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.

Richard Heller Gallery is pleased to present Hours, the first solo exhibition at the Santa Monica gallery for Los Angeles-based artist, Vanessa Prager. She will be exhibiting a series of ballpoint pen drawings on music paper, most of which look like cinematic scenes of modern day noir. The exhibition opens on November 10, 2012.

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.

Corey Arnold’s photography has seized my imagination since it was first printed in Juxtapoz back in 2008, and his new series is no disappointment. “Wolf Tide” opens this Saturday at Richard Heller Gallery with deep running themes of our current political and economic unrest woven through an expansive rural landscape marred by human wreckage.

We have written about the work of Paco Pomet on the site before, saying the Granada-born artist made work that looked like slightly off portraits from a 1950's sci-fi, Cold War film set. The artist is set to open a solo show, Horns and Tales, at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica on Saturday, October 29.

We are looking forward to fine artist David Jien's solo show at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, California this September 2011. Jien creates smaller, very detailed works using solor pencil, gouache, graphite and gold leaf on paper.
