Within the next few weeks the Pacific Coast issue of New American Paintings, #103, will be received by subscribers and newsstands across the country. Juror, Monica Ramirez-Montagut, Senior Curator at the San Jose Museum of Art, carefully selected the artists you see below. In her essay, Monica notes, “The selection for New American Paintings makes evident the vitality and vibrancy of paintings, and  the impossibility of narrowing down the practice to one trend or style. Painting continues to be a sublime, visceral, fully fleshed, colorful, and witty facilitator of self-expression.”

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

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

NAP #100 Sneak Peek by New American Paintings

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!
