Must See Painting Shows: June by New American Paintings
June 7, 2012, 8:26 am
Filed under: Must-Sees | Tags: , , , , ,

Summer is upon us. As is typical, many galleries around the country are mounting group exhibitions. There are a surprising number of first-rate solo exhibitions on view, many of which stretch into July. I am happy to see more than two-dozen New American Paintings’ alumni in the mix, including Todd Chilton at Feature, Inc. in New York City, who will be the cover artist for Issue #101.

In a coast to coast face off of contemporary masters, be sure not to miss Brice Marden’s elegant show at Matthew Marks Gallery in New York and Wayne Thiebaud’s exhibition at John Berggruen Gallery in San Francisco. For many, Marden is the greatest living abstractionist and Thiebaud the greatest living painter of objects.

New York is a hotbed of well-conceived group exhibitions. Be sure to check out “Twisted Sister” at Dodge Gallery, which is co-curated by art world veteran, Janet Phelps and Gallery Owner, Kristen Dodge. In this raucous exhibition, Phelps brings together thirty outstanding emerging and mid-career female painters, including three of our favorites: Summer Wheat, Allison Schulnik and Molly Zuckerman-Hartung. Up in Chelsea, don’t miss “the Big Picture” at Sikkema, Jenkins & Co., in which, I am happy to see, long-time University of Iowa professor John Dilg is included. Also in Chelsea, “Everyday Abstract – Abstract Everyday” is yet another solid exhibition that, in one sense, explores the fluidity between painting and other media. Other group shows of note include “Painting in Space” and “Stretching Painting” which are both soon to open at Luhring Augustine and Galerie Lelong, respectively, and “Pothole” at Salon 94 on the Upper East Side.

Enjoy the list, and be sure to let us know whom you think we forgot in the comments section. – Steven Zevitas, Editor/Publisher
