We are currently putting together the Pacific Coast issue (NAP #97). Anne Ellegood, Senior Curator, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, did a terrific job selected 40 artists from over 1,000 that applied to the competition. You’ll have to wait to find out who she selected from the region. But, when we asked her what other painters she would recommend to our readers, she names quite a few. So, check them out after the jump! And look for the Pacific Coast issue on the newsstands in December.

It’s time to break out the sunscreen and the summer group shows (and there’s no shortage of each). Our editorial staff have put together our Summer Must-See list for July and August, our guide to more than 50 of the best contemporary painting exhibitions in the country, including dozens of notable and not-to-be-missed shows by masters like De Kooning and serious emerging talent like Matt Connors, Lesley Vance, Leidy Churchman, Chris Johanson, and more. Also included are our picks for summer shows by artists previously featured in New American Paintings.
From L.A. to Chicago, Houston to New York and back, our guide includes exhibitions in every corner of the country. Images and listings after the jump!

Through the course of a year, we see a lot of work. After reviewing thousands of artists annually through the New American Paintings jurying process, visiting hundreds of private gallery exhibitions and museum shows, attending major art fairs, and doing countless studio visits across the country, the editorial staff at NAP have put together a shortlist of artists that really stood out from the pack last year. These are the artists to watch in 2011.
2010 was an exciting year for contemporary painting, from a painting-heavy Whitney Biennial, to stand-out works in MoMA PS1‘s Greater New York, to huge showings at art fairs like NADA and Art Basel Miami Beach, and with each exhibition a new way of thinking about the medium itself. President and publisher of New American Paintings, Steven Zevitas, and I have each put together a list of 11 artists to look out for this year, which puts the total at 22 painters to watch! So keep your eyes peeled. Pics (and picks) after the jump. —Evan J. Garza, Editor-at-Large
