Must See Painting Shows: April by New American Paintings
April 6, 2012, 8:45 am
Filed under: Must-Sees | Tags: , ,

More than twenty alumni of New American Paintings are featured in exhibitions around the country this month. If you live in New York City, be sure to catch Franklin Evans’ exhibition at Sue Scott Gallery. Evans continues to push the medium of painting in a way that blurs the line between painting, sculpture and installation. In San Francisco, Kate Shepherd is currently on view at Anthony Meier Fine Arts. I have been a fan of Kate’s work for many years. She has always exhibited an extraordinary sensitivity for form and space; her latest works continue this exploration with a variety of media.

As always, New York City has a number of notable shows. Two mid-career painters, Dan Walsh and Jacqueline Humphries, currently have very strong exhibitions on view. There may not be as many galleries in Los Angeles, but painting looks very good there this month. Emerging artists Daniel Cummings and Jeanette Mundt are both must-sees, and Jonas Wood’s show at David Kordansky is truly stunning.
