New Gallery NYC: LAST RITES
This month marked the opening of the new art gallery in New York, Last Rites. Their grand opening was nothing short of grand, with a group exhibitions with artists such as Matthew Bone, Michael Hussar, HR Giger, John John Jesse, Travis Louie, Dan Quintana, David Stoupakis, Chet Zar and more.
The space looks amazing due to the collaborative effort between Genevive Zacconi -gallery director, and Paul Booth- the gallery owner, the two of them have opened the gallery with the idea to exhibit the works of artists that explore the darker side of their imagination, a growing genre that sometimes can be overlooked.
I love the dark surrealist work from these artists and the many emotions it sparks up inside you when seeing it. I really hope this gallery stays open for a long time to come! Send your support, view the online store and check out the current exhibition which closes on the 28th of April.
