The sun is out, the air is cool, and the new shows are getting hot. New York Gallery Week is in full swing, and private galleries across the country are giving it all they’ve got before collectors and gallery-goers disappear for the summer. Our editorial staff have put together our monthly Must-See list for the month of May, our guide to more than 50 of the best contemporary painting exhibitions in the country, including 15 shows of artists previously featured in New American Paintings and dozens of notable and not-to-be-missed shows across the USA. 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!
