Must See Painting Shows: October by New American Paintings

Filed under: Art Market, Art World, Must-Sees | Tags: , ,

More than three dozen New American Paintings’ alumni are on view throughout the country this month, including six past cover artists: Kirk Hayes, Shara Hughes, Michael Krueger,  Devin Troy Strother, Elisa Johns and Kim McCarty, whose show at Morgan Lehman in New York opens in late October. You have until the end of this Saturday to see solo exhibitions by Ted Larsen in Philadelphia, Robert Kelly in Santa Fe, Gregory Euclide in Denver, and Marc Seguin, Mark Flood, and Erik Parker, all in New York City. Be sure to catch the just opened show of new paintings by Boston-native, Emily Eveleth, at Danese in New York.


NAP Covers: Michael Krueger, Kim McCarty, Elisa Johns, Shara Hughes, Kirk Hayes, Devin Troy Strother

I just had the chance to visit Chicago to check out Expo Chicago. The Windy City’s gallery scene may be small, but it packs a punch. Three Chicago imagists are on view: Gladys Nilsson, Robert Lostutter, and Roger Brown, whose show of major work at Zolla/Lieberman is a true must see. Shane Campbell has a strong exhibition of new works by John McAllister on view, and Kavi Gupta’s exhibition of new paintings by Clare Rojas was an extraordinary example of what can happen when an artist pushes themselves out of their comfort zone. In this show, Rojas breaks her pictorial language down to the bare minimum and offers paintings that, while recognizably hers, teeter on the edge of abstraction. I also want to give a big shout out to our old Chicago-friend Roy Boyd, whose gallery celebrates its 40th Anniversary this month. Enjoy the list. - Steven Zevitas, Publisher/Editor
