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.

Must See Painting Shows: September

It is September and the art world has come back to life. Commercial galleries around the country are busy putting final touches on soon to open exhibitions. Not surprisingly, many are opening their seasons with shows by significant artists. In New York, Gerhard Richter and James Rosenquist open next week at Marian Goodman and Acquavella Galleries, respectively. In Chicago, original Hairy Who member Gladys Nilsson presents new work at Jean Albano Gallery. All the way across the country in Los Angeles, be sure to catch an exhibition of recent work by Jim Dine at Jonathan Novak Contemporary Art that has already opened.

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 PAINTINGS SHOWS: FEBRUARY

One of the best parts of my job is getting to see the careers of artists that we have worked with take off. Artists such as James Siena, Amy Cutler and Matthew Day Jackson were all featured in New American Paintings long before they reached the international spotlight. This month is not only an extraordinary month for the medium of painting at galleries around the country, it is a particularly strong month for New American Paintings’ alumni. No fewer than twenty artists featured in past, or upcoming editions, have their work on view in February. Two of my favorites, Summer Wheat and Benjamin Degen, will be featured in the soon to be released 2012 Northeast Edition (#98).
