Shara Hughes (NAP #58) deserves our total, undivided attention when experiencing her works. There is little static or passive about the furiously colorful interiors and environments constituting See Me Seeing Me, her debut solo exhibition at American Contemporary. Are you ready to give your oculars a calisthenic workout? Dive in. — Brian Fee, Austin contributor

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

An oasis of kicked-up color blooms in the Hill Country, focused in the Wild Beasts exhibition at Champion Contemporary. While New York City’s museums have, of late, treated “painterly” and “young” as extreme opposites — the recently closed video-imbued exhibitions by Cory Arcangel (Pro Tools at the Whitney) and Ryan Trecartin (Any Ever at PS1) come to mind — some of the city’s talent prove otherwise. After meeting Champion’s director Sonia Dutton this past March, Brooklyn-based painter Ryan Schneider (NAP #74) assembled a potent group of young artists reveling in color and canvas and undaunted by formalism. – Brian Fee, Austin Contributor
