The fall art season is in full swing, and there is an overwhelming amount of painting on display at galleries throughout the United States. I expanded my usual Must See list from ten to twelve exhibitions, but I could have easily selected more. As always, I primarily focused on emerging artists, although more established figures such as Susan Rothenberg and Lari Pittman are on the list with impressive new bodies of work.
Please visit the New American Painting/Blog for a more comprehensive list of must-see painting shows in July and August.
New American Paintings magazine is a juried exhibition-in-print and the largest series of artist competitions in the United States. Working with experienced curators, New American Paintings reviews the work of thousands of emerging artists each year. Forty artists are selected to appear in each bi-monthly edition, many of whom go on to receive substantial critical and commercial success. Additional content focuses on the medium of painting, those who influence its direction, and the role contemporary painting plays within the art world.Visit New American Paintings for more information or to subscribe.
