Unfortunately, for the vast majority of the Josh Keyes fans who don’t live in Colorado (like us), seeing the new body of work entitled “Collision” in person will not be possible (unless you bought one). However, we are lucky that there are some exhibition photos of the beautiful pieces in situ at the David B. Smith Gallery through December 11th. The ten paintings in this show were conceived and based on a complex 16th century mythology (explained in detail in our recent interview with Josh) […]

It’s always exciting for us to see emerging artists we enjoy pushing the boat out and really delivering solid showings of work. AM recently brought you a glimpse of what Toronto based artist Brian Donnelly was bringing to his solo exhibition “Obedience and Savagery”, which opened last week at Show & Tell Gallery, and after seeing these preview images we had high hopes for the rest of the work. Donnelly’s animal/human mash-ups were shown alongside Winnie Truong’s delicate coloured pencil work in the form of […]
Last week, Tiffany Bozic took a fresh batch of works (previewed) to the Joshua Liner Gallery for her exhibition “Confiding to Strangers”. This latest series was breathtaking to say the least as pieces consisting of paper and wood impressed the New York crowd that beelined their way to the show. Apparent in the artwork was Tiffany’s vision and talent that seems to mix Discovery Channel fascination with the imagination of an artist with a unique vision. Check out the force of nature after the jump.
As Art Basel Miami Beach continues to strengthen it’s foothold as one of the premiere global contemporary art fairs, South Beach native OHWOW will yet again be an important player in the week’s festivities with their third installment of the now famous It Ain’t Fair.

Last Saturday night, AM stopped by the Corey Helford to attend the opening of “Keepers of Creation”, the new body of work from Ohio-based Melissa Forman. Her paintings impressed with their detail, use of light, and composition, filling the lower level of the space of the gallery with her female portraiture set in and interacting with the natural world. More photos after the jump…
Over the weekend, Tim Barber’s first major US solo exhibition opened triumphantly at OHWOW in Miami. Well-known as the former photo editor of famed Vice Magazine, as well as mastermind behind the innovative tinyvices online gallery where up-and-coming talent is showcased, Barber’s own artistic vision takes center stage with Untitled Photographs, a collection of lyrical images as conceptually captivating as they are technically distinctive. Much like his contemporaries Dash Snow and Ryan McGinley (with whom the artist is close friends), the New York-based photographer is […]

Chicago-based artist Dzine recently opened a solo show entitled “Voodoo” at NY’s Leo Koenig Projekte. The inspiration for this current body of work came from the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, during Dzine’s residency at the Instituto Buena Bista, Curaçao’s Center for Contemporary Art. While there, he stumbled upon Swaybar, a unique aspect of the island’s popular culture in which youth create custom elongated bicycles as both transportation and status symbols. Dzine, who is well-known for his own customized low-rider bicycles, secretly created one of […]
Rosson Crow (featured) recently opened her exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati (CAC) to a excited Ohio crowd. The show entitled “Myth of the American Motorcycle” (previewed) centered around the classic highway icon and it’s effect on American culture. Rosson underwent an intense study of the biker lifestyle the year prior in anticipation for this show. It seems that it paid off as this series is a great match for “RoCrow’s” nostalgic abstraction on familiar settings that “never-was”. Check out this great show after […]
