Publisher and artist pursues dream of bringing back publication – nationally

23 09 2014

David F. Heatwole, the publisher of The Main ARTery magazine has launched a website that spells out his local, state, national and International vision.  Part of the National Vision is to bring back The Main ARTery magazine that was a major passion for the art promoter.  To raise the funds to be able to bring this vision to life the artist is selling 30,000 works of art in the form of personalized 1 million dollar “Reality Checks.”   Each check is to be an original work of art, customized per purchasers request and signed by the artists.  So far the artist has not started to market the campaign as of yet but is generating interest and pre-sales.  If you were a fan of the magazine and want to see Heatwole bring it back to life visit and buy your check today.

Was, still is, and always will be…

So, by now those of you that know of The Main ARTery publication must know that there hasn’t been a new issue out since the Oct/November 2008 issue and there won’t be another one for sometime.  However, please know that this isn’t over.  When The Main ARTery comes out again it will come back with force.  Please come back once in awhile to this blog to see what new news I might have for The Main ARTery and the arts in the Quad-state region of West Va, Md, Pa, and Va.

More great things for the arts in West Virginia and surrounding communities soon on it’s way so stay tuned!

Artfully Yours,

David F. Heatwole  (
