The Mercurial (web) magazine & gallery

themercurialThe Mercurial was a wonderful, worldly (web) magazine rooted in Greater Danbury, Connecticut and New England. It had an annual unique readership of 30,000.

The magazine, founded by Amanda Bloom in the fall of 2009, was devoted to off-the-beaten-path stories, the arts, investigative news, and global issues.

In April of 2011, The Mercurial Gallery opened its doors to the public. Its mission was to foster adventurous and accessible art in downtown Danbury, Connecticut with exhibitions, music performances, artist talks, and other events.

The Mercurial (web) magazine & gallery closed its brick-and-mortar and digital doors in October of 2013.
