One of the very first Country Life posts was about Portlandia, the hipsters-making-fun-of-hipsters show that is bringing a live act to Nashville later this month. It seems appropriate that we also let you know about the newest installment of artist Amelia Winger-Bearskin's Art Art Zine — not only is the online magazine Nashville-based, but this issue is Portland-centric. The issue is called “Practice Makes Portland: Perspectives on Art and Social Practice,” and it just went live this week.

Scroll through for information about last year's Open Engagement Conference at Portland State University, interviews with several of its participants, an incredible studio visit with Portland-based artist Wendy Red Star, and an interview with Portland-based artist/blogger Eva Lake. There's also an interview with Nashville's Tony Youngblood, a review of last year's Craftville dance party at Rymer Art Gallery, and a feature on W.A.L., the women's art league that we wrote about back when it was still looking for participants.

To find out more about the Open Engagement Conference and social practice art in general, check out the introductory video from Art Art Zine #3 after the jump.

(Full disclosure! Amelia is a friend of mine and I've contributed to various projects she organizes, including Art Art Zine. That said, I only write posts about things that I think warrant notice — Amelia just happens to involve herself in a ton of interesting stuff.)
