 hi guys, do any of you know who the contemporary artist is who uses stuff like pipe cleaners in his work?  )also, anybody have suggestions on art magazines?  i've gotten artforum, art in america, american craft, the usual, but they are all so euro-art,

With titles like American Craft, Art in America--I doubt the focus is on European art.  Their  articles on the contemporary  art scene  may be putting you off a bit since most of the artists in  these magazines work with ideas/materials unfamiliar to the average art viewer---and you seem to be imore interested in traditional media-- you mention an artist who uses pipe cleaners--a much more friendly thing to work with---especially if they haven't been used  :-).

Try American Artist for more traditional painting and sculpture---Southwest Art, also in the same vein, as are many other regional art mags---and for world art, there was an excellent magazine a few years back that may be still be publishing--Contemporanea--covered the scene country by country.

Best wishes,
Joseph
