Must See Paintings Shows: July/August by New American Paintings

The heat has been turned way up on the East Cost, which is all the more reason to duck into a few galleries as you trudge through the city. As is typical for the summer months, a lot of galleries have mounted group exhibitions, and many of them focus on painting.

In New York City, be sure to see: “The Big Picture” at Sikkema Jenkins (featuring NAP alums John Dilg and David Schutter; “Breed” at Greenberg Van Doren Gallery (featuring NAP alum Eddie Martinez); “Stretching Painting” at Galerie Lelong (featuring NAP alums Sarah Cain, Kate Shepherd, and emerging Chicago-based artist, Gabriel Pionkowski); “Contemporary Watercolor” at Morgan Lehman (featuring NAP alums Nina Bovasso, Sarah Cain, Ellen Lesperance and Kim McCarty); “Yeah we are friends and shit” at Josee Bienvenu Gallery (featuring NAP alums Kirk Hayes and Devin Troy Strother); “Stand still like a hummingbird” at David Zwirner (featuring NAP alum Ruth Laskey); “Everyday Abstract – Abstract Everyday” at James Cohan Gallery; “Painting in Space” at Luhring Augustine; “Context Message” at Zach Feuer; “Hot Tub Time Machine at Canada; and “Braman, Buren, Falls, Heilmann, Louis, Thurman” at Eleven Rivington. I know…that is a lot. But they are all well worth a visit.

Elsewhere around the country there are plenty of group shows to be found, but, there are also a number of strong solo exhibitions. Iva Gueorguieva continues to gain a lot of attention, and with her first show at Vielmetter in Los Angeles is to continue that trend. Emerging Texas artist, Bethany Johnson, produces exquisite ink on paper work that can be seen at Houston’s Moody Gallery this month. In San Francisco, you still have a few days to check out Patrick Wilson’s abstract paintings at Marx & Zavattero.

I am a sucker for artists who have produced a significant body of work over an extended period of time and have, for whatever, not gotten the attention they deserve. At 91 years of age, Northwest-based artist Gaylen Hansen, is high on my list of “most under recognized” painters. Sure, he had a Seattle Art Museum retrospective a few years ago, but outside of that city he is an virtually unknown quantity. This month, his long time dealer, Linda Hodge, will present an exhibition of recent work that is a true Must See. I want to personally congratulate Gaylen on decades of superb work.

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