BY RUTH READER JUNE 28, 2011 GALO Magazine met Devin Westland at the Chelsea Hotel over the weekend to see his work presented at Art of Fashion’s pop-up gallery showing. Westland was one of nearly 40 artists to display his work in this month’s viewing. “That’s mine over there,” Westland said pointing to a vibrant landscape of fields set ablaze beneath a quiet blue sky. “What do you think?” he asked uneasily. Westland, a young 23-year-old, is still finding his footing as an artist.
What initially led BushwickBK to Eric Trosko’s studio this past Saturday was the promise of trapeze artists and acrobats. While that part of the show was cancelled, our dashed hopes were assuaged by Trosko’s musical act at Factory Fresh and studio exhibition.
