MUST SEE PAINTING SHOWS: APRIL

April is another strong month for painting around the US, and the recent trend of solid shows by mid-career artists continues. Be sure to catch veteran painter McArthur Binnion’s first solo at Kavi Gupta in Chicago. Across town at Zolla/Lieberman, another Chicago-based artist, Phyllis Bramson, presents a new group of her hallucinatory works. In Los Angeles, emerging artist Rashid Johnson has organized a finely tuned exhibition of works by legendary Washington School painter, Sam Gilliam. Two artists who are firmly on my “completely under-recognized” list, New Orleans’ native, Jim Richard, and long-time University of Iowa Professor, John Dilg, can be seen at Inman Gallery in Houston and Regina Rex in Queens, NY, respectively.

Must See Painting Shows: February

It is, once again, a very strong month for New American Paintings’ alumni with close to thirty solo exhibitions on view around the country. Some of these artists are now well established, such as Amy Cutler, others are early in their careers, such as Ellen Lesperance, who is currently exhibiting her intricate works on paper and objects at Ambach & Rice in Los Angeles.

13 to Watch in 2013: NAP Publisher’s Picks

There is always a lot happening in the super charged art world of the 21st-Century, and I am constantly amazed by the number of new artists who seem to emerge each year. Some would say that the cart is driving the horse - that the machine that is the contemporary art world demands new artists at an ever-increasing, and unhealthy rate. I understand where the cynical view comes from, but I choose to be a bit more sanguine about the situation. After all, more artists than ever now have a chance to support themselves through their creative efforts, and that is certainly not a bad thing.
