Galleria Patricia Armocida is proud to present Secret Garden, the first solo exhibition in Italy by Todd James that opened on Tuesday May 13, 2014 and will run through August 1st. For this occasion, the artist created seven large-scale acrylic on canvas paintings and eight medium and small-scale gouache on paper paintings. For his first Italian solo exhibition, James toes the thin line between erotic and ironic, capturing his Junoesque and voluptuous women during their private, secret moments taking place behind closed doors.

And finally, the art. We are so proud of all the artwork that is on exhibit in "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," open at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through June 14, 2014. It blows our mind that we are now two decades old, but what is even more amazing are all the artists that have been in our pages over those years. Their works tell the story, create the chance to document alternative art narratives, bring out the fans, bring out the collectors, and keep the creative energy of Juxtapoz alive. Here, then, is all the art in "Art Truancy."

On May 15, 2014, Juxtapoz and Jonathan LeVine Gallery will open "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," a group exhibition at both of LeVine's spaces at 557C West 23rd Street & 529 West 20th Street in Manhattan. The exhibition features a wide-range of cover artists and featured artists from over the past 20 years, and today we have a look at some of the covers from artists in the show. From Robert Williams to Grotesk, Mark Ryden to Swoon, here is a bit of a history lesson to catch up on, or reminisce over.

Our December 2013 cover artist and all around great artist Todd "REAS" James is set to open "Supernatural" at Sandra Gering Inc in NYC on Feburary 27, 2014. As we can see with a few of the previews that are out on the web, James has been advancing and working on the narratives of his female characters... we like the direction.

And so now we come to the end of the line, the last moments of 2013. It was hard picking the best features of our print edition this year, but we tried our best to narrow it down to some unique stories, from Asger Carlsen, Geoff McFetridge, Bruce Davidson, and Julie Nord, just to name a few of the standout art we covered. Today, we end with Todd James' exceptional cover story from the December 2013 issue, done by contributing editor Joey Garfield from the artist's studio in NYC... enjoy!

Something we are really excited about, and perfect timing with our Todd "REAS" James cover story in our December 2013 issue on newsstands now. If you follow James on Instagram, you have been seeing his really bugged out, cartoonish, psychedelic "Swords & Sorcery" drawings he has been doing, and now he will be having a ONE DAY zine/installation launch at The Newsstand in Brooklyn, at the Lorimer L/Metropolitan G subway stop from 3pm - 9pm, Saturday November 23rd. Be there. Go there.

We end the year on a high, high note, with a great December 2013 cover story on artist Todd "REAS" James. We have been scheduling a story with Todd for a bit now, and after the VMAs with the Miley bears, and another year where his exhibitions seems to get more and more stunning, we thought it was time to send contributing editor Joey Garfield out to NYC to catch up with REAS about pirates, girls, Mileys, vandals, and the evolution of his craft.
