I’ve heard so much about Con Artist Gallery that eventually I had to stop by to see what the fuzz is all about. The opening for “Brand New Again” was last Thursday and by the time I got there, the place was already packed.  The show was new work by new members of the collective which included an installation, painting, photography and animation.Participating artists include: Jamie Martinez, John Arzayus, Lisa Larsson, Angela Viens, Samantha Silver, Meghan Borah, Alexander Soreff, Patrick Grzelewski, Daniel Dawson, Alex Soreff and Polet Guzman
