2018 North American Handmade Bicycle Show Ramps Up

New sponsors and non-profit partner announced as NAHBS makes its debut in New England February 16th – 18th at the Connecticut Convention Center


The North American Handmade Bicycle Sow, the world’s largest show for custom-built bicycles, is gearing up for its 2018 show, taking place in Hartford, CT February 16th– 18th at the Connecticut Convention Center.  The annual 3-day event, which changes venues each year, is being held in New England for the first time in the show’s 14-year history.


While NAHBS provides an interactive forum for frame builders and cycling enthusiasts to come together to share new products, ideas, and support, the artistry and craftsman of the builders transcends cycling: anyone who appreciates artisanship and craftsmanship will enjoy the show.  With a robust public attendance anticipated and a vibrant collection of handmade bicycles from a wide array of exhibitors — including international companies hailing from Russia, UK, Italy, Australia, Ireland, and Canada, giving attendees the chance to see brands they might not otherwise ever see — NAHBS 2018 is shaping up to be one for the record books.


“New England is such a bike crazy region. We’re elated to finally have the opportunity to bring the show to the area and be a gathering place for New England’s bicycle industry,” says Don Walker, Founder and President of NAHBS. “With the great location, all-star exhibitor line up, and amazing partnerships and events in the works, we think 2018 is going to be one for the record books.”


NAHBS just announced Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program as its official charity partner for the upcoming show. With its mission to better the lives of youth and young adults through the sport of cycling, CCAP provides a variety of amazing opportunities including middle and high school cycling clubs, parks and recreation programs, youth travel teams, and youth events.


“We’re very proud to be working with NAHBS in Hartford and to continue to bring cycling to the forefront in Connecticut,” says David Hoyle, CCAP’s Executive Director. “NAHBS is a special opportunity for cyclists and families across Connecticut to experience the nation’s most beautiful and unique aspects of cycling culture, right here in our state’s capital.”

Ryan Wallace ignites activity from absence. His projects are realized through continuous cycles of creation, destruction, flattening, and reconstructing. Wallace’s work is self-sustaining, self-perpetuating, and self-determined in a way that cultivates organic development. In his recent paintings, Wallace takes inspiration from light refractions cast upon architectural interiors emanating from shimmering elements of his floor installations. These fleeting shapes are cut and rendered into controlled compositions, memorializing an unexpected byproduct of a previous artwork. In these works, the ephemeral becomes tangible while finding purpose as yet another element in the continuous mapping of Wallace’s terrain.

Exhibition A is proud to present Lenakaeia, a series of 20 unique works on archival pigment print, which emphasize the integrality of interdisciplinary media to Wallace’s painting practice. Utilizing our digital print as his base, Wallace reworked the two-dimensional pieces to reflect his characteristic materiality. Summoned from a process of simultaneous and continual removal and creation, as in his paintings, shapes were cut from the paper and replaced with contrasting materials from his studio. His painting materials have been seamed into the edition, creating a variety of surface sheen and textured impasto across the picture plane.


Each piece is unique and features intentional variants as created by the artist.

Ryan Wallace is currently in a two-person show with John Riepenhoff at the Elaine de Kooning House (East Hampton) and the group show, Brass Tacks, at Anat Ebgi Gallery (Los Angeles). He will open a show with Rosy Keyser, curated by Jaime DeSimone, at the Institute of Contemporary Art at MECA (Portland) in January 2018. Selected solo exhibitions include Romer Young Gallery (San Francisco), Susan Inglett Gallery (New York), 56 Henry (New York), Cooper Cole (Toronto). Recent group exhibitions include, Marjorie Barrick Museum, University of Nevada (Las Vegas), Christian Larsen (Stockholm) and Rachel Uffner Gallery (New York). He has appeared in ArtForum, Art in America, New York Magazine, Blouin Modern Painters, San Francisco Chronicle, Cultured Magazine, Artinfo, Hunted Projects, Deep Color, and Time Out New York. Wallace is in the permanent collection of Museum of Modern Art (New York), Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco), US Department of the Treasury (Washington DC), Watermill Center (Watermill, NY), Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Harvard Business School (Cambridge, MA), RISD Museum (Providence), Marjorie Barick Museum of Art at University of Las Vegas and Progressive (Cleveland). Ryan Wallace co-owns and operates Halsey McKay Gallery in East Hampton. He was born in 1977 (New York, NY) and currently lives and works between Brooklyn and East Hampton, NY.
