2010 is upon us and it looks to be an exciting year in the art world. Things officially get kicking this week with a slew of openings taking place around the globe. Leading the charge this weekend is the new body of work from Josh Keyes opening at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this Saturday. Featuring some of his largest work yet, and his first self portrait, this show is not to be missed and is expected to sell out in advance of the opening.

We look forward to bringing you details on all the shows that matter in the months ahead. Get out and support the arts!
