Back To The Digital Future: NAP Site Redesign

There have been a number of big days for New American Paintings over the past twenty years, but this may very well be the biggest. Today, we are pleased to present our new web site, which has been in top-secret development for a number of months. This site is both a capsule of the publication’s entire history, and, more importantly, the beachhead for our increasingly digital future.

Must See Painting Shows: June

Summer is a time when many galleries choose to mount group shows, and beginning in July, dozens of such shows will open throughout the country. This month, however, solo exhibitions dominate the commercial gallery landscape…are there are a lot of good ones in the mix. Among them, are shows by more than two dozen New American Paintings alumi. I am particularly excited about John Zurier at Peter Blum Gallery, Garth Weiser at Casey Kaplan, and Ann Toebbe at Monya Rowe Gallery, all in New York City. And if you live in Chicago, be sure to catch a two-person show featuring 2012 MFA Annual artists Samantha Bittman and Gabriel Pionkowski that opens at Thomas Robertello Gallery on June 14th.

MUST SEE PAINTING SHOWS: MARCH

More than four-dozen New American Paintings’ alumni are on view throughout the country this month. Two artists who were originally featured in MFA Annual issues from the early 2000s, Iona Rozeal Brown and William Cordova, and who have since garnered a great deal of attention, are on view in New York at Salon 94 and Sikkema Jenkins & Co., respectively. Two of our favorite emerging painters, Jered Sprecher and Eddie Martinez, can also be seen in New York this month.

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.

Must See Painting Shows: November

More than forty New American Paintings’ alumni are on view this month throughout the country. They range from mid-career painter, Trenton Doyle Hancock, to 2010 Hunter MFA grad Michael Hilsman, who is having his first solo exhibition this month at Louis B. James in New York City. The San Francisco area alone has six New American Paintings artists on view including Jim Gaylord at Gregory Lind and Conrad Ruiz at Jessica Silverman. If you love painting and live in San Francisco then you are lucky, as there are an extraordinary range of shows on view this month.

Must See Painting Shows: June

Summer is upon us. As is typical, many galleries around the country are mounting group exhibitions. There are a surprising number of first-rate solo exhibitions on view, many of which stretch into July. I am happy to see more than two-dozen New American Paintings’ alumni in the mix, including Todd Chilton at Feature, Inc. in New York City, who will be the cover artist for Issue #101.

In a coast to coast face off of contemporary masters, be sure not to miss Brice Marden’s elegant show at Matthew Marks Gallery in New York and Wayne Thiebaud’s exhibition at John Berggruen Gallery in San Francisco. For many, Marden is the greatest living abstractionist and Thiebaud the greatest living painter of objects.

Must See Painting Shows: May

May is traditionally the last month of the art world “season.” As summer looms, rhythms change and many galleries choose to mount group exhibitions instead of solo shows. It makes sense, after all, why try to promote an individual’s work when your clients are scattered to various vacation spots around the world? Fortunately, many galleries are ending the season with a bang and presenting A-level solo shows by artists of all career points.

Must See Painting Shows: April

More than twenty alumni of New American Paintings are featured in exhibitions around the country this month. If you live in New York City, be sure to catch Franklin Evans' exhibition at Sue Scott Gallery. Evans continues to push the medium of painting in a way that blurs the line between painting, sculpture and installation. In San Francisco, Kate Shepherd is currently on view at Anthony Meier Fine Arts. I have been a fan of Kate's work for many years. She has always exhibited an extraordinary sensitivity for form and space; her latest works continue this exploration with a variety of media.
