Last Rites Gallery has made a name for itself in the new contemporary art scene as New York’s “dark arts” gallery. Over the weekend, founder Paul Booth made a departure from the gallery’s taste for darker side of Surrealism with his new venture, Booth Gallery. The gallery is located at the same address as Last Rites in New York, which has moved to the second floor mezzanine gallery, where it will showcase works by international artists working in a variety of media and figurative styles. Many of them are featured in Booth Gallery’s inaugural group exhibition, “Second Sight”: Chad Wys, Jesse Draxler, Ekaterina Panikanova, Ted Lawson, Jade Townsend, Johan Barrios, Mike Cockrill, Ryan Hewett, and Todd Lim.
