Happy New Year to all of our readers. I am excited to present you with our first Must See list of the year. I am constantly getting feedback about the large number of shows that make it on the list each month from galleries located in New York City. There is no bias for the Big Apple, there are just that many exhibitions of note every month. This month, you will notice a large number from other parts of the country, including Denver, Seattle, and Kansas City. As always, we want to know who you feel should be on the list, so please give us your comments and recommendations. I try to be extremely thorough with this monthly review, but, needless to say, I am not aware of everything happening out there. If you think we’ve missed something, be sure to use the comments section. And, Let us know what you think of the shows below if you’ve visited them. – Steven Zevitas, Publisher
