Currently on view at Haven Gallery in Northport, New York is artist Travis Louie’s fantastic solo exhibition, “Animals That I’ve Known.”
The Gallery explains, “From the scaly to the furry, each sitter is pictured in the finest attire and millinery styles of the Victorian era. Posed and executed in a soft application of medium, emulating tintypes or cabinet cards, each portrait is representative of that individual’s profession and ambition; attributes that define their individuality yet immerse them purposefully in a bustling society. Humor is laced with weighty undertones as Louie offers us notions of the other in curiously engaging poses and anthropomorphic depictions of unhuman species, both beckoning us to learn more while simultaneously finding familiarity and friendship. Inspiration for these visuals go beyond Victorian aesthetics and tap into Louie’s love of film noir, atomic age sci-fi stories and the quirks and particularities of people he has encountered throughout his life.”
The exhibition will be on view until June 16th, 2019 and should definitely be sought out if in the area.
Trimborn celebrates the seasons with each canvas, showcasing their
beauty with scenes of unmatched serenity and solitude. Le Chant de la Terre, or The Song of the Earth in English, is a particularly apropos title for Trimborn’s
show as he has previously used music in an analogy to describe his commitment to honestly portraying
nature: “the represented elements compose atmospheres whose impression I seek to accurately
convey, like the musician, who accurately follows his sheet music.” Indeed, the artist’s diligent deference
to the graceful repose of his muse’s forests, fields, and waterways has led some to confuse his paintings
with photographs. But Trimborn’s work beckons his audience with a depth irreplaceable by a printed

Edwin Ushiro and The People’s Printshop launches you off into summer with this fantastic reproduction of Ushiro’s painting “One More Second You are About to Gain” as a limited edition print. This print carefully reproduces a painting from Ushiro’s 2018 solo exhibition at Giant Robot’s GR2 Gallery which sold out quickly.

Measuring 12″x18″ inches, this print is produced with archival pigments on Epson cold press art paper, limited to an edition of 30, signed and numbered in white ink and priced at $50 each.
Available for purchase online on May 16, 2019 at 1pm PST. At that time, you may place your order at The People’s Printshop.
From the Gallery: “Today, we live in a world of dizzying speed, exponential complexity, and ruthless competition. As adults, our imagination is intact, but boundaries prevent us from going beyond our rational minds. We set parameters, which if stepped over, would let us recapture the freedom and wonder of childhood creativity. In Craola’s newest exhibition, the artist invites ‘The Outside’ world into the inner world of his imagination, where every character represents a new possibility, and every adventure inspires a rediscovery of innocence and possibility.”
The exhibition will be on view until June 15th, 2019. If you’re in the area, definitely stop by.
Aron’s paintings depict enigmatic figures traversing desolate environments. Both the people and the places seem familiar, yet oddly out of place. Wiesenfeld says of his work, “they are refugees, pilgrims and wanderers trying to get to the other side of a river that is forever out of reach. I think they are answering a call that is not consciously understandable but resonates somewhere inside of them. It draws them to a place that they forgot they knew about, something like a return to Eden.”
The exhibition will be on view until May 26th and should be sought out if in the area.
