It’s February now, which means plenty of snow and plenty of new shows opening this month. The editorial staff at New American Paintings have put together a list of more than 65 of the top painting exhibitions on view at private galleries across the country in February—from New York to Los Angeles, Houston to Chicago, Atlanta, and more—including more than a dozen shows from artists previously included in New American Paintings and featuring more than 50 notable and not-to-be-missed shows from across the country.
