Like the Dickens novel it’s titled after, the show explores the aftermath of a number of great fallen expectations: dichotomous images of masculinity, the role of male heroes past and present, and the art of nostalgic remembrance. Rathman’s paintings may be subdued in color, but not in content. I spoke with him about the show and his musings on capturing momentum and creating memories. —Ellen Caldwell, LA contributor

It’s March, which means art fairs and new spring openings. The snow is melting (somewhat) and it’s time to hit the pavement to see some new work. The editorial staff at New American Paintings have put together a list of more than 40 of the top painting exhibitions on view at private galleries across the country this month—from New York to Los Angeles, Chicago to Miami, and more—including more than a dozen shows from artists previously included in New American Paintings and featuring dozens of notable and not-to-be-missed shows from across the country.
