Landlocked celebrates first year with reader appreciation party



Downs and Dana Sikkila, manager of the 410 Project, also collected 11 short film submissions which will be reviewed by a panel of judges (as well as visitors, who can vote for their favorite film).

The show is meant to represent the wide variety of artists featured in Landlocked’s first 12 issues — from art professors to professional artists to hitherto unknowns — as well its emphasis on promoting the local arts scene.

“We’ve been able to showcase some really talented people,” Downs said. “It just seemed right for us to let other people see these works in person and enjoy them.” Downs added that Landlocked’s next issue is slated for February.
