From the first time we saw the work of Devin Troy Strother at Richard Heller Gallery, we knew the Brooklyn-based artist was someone to follow and could see a bright future ahead. Years later and a few strong showings around the world (plus a Juxtapoz interview in January 2011) we are very excited to see his new works he has prepared for his show at Los Angeles' Richard Heller Gallery, opening September 8.

We have profiled Bill Dunlap's work in the magazine before, but we have just come across his black painting and faces series and wanted to share with our readers. Dunlap has shown in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and Boston this summer in various group shows, but is also known to paint a very well-constructed barn mural. He also "Can't read, can't write." And was "Raised by wolves and skunks."

Allison Sommers is a Brooklyn-based artist working primarily in gouache. She creates complicated, intricate, uncomfortable worlds of meat, vegetation, and birds and beasts of various sizes. Her work is intentionally vague, both conceptually and morally, and hints at underlying narrative structure without providing clear artist-authorship to guide the viewer through.

Juxtapoz brings you an exclusive preview of Hannah Stouffer's solo exhibition and installation at Kinfolk Studios, opening this evening in Brooklyn, NY. Exploring the concept of land, escape and nostalgic solitude within a space, Stouffer portrays a post-primeval desire for our natural environment, fully realized through both memory and beingness, executed on a massive 40ft. wall in Kinfolk's project space. Opening reception is tonight, Thursday July 26th from 7-12pm.

"Tatiana Suarez is a Brooklyn-based Miami native. Her charming style is distinctive; first, the trademark eyes that draw the viewer into a beautiful and surreal world. Suarez takes full advantage of the oil paint's ability to create creamy, soft images on canvas. Rich with symbols that stem from her Brazilian and El Salvadorian heritage, subjects appear as if they are under water, frozen in lovely stillness. The doe-eyed figures look childlike, but also exude sexual overtones, ornamented with plants, insects and other unsettling accompaniments. Beauty is presented concurrently with exotic -- even creepy -- creatures to create enchanted narratives."

Opening: Thursday, July 26th from 7-12pm.

We just got an email from one of our favorite illustrators, Brooklyn's Suzanne Sattler (featured in the magazine on our books), who will open her studio as part of the annual Northside Open Spaces in Brooklyn on June 17, , where 80+ artists living and working in Williamsburg and Greenpoint open their studios to the public for the Northside Festival. To get you ready, we compiled some of our favorite Sattler works. List of open studios after the jump . . .

We posted this photo by Robert Banat on our Instagram the other day and got a ton of response. Brooklyn-based artist, Tom Fruin, has built a 25' tall water tank created with 1,000 salvaged plexiglass pieces found around NYC. The piece is illuminated by natural light in day time, and during night a Ryan Holsopple ardunio-controlled light show goes off inside the work.
