We’re awaiting confirmation on this. THE magazine has not paid its writers for a couple months and has now lost both its editor and publisher. But we can’t get a message to the owner, Santa Fe Publishing Group, because the only voicemail listed for it is full.
A pity if THE does go under because it’s a handsome-looking publication that gave arts coverage — especially coverage of galleries — some needed ink. I was going to add, “and gave local cultural journalists and photographers an outlet and a freelance paycheck” — but well, it would seem, not so much lately.
