NAP #102 Sneak Peek by New American Paintings

Within the next few weeks the West issue of New American Paintings, #102, will be received by subscribers and newsstands across the country. Juror, Bill Arning, Director of Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, TX, spent quite a bit of time making the selections you see below. But he also reassures us in his essay that, “There were a lot of ‘almosts’ this round, many of whom could have made the cut, and while that usually is small consolation to those whose friends, dealers, and collectors don’t see them on these pages, it should be comforting to know that this is only the tip of the iceberg of new scintillating artworks coming your way at a gallery, museum, or alternative space near you.”

We hope you will pick-up a copy and let us know what you think!

You can order this issue online or by calling 617-778-5265 ext.0

After the jump see a full list of the artists selected for the NAP #102 and few sneak peek photos!
