Heart to Art: Thao Votang and Brian Willey of Tiny Park (Part I)

Living half a block from West Chelsea's gallery scene equalled art overload for this former New York City resident. I figured I wouldn't find the same convenience in Austin, TX...until I discovered the adorable apartment gallery Tiny Park, within walking distance of my flat. Tiny Park's petite size belied its creative and compelling exhibitions, organized by owners Brian Willey and Thao Votang. Less than a year after opening their doors to the public, Tiny Park moved to a proper commercial space on Austin's east side. I spoke with Willey and Votang about their plans for the new, not-so-Tiny Park. — Brian Fee, Austin contributor

40 Galleries You Should Know if You Love Paint

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.

New American Paintings Remembers Ivan Karp

Legendary New York art dealer, Ivan Karp, has passed away at age 86. Ivan has the distinction of being the only gallerist to ever juror an edition of New American Paintings – all other jurors have been curators. He did so in early 1997, and the result was Issue #10, which is the only issue we ever published that was solely dedicated to New York City (the city subsequently became a part of our annual Northeast issue). Ivan is also the only juror that I have sat with through the entire jurying process; it was a long, cigar-smoke filled afternoon in the offices of his SOHO-based gallery, O.K. Harris Works of Art, that I will never forget.

Abstraction in the Forecast; Gabriel Pionkowski at New Yorks Galerie Lelong

New American Paintings can work in mysterious ways. When Lisa Freiman, Senior Curator and Chair of the Department of Contemporary Art at the Indianapolis Museum if Art, completed the jurying of our 2012 Midwest Competition, the results of which will be published in August as Issue #102, we had a discussion about the overwhelming amount of abstraction in the applicant pool; indeed, the book will strongly reflect this.

Culver City Art District Gallery Guide and ZList

Over the past few years we have come across Zach Peabody, an artist and art observer, at the various art fairs throughout the country. Usually when we find him, he's got his camera pointed at the walls of the fair, documenting as much art as he can. When asked what he does with the photos, he mentioned that he puts the thousands of photographs on Facebook to stimulate conversation about the contemporary art world.
