      Zach Person

      Pupil of modern blues and axe mania, Zach Person manhandles music. On April’s eponymous LP, rock’s unbridled energy (“All Shook Up”), Americana’s mysticism (“Wanna Fly”), country’s pickin’ twang (“Carolina”), and even hip-hop electronic beats (“Send Me Away”) inform the young Texan’s playful permutation of classic genres. Moving past a 2016 stint on American Idol, the young Texan continues a Tuesday residency at the tony digs of wine-n-dine sophisticates Geraldine’s.

      Northern-Southern: Baton

      This is a group show by relay, begun in July of 2020 as a method of socially distancing a community in the height of the pandemic: Artists took turns alone in the space, each adding to the exhibition. Now, as it nears its close, the exhibition resembles a community in which work converses and overlaps. With Adreon Henry, Vy Ngo, Dawn Okoro, Leon Alesi, Matt Steinke, Sev Coursen, Stella Alesi, and more.

But this Lagos-born artist also happens to have one of the most robust websites around, though you'll need a mighty big screen to get the best effect of his huge and colorful mixed-media creations and performance pieces.
