00901: MECA art fair
On view is a solo presentation of artist John Rivas, a figurative painter whose narrative is guided by stories of his ancestors. As a first-generation American, Rivas’ artwork is enriched with tales of family members; many of whom he has met remotely or through photographs.
With works by Russell Connor, Peter Daverington, Ryan Frank, Ashley Zelinskie, and Darryl Westly,Classic Nouveauexplores notions of archetypes and innovation through a dialogue with “the classics” from antiquity up through the present.
What does it mean for something to be “a classic?” The genesis of this concept can be traced back to Ancient Rome, when artworks from Classical Greece were looked back on as the apotheosis of culture and copied extensively.

LatchKey Galleryis pleased to present Never Mind the Bullocks, a group exhibition featuring artists, Darryl Westly, Inna Babaeva,Steven Fragale and Toby Barnes which examines contemporary art through a meta-modernist lens.
It should be first stated that this is not an attempt to define the cultural theory but to visualize the sentiment that may be meta-modernism. It is, however, a visual certainty that reflects our current society. Never Mind the Bullocks brings together four artists whose works individually offset a visual energy that embodies our sense of self in this time of chaos.
