Nestled in DC’s Georgetown neighborhood, Margaret Heiner’s cozy gallery Heiner Contemporary, is quite perfect for a bustling college town, as it offers visitors young, fresh, and contemporary art.
Heiner has a keen eye for contemporary art, which at her home, serves as quite a compliment to her husband’s passion for Renaissance and Baroque art. Together, their home reflects their combined love and zeal for art, while also showcasing their different tastes and preferences. – Ellen C. Caldwell, Los Angeles Contributor

In about two weeks the South issue of New American Paintings, our 100th, will be hitting newsstands around the country and arriving in the mailboxes of our subscribers. It is a special issue for us, as Steven Zevitas, Editor/Publisher, mentions in his Editor’s Note. He describes the first issue and how it came to be, as well as the great accomplishments to date.
The juror for #100 was Michael Rooks, Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia. He sums up the issue well by stating that, “These artists…have much to say, in a variety of voices and from differing vantage points that reflect the multiplicity of approaches and pluralistic nature of contemporary art. They represent a cross-section of what the South has to offer, and I congratulate them all.”
A full list of participating artists, as well as a few more pictures of the issue, is after the jump!
To pre-order the issue for the newsstand rate of $20, please call 617-778-5265 x0. Better yet, subscribe today!

Dawn Black’s second solo show at Curator’s Office in Washington, D.C. doesn’t veer too far from her first go in 2009. Pulling characters from her ongoing Conceal Project, her current show, The Magic Foxhole, uses J.D. Sallinger’s unpublished short story of the same title — an absurdist tale about the follies of war — as a point of departure. Like her previous exhibition, Black’s own absurdist scenes subvert context in detailed ink, gouache and watercolor works on paper. And instead of narratives, the artist offers her nuanced understanding of the power roles and cues that result from masquerade and from our propensity for playing dress up. – Matthew Smith, D.C.
