Within the next few weeks the Midwest issue of New American Paintings, #101, will be received by subscribers and newsstands across the country.

*New American Paintings would like to apologize for a printed error in issue #101 which stated that Garry Noland had a solo exhibition at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in 2010. This was an internal error and should not have been listed on his resume. Further, we would like to point out that Mr. Noland received a BA from the University of Missouri, not a BFA.
