The winter is almost gone, and despite some last-minute snow for those of us in the Northeast, things are warming up across the country. With that in mind, here are our editorial staff picks for the Must-See Painting Shows for the month of April, including more than 50 exhibitions throughout the 50 states.

Our list is broken down by exhibitions by New American Paintings alums (from Chris Ballantyne to Nancy White), and notable, not to be missed shows across the country from artists like Kenneth Noland, Ellsworth Kelly, and Joseph Marioni.

So throw on your opened-toed sandals if you’re in LA, or your snow boots if you’re in Boston, and hit that concrete. The spring season is here let’s hope it brings the heat.
