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

Liz Markus at ZieherSmith by openstudiospress

Liz Markus is a huge Depeche Mode fan. (And it shows.) Are You Punk or New Wave?, an exhibition of eight large new paintings and the New York artist’s third solo show with ZieherSmith in Chelsea, is packed with references to both of the 1980s music genres as well as major art figures from the time, executed with both sharp wit and an attitude appropriate for the subject matter itself. We met at ZieherSmith last week to talk about her new work, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and ACT UP. —Evan J. Garza

EJG: Did you grow up listening to punk rock?
I did. I grew up listening to new wave music, and punk rock when I was in art school. So, late—like ten years later. That was a question people would ask you at school, “Are you punk or new wave?” I went to an all-girls prep school, so no one was really punk, but there was one new wave girl. And I remember asking her, “Are you punk or new wave?” and she was like, “New wave.”
