New York Instances Model Journal praises North Little Rock Artwork Gallery

Some North Little Rock art galleries in good weather are among the 12 selected in a June 16 article in the New York Times Style Magazine.

Goodweather, directed by Haynes Riley and his sister Erin, has participated in galleries in San Francisco, New Orleans, Miami, Detroit, and the magazine’s “12 Galleries Not in New York or Los Angeles”. Is posted. Art edition 2021 (arkansasonline.com/627papertrails/).

Reporter John Chiaverina writes, “There are many interesting and important American art spaces across the city with a 1 percent seasonal playground.”

Well that’s right.

Riley, an artist and curator who taught in Minneapolis and Detroit, founded Good Weather in 2011 and turned the garage of her brother Zacks’ home in the Lakewood neighborhood of North Little Rock into a gallery.

Erin boarded in 2015 and Goodweather expanded to Chicago in 2019, where the Hunter Brothers live. The gallery shows works by the sculptor Pay Suan Wang and the Brooklyn-based artist Laque Ford. In September, Good Weather will take place on the List Art Fair Basel in Switzerland in the Chinese gallery A Thousand Plateaus Art Space.

“It’s kind of the best alternative show,” says Riley. “We entered the list in 2019. That was a sign of approval. “

And while they lay the groundwork for collectors around the world, they remain firmly anchored in North Little Rock.

“I come from a large family and my parents grew up in Lakewood. We lived in Lakewood, ”says Riley. “North Little Rock has shaped me. I am proud and happy to be here. Staying home in North Little Rock is one way to be with my family and relationship. It’s kind of respect. “

Goodweather’s current project is “Rayman”, Little Rock Hunter Foster’s first solo show.

Foster’s work (a thin canvas wrapped around a painted core) is on view from Saturday noon until 3:00 p.m. through July 10 at Funland Drive in Burns Park, North Little Rock, which was once part of a prison. It is on display near Pavilion 8. Artforum.com calls this show a “must-see”.
