Maybe you can't make it down to Miami to see what Richard Heller Gallery has in store in their booth at Miami Project, but what you can do in the Southern California region is Heller's exhibition showcase of Firelei Baez' "Appendix to a Memory Table." The show will run through December 14, 2013, with the series of works exploring the intersection between private memory and public spaces, delving into her interest in the corporeality of history and culture.

In just a few short years, Devin Troy Strother has become one of the most talked about fine artists on both the art fair circuit and art gallery circles. This week, the artist opens a new solo show, Look At All My Shit, at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, and we look back on Devin's feature in the January 2011 issue... when the star was just rising...

As you may know, the art world has descended upon New York CIty (well, its always does, but this week is special) for the Armory Show and satellite art fairs. This morning, we took a tour of both the Modern and Contemporary portions of the Armory. And we took a bunch of photos...

Richard Heller Gallery is proud to present, The Hand of the Slumber Man, the first solo exhibition at the gallery for Los Angeles based artist, Luke Whitlatch. The Hand of the Slumber Man is a suite of paintings and drawings that evoke the static experiences and moments in time that create myths and legends. These works are about what you thought you saw and how non-visual senses can be reinvented through abstraction. Color, surface and compositional elements act as placeholders for sensory information.

Five or six years ago, while I was roaming around Kinokuniya, one of my favorite book stores in San Francisco, something that looked like a disease-soaked small pamphlet-sized book caught my eye. In bold, but fancy letters, the word "EBOLA" was stamped on the front adorning a gorgeously rendered child-like bunny rabbit with no face. I had no idea what I was looking at, but I was more than intrigued.

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 been fans of Japan's Hideaki Kawashima for years, and his standout exhibition, Turning, at Richard Heller Gallery last year had some stunning works. Of course, when we read that the artist had studied under Nara for a few years and had also spent a two years as a Buddhist monk, the intense and focused serenity and influence in the works made us enjoy Kawashima even more.
