Tracy Stuckey at Visions West Gallery

Artist Tracy Stuckey (NAP #106) sets reality and romanticism on a collision course in his paintings of icons, legends, and heroes of the American West. In his recent work, Stuckey assumes the role of storyteller, crafting his tall tales of equal parts humor, theatricality, fiction, and reality. The artist’s “refashioned fables” put a satirical spin on mythic views of this often-romanticized region and stand as commentaries on the West today. - Karen Brooks, Guest Contributor

NAP Southern Issue (#106) Sneak Peek

The New American Paintings, Southern Issue, #106, is expected to hit newsstands across the US sometime in the next few weeks. Miranda Lash, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, New Orleans Museum of Art, juried the competition. Publisher Steven Zevitas notes in his Editor's Note, "Miranda has made quite a splasjh in New Orleans since her arrival in 2008, having already organized fifteen exhibitions at NOMA. Her selections for this issue are broad, and include a few New Orleans favorites such as Jim Richard and Luis Cruz Azaceta. In her essay, Lash offers keen insights into the conceptual and aesthetic trens she detects in contemporary art from the south." So pick up a copy and see her selections!
