New American Paintings Past Featured Artists In Miami

Visiting the art fairs throughout the year is exciting because we see so many familiar names. A majority of artists that have appeared in New American Paintings have gone on to have extremely successful careers. One barometer of success is making an appearance at one of the fairs in Miami. We already mentioned our favorite fairs, well now we have compiled a list of artists that have been in our publication and will appear in a Miami art fair this year. It's overwhelming to be reminded of how many amazing artists that we have worked with in the past. We hope you take note and look for their work.

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

I recently went back home to Kansas City and documented my favorite spots to see contemporary art while visiting. This past weekend I traveled west again, this time to Fort Worth, Texas. My trip was short so right after landing I drove directly to the the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. I had heard great things about the building and collection, both of which ended up meeting expectations.

Emerging Again: D.C.’s (e)merge Goes Into Its Second Year

Last year’s preview night at (e)merge was a big, ruckus party. Amidst the large crowds it was often difficult to navigate the hallways between exhibitors, and the wait for the elevators always seemed impossibly long. While it may have been loads of fun for those of us sipping PBRs by the pool, perusing and buying artwork that evening seemed to require a bit more resolve and determination.

I Heart KC Art

That's right, there is great art in Kansas City. Let me start by saying that I am no stranger to the region. I grew up in Kansas (leaving off the "City" on purpose, for those sticklers for geography), and since leaving it behind for college 15 years ago, a lot has changed. For example, the suburbs have grown beyond belief, the downtown area is no longer a place you go to get shot, and you can eat excellent food that isn't BBQ. Although I don't know why you would do the latter. But more importantly to you, a reader of this blog and I assume an art lover, KC has a robust and continually growing art scene. I only got a taste during my recent visit, but figured there was more than enough to share.

Artfully Politicking

With the upcoming presidential election, and the first round of debates this evening, we are all braced for the hard and heavy domestic and international topics that will be debated in the coming weeks.  But as an arts writer and arts lover, I wanted to turn to what’s sometimes seen as the "softer" side of politics, as its place and importance is often underestimated.  I want to take a moment to look at some of the artistic movements surrounding the current president. - Ellen C.

Expo Chicago Wrap-Up: Part One

New American Paintings headed to the Windy City over the weekend to check out Expo Chicago, which was, in effect, an attempted reboot of Art Chicago in its glory days. Art Chicago was the first art fair that NAP publisher/editor, Steven Zevitas, ever attended. That was 17 years ago...
