Must See Painting Shows: September by New American Paintings

Filed under: Must-Sees | Tags: , , , , ,

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.

As I have said before, one of the most exciting parts of my job is watching the careers of New American Paintings’ alumni take off. More than three dozen New American Paintings’ artists are on view in September throughout the country. They range from the well known figurative painter Susanna Coffey to one of the West’s best abstractionists, and best kept secrets, Robert Kelly, whose carefully considered paintings are on view this month at James Kelly Contemporary in Santa Fe. Two past cover artists, Shara Hughes and Devin Troy Strother, are both on view; both have had thriving careers since first appearing in New American Paintings.

Two of our favorite alumni, Angela Dufresne and Wendy White, both open exhibitions in New York this month. Dufresne’s intense paintings will be the focus of two simultaneous shows at CRG Gallery and Monya Rowe Gallery. White, whose new work will be featured at Leo Koenig Inc., was first featured in NAP at the beginning of her career. Over the past decade, her painting practice has evolved to embrace sculpture, text, and graffiti. She is now widely considered to be one of the preeminent artists of her generation. - Steven Zevitas, Editor/Publisher

Hello, I was wondering, for the list of NAP painters’ shows at the top, can you also include locations next to the gallery name? This would make it easy to know which shows I can easily get to and not. Thank you!
