As April gears up, I’m excited about quite a number of new show openings. From Lou Beach’s chaotic collages of Riot Rumphaus to new work by Kai Samuels-Davis, inspired by the creative process itself, I find something essential about viewing finished works by other artists. Seeing how other people overcome blocks and challenges or combine surprising media, I draw parallels and learn from the new. Every experience moves me forward. Hope to see you there.
