

“I would like to thank everyone who is behind ArtAscent for providing the opportunity to present my work, grow in confidence, dig deeper into my imagination and explore ways to better express myself. You have published my works in a previous issue titled “Hidden.” That motivated me to go through another long hours-session with my work and I am sure other artists and writers have felt the same positive inspiration.“

Petra Knezic

“I applied to your call under a very FUNNY threat of physical violence by one of my friends. She told me I had to submit my “Long Live The Queen” to your call or she would smack me with one of my own signs. She is a HUGE fan of ArtAscent. And also… I am no fan of being whacked with a sign.”

Jennifer Nicole

“I have to thank ArtAscent for its wonderful support of writers. And for acknowledging writing as an art form – not all quarters do. After being awarded Gold Artist recognition for writing in the ‘Figures’ issue, I finally feel able to say ‘writer’ instead of my day job when people ask me what I do. And to launch my writer’s website. Thank you, ArtAscent, for providing me with that confidence!”

Linda Hegland

“ArtAscent affords all artists the opportunity to expose a lifetimes’ preparation. An opportunity to expose oneself, along with ones’ work. An opportunity to realise ones’ dreams. Success. I’ve used every opportunity to uncover the preparations that have painted my vision. It took time for me to find opportunities that I was prepared for. Each day until I found them, I continued to prepare. To be me. ArtAscent bridges the gap between artists and their road to exposure; the road to yourself.”

Alex Steiner
London, United Kingdom

“On reading the artist profile article written about my art I felt an immediate sense of connection with the ArtAscent art critic. I feel the words beautifully articulate my art and its place in the world. I can’t express how much this review means to me. I will treasure it always.”

Aleta Lederwasch

“Thank you for presenting us artists with such an awesome opportunity and exposure that gives us a chance to succeed and actually earn a living doing what we love. This is truly huge and I cannot thank you guys enough.”

Roopa Dudley

“The magazine looks great, so well designed and such a clean layout. Thank you for the wonderful review of the work! Very excited, thanks again!”
