Past Featured NAP Artists at VOLTA NY
Next week we're headed back to NYC for VOLTA and The Armory Show. Both fairs are open to the public starting on Thursday, March 7th, and open through Sunday, March 10th. I'm anxious to see how the new venue for VOLTA NY works out, although the raw space looks amazing (pictured below). I'll be taking plenty of photos so check back here on the 11th. I'll do my best to put you in the heart of the action in case you can't make it. - Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

New American Paintings #104 Sneak Peak
Within the next few weeks the Northeast issue of New American Paintings, #104, will be received by subscribers and newsstands across the country. Juror, Nina Gara Bozicnik, Assistant Curator, Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, NH, spent a week selecting the artists you see below. In her essay, Nina notes, "There is no one theme that unifies the works features in these pages, but rather a shared invitation to look, feel, and thinks your way through the dynamic terrain of painting today. I based my selections on the extent to which a painting engaged my eyes, mind, and heart. I hope they have a similarly provocative and inspiring effect on you."
Pick-up a copy and let us know what you think!
