Body, Landscape, Space: Top Ten Painting Shows in the U.S.

After surveying March exhibitions at more than 300 galleries throughout the United States, two things became clear: 1) Painting still holds a central place in the exhibition programming of most galleries and 2) it is a medium that never seems to lose its vitality. While some of the great contemporary masters of painting are on view this month--Ellsworth Kelly and Ed Ruscha among them--I focused my attention on artists that are lesser known, yet worthy of attention. These ten artists each, in their own way, continue to push painting forward, while actively embracing what has come before them.
