Associate Publisher Retires, Starting a New Chapter
Streamline Publishing ushers in a new chapter as Associate Publisher Anne W. Brown retires this summer. For more than ten years, Brown has been involved with Fine Art Connoisseur and Plein Air magazine.
In her final years at Streamline, Brown was developing the western United States marketing efforts. Brown has participated in the inception of the in-person Plein Air Convention and Expo (PACE) and Figurative Art Convention and Expo (FACE), the creation of Streamline’s digital products, and the successful growth of the magazines despite the pandemic.
“Anne Brown is a superstar,” said Eric Rhoads, CEO and Publisher. “Though we hate to lose her to retirement she will always be part of the Streamline family. She has helped us change so many lives over the years by leading our advertising and marketing team and helping artists, galleries, and organizations grow through our advertising. She will be deeply missed.”
Brown’s future plans include holding a position on the National Sculpture Society board, working on upcoming anniversaries with the Salmagundi Club, and consulting. She says her current aspiration is to keep her “enormous second year veggie garden” in Montana alive and to finish a screenplay on early rodeo riders with her partner, Rusty.
“Although the joy of working with the regional, national, and international art world will never stop,” said Brown, “my future holds more camping and fly-fishing trips with Rusty, our two dogs, four adult kids, their spouses, and grandkids.”
She added, “I’ll always enjoy going to art openings, chatting with artists, and creating a nurturing environment for visiting artists, but not being on deadlines and looking out at the Bitterroot Valley from my front porch with a cup of coffee in the morning sounds delightful!”
With Brown’s retirement, Streamline Publishing welcomes Katie Reeves, who has been in the publishing business for 30 years, in both regional and national magazines.
