Dear Readers,

As Carla approaches our 3 year anniversary (with our upcoming issue 12), I am overwhelmed and honored by the way the magazine has been received in our community. When I launched the magazine in 2015, I never could have foreseen the enthusiasm, and love that you, our readers, have for the magazine and the role it plays within the L.A. art community. THANK YOU for your steadfast support! Seriously, thank you—without a devoted reader base, we could not be where we are today.

Since our early days 3 years ago, we have over doubled our print run, expanded our reach locally, and nationally, and written about over 1000 local artists and galleries. As always, we are committed to our FREE distribution within L.A., so that our conversation can be widely accessible to a large audience. We also have continued our ongoing mission to pay our writers according to W.A.G.E. standards. As an independent magazine, we rely on generous support from our advertisers (most of whom are local L.A. galleries), to cover our base operating costs. Through the generosity of our advertising partners, we have been able to sustain our quarterly print run, weekly online content, and have launched a monthly podcast.

Still, as an artist-run initiative, every spring, we turn to you, our dedicated reader base, inviting support through a financial contribution to Carla. This support will not only assist in paying our writers, designers, and editors, but it will also facilitate our continued growth and engagement within L.A. and beyond. Have you read something interesting in our pages over the last year? Been inspired? Provoked? Have we sparked a dialogue or idea? Across our medias, our goal is to engage in critical dialogue, and I trust that you come to us expecting this high level of discourse. This is your chance to give back to the magazine that has written about you, spoken to you, or made you think over the last year. We invite you to partner with us in supporting another year of insightful and engaging criticism. With your donation, starting at just $10, you can help sustain Carla into the coming year as we continue to grow and offer a platform for exchange to our community.

Looking forward to the coming year,

Lindsay Preston Zappas
Carla Founder, Publisher, and Editor-in-Chief
