We saw a lot of art here at the magazine each day, but occasionally you get stopped in your tracks, and Kim Keever's work just did that to us. Currently showing at David B Smith Gallery in Denver, Keever shoots large-scale photographs of incredibly detailed topographies in a 200-gallon tank, which is then filled with water.

Josh Keyes opened a new solo show, Migration, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this past weekend. We stopped by for the opening, because, as you know, they don't like to show you all the Keyes' pieces until opening night. A nice collection of works, including our favorite one here, is on display through November 19, 2011.

A few years ago, as we working to complete our 15th Anniversary show and benefit with Detroit in mind, we got word that Matthew Barney was working in Detroit on a special project. After Barney donated a piece of art to our show, we followed his progress and work that he was completing. Needless to say, the work was complex with a full narrative in mind...

We have long been admirers of Chloe Early's work, but some of the new works in her newest solo show, Feathers and Wax (opening at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC on Thursday, October 20) are particularly impressive. Her paintings on aluminum panels are elegant, fleeting, with a nostalgic, romantic atmosphere.
