MSB's latest book, Mystery Spot Volume 2: Nature's Nation brings together the work of seven artists and writers all dealing with contemporary ideas of nature and landscape. They are (click on names to see their work):

Caleb Coppock: Multimedia artist, co-owner/director of Peerless Gallery in Omaha, Nebraska.

Paula McCartney: Photographer, former McKnight fellow and current MN State Arts Board grantee.

Kate Casanova: Visual artist currently finishing her MFA in Sculpture at the University of Minnesota.

Lex Thompson: Photographer and former McKnight fellow.

Pamela Valfer: Visual Artist and former MN State Arts Board grantee.

Emily Roehl: Writer currently pursuing her Ph.D. in American Studies at the University of Texas, MSB co-founder.

Chad Rutter: Visual artist, former MN State Arts Board grantee and MSB co-founder.

Sponsoring Mystery Spot Volume 2: Nature's Nation is an excellent opportunity for you to support contemporary art and independent publishing, and to own a lovely tome of exciting new explorations into the themes of nature and landscape. MSB needs your help to cover the cost of printing between 300 and 500 copies at a commercial press in Minneapolis this spring/summer. Once the book is printed, there will be book launch events in Minneapolis, MN, Omaha, NE and Austin, TX. Please consider supporting the work of these outstanding artists and help Mystery Spot Books reach a benchmark accomplishment with its fifth and most ambitious publication yet.
