About This Journal
History and MissionIn 1976, a student named Clare Rossini had the foresight to create a new magazine for publishing the artistic works of authors and artists living in the surrounding area. As Rossini wrote, “Art is the life current of the community. It is a source of pleasure and pride for us; it unites us with our human predecessors and successors. Art is no luxury; it is a vital human activity. By publishing Studio One, we wish to support the members of our Minnesota community dedicated to that activity and to make their art available to those for whom it was made.” While Studio One’s reach has extended greatly since our beginning in 1976, the current Editors-in-Chief have striven to publish a selection that still supports the mission written by Clare 46 years ago. Without Clare’s efforts, we would not be presenting the 2022 edition of Studio One.
Studio One would also like to thank our staff advisors, Matt Callahan and Rachel Marston, along with all the faculty of the CSB/SJU English Department, Catherine Rupp of the Literary Arts Institute, Patty Tholen and Palmer Printing, all our contributors, and all those who submitted their work.
