What started as an exhibition space in the curator’s brother’s North Little Rock garage has become an art-world It Thing. Haynes Riley has a knack for spotting up-and-coming talent, and though you may not be able to attend all of Good Weather’s shows—Haynes is often setting up shop in Mexico City, Miami, Portland, etc.—he’s definitely your go-to for the avant garde.
