In 2008 Jason Dowd established “The Expressionist Magazine”. The magazine was designed to bring art and appreciation to the world. As an artist himself, Dowd realized quickly art appreciation doesn’t exist as much today as it was in the past and he was bound to change it. As the Expressionist Magazine grew he realized he needed to incorporate more and more mediums because art was more than just fine art. Finally, the magazine outgrew itself and thus needed a facelift, and with that the AME Magazine was born. The AME (Art, Music and Entertainment) encompasses ever facet of the art and entertainment world.
Dowd was the executive editor for The Expressionist Magazine and remains in the position for The AME Magazine. To expand the reach to the fans, Dowd hosts a radio show The AME Radio Show which is an audio version of the magazine bringing you great guests and advice for artists of all mediums. Additionally you will be able to see his live interviews in the AME Television Show.
Dowd has over 20 years in the art industry. He’s worked with a nationally touring rock band and video taped on CrueFest 2. He’s created award winning photographs, and produced a variety of great radio shows. He was a photographic reporter for “The San Diego Voice and Viewpoint” covering Sen. Obama’s only primary campaign stop in Tampa, FL (2008). He’s the founder of “Imagine-Nation Art Studios” and produces the radio station “AMFM247 Broadcasting Network”.
