March Madness is here, and that can only mean one thing: art fairs. (And college basketball, I suppose.) As we at New American Paintings excitedly head to New York for The Armory Show, VOLTA, Pulse and the fairs this week, we're reminded of how much fun we had at Art Los Angeles Contemporary recently. We teamed up with the talented Graham Kolbeins of Future Shipwreck—who last filmed Iva Gueorguieva in her studio—to interview dealers at Art LA and bounce from booth to shining booth. The result is a candid crop of gallerists revealing details about the work they're exhibiting, and never-ending throngs of art-hungry visitors.

Dealers and featured artists include:
David Kordansky Gallery (LA): Richard Jackson
Camilo Alvarez
(samsøn, Boston): Nicole Cherubini
Jessica Silverman (Silverman Gallery, SF): Luke Butler, Shannon Finley
Matt Distel & John Knuth (Country Club, LA): Ryan McGinness
Wendy Yao (Ooga Booga, LA):  Luke Fishbeck (Lucky Dragons)
Angles Gallery (LA): Iva Gueorguieva
Eric Charest-Weinberg (Charest-Weinberg Gallery, Miami): Aaron Spangler
Katharine Mulherin (Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects, Toronto): Mike Bayne
Susanne Vielmetter
(LA): Olga Koumoundouros, Andrea Bowers
Allegra LaViola Gallery (New York): Jennifer Catron & Paul Outlaw
