I’m not gonna say that Dallas has a “burgeoning art scene.” It’s been here and it’s full of artists who are not tied to a specific idea of what it is like to exist in a cultural mecca. There is a shit ton of space: warehouses are being flipped into DIY studios, abandoned buildings are being utilized for performances and pop up group shows and there is a re-introduction of artist run galleries and raw experimental spaces. Top notch venues such as Dallas’ Power Station and Forth Worth Contemporary Arts are bringing in international artists and sparking much needed conversations as well. Through a series of articles entitled MAKING [in] DALLAS, I will introduce you to key venues, artists, organizers and overall bad asses in an effort to familiarize you with the rebels of our community. We want to get to know you. - Arthur Peña, Dallas 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.
