It is a simple truth that in any given month, if you added up all of the available space in commercial galleries around the country, the amount dedicated to painting would dwarf that of all other media. The list that I have compiled consists of 40 United States’ based galleries that have a proclivity for painting. That is not to say that painting is the only medium that these galleries show; indeed, most represent artists producing work in a range of media. All of them, however, have shown a particular interest in the medium over an extended period of time, and all have stables of artists that are at least 50% painters.

The list is obviously far from comprehensive, and I consciously avoided blue chip galleries such as David Zwirner and Matthew Marks in favor of younger spaces. Some dealers I have personal relationships with, and others I know only casually. If you love the medium of painting, these are all spaces that you should be familiar with.

I hope that you find the list informative. Directly below is a list and after the jump you’ll find some brief comments and a list of noteable artists. Enjoy! – Steven Zevitas, President/Publisher, New American Paintings

Sam Gordon at Feature Inc by New American Paintings
May 15, 2012, 8:20 am
Filed under: New York, Review | Tags: , , ,

Sam Gordon’s abstraction poses a photographer’s take on his show title, Trompe L’Oeil (On view at Feature Inc. through May 26th). A painter, photographer, and videographer, Gordon collects and weaves bits of the outside world, in his paintings of dust on mirrors and acrylic and bleach patterns on ratty quilts. Rather than the scrupulously reductive process of someone like Tony Matelli, though, Gordon’s spontaneity and raw materials feel like the naked cruise you get from a Wendy White or Terry Winters, or the anything-goes formalism of early experimental film. Each canvas forms a moving tessellation: in Air Mail, handkerchiefs and scraps of pants form a grid of rectangles, over which Gordon paints a tunnel of air mail envelope borders. On another, concentric loops of chains form negative space in a crusty layer of studio sweepings (staples, dust, little bits of paper). – Whitney Kimball, New York City Contributor

Andrew Masullo at Feature Inc. (VIDEO) by New American Paintings

We are pleased to present another video “gallery visit” from James Kalm, aka the painter Loren Munk. In this installment, James visits the 2010 Feature Inc. exhibition of Andrew Masullo’s work in New York’s Lower East Side. Andrew has had a 25+ year career making paintings that are notable for their intimate scale and and sophisticated use of color and form. Largely ignoring the trends and fads that have washed over the art world in the past two decades, Andrew has steadfastly produced a highly personal body of work that now seems more relevant than ever. Don’t miss the shout-out from New York-based art critic Jerry Saltz at 7:48, and if you want to see more images, please check out the current exhibition of Andrew’s work at Steven Zevitas Gallery in Boston.
