If you are in Chicago this weekend, I encourage you to check out the NEXT Art Fair (alongside Art Chicago) for some very unique and cerebral work. Some of my favorites:

Image above: "Long Cold Winter" by Cody Hudson, represented by the Andrew Rafacz Gallery.

Barry Underwood's portfolio of "scenes".

Adriane Herman's "Necco Census" - a silkscreen print with scratch & sniff fragrances of the Necco candy flavors!

Steven Zevitas Gallery in Boston, specifically artist Chris Ballantyne.

Danielle Giudici Wallis's "sculptors" - love the brick and tree chairs!

I plan on heading back this weekend and will share more...
