Must See Painting Shows: June by New American Paintings

Summer is a time when many galleries choose to mount group shows, and beginning in July, dozens of such shows will open throughout the country. This month, however, solo exhibitions dominate the commercial gallery landscape…are there are a lot of good ones in the mix. Among them, are shows by more than two dozen New American Paintings alumi. I am particularly excited about John Zurier at Peter Blum Gallery, Garth Weiser at Casey Kaplan, and Ann Toebbe at Monya Rowe Gallery, all in New York City. And if you live in Chicago, be sure to catch a two-person show featuring 2012 MFA Annual artists Samantha Bittman and Gabriel Pionkowski that opens at Thomas Robertello Gallery on June 14th.

There have been many strong shows by mid-career and mature artists as of late. This month the trend continues. In Houston, one of Chicago’s best-known exports, Judy Ledgerwood, has new work up at Barbara Davis Gallery. Maggi Brown, a longtime presence in Boston’s art scene, is on view at Barbara Krakow Gallery. Los Angeles boasts stellar shows by John Wesley and Gary Simmons, at David Kordansky Gallery and Regen Projects, respectively. In New York City, Wolf Kahn at Ameringer McEnery Yohe, Phillip Taaffe at Luhring Augustine, Betty Woodman at Salon 94, and the aforementioned John Zurier are all well worth a visit.

Also in New Work City, Matthew Marks has dedicated three of his gallery spaces to the work of Ellsworth Kelly, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday. Age does not seem to have slowed Kelly down. The fourteen paintings and two sculptures on view were all executed within the past two years. After seven decades, Kelly continues to rigorously pursue line, color and form.  Enjoy the list! – Steven Zevitas, Publisher
