New American Paintings Northeast Competition

Since New American Paintings’ inception, we have collaborated with dozens of curators from throughout the country in our ongoing review of American painters. In fact, with the exception of the legendary art dealer Ivan Karp, every past juror has been a curator by trade. Over the years, many artists and subscribers have suggested to me that varying juror backgrounds would strengthen the publication. I have been listening, and I am pleased to announce that for the first time ever, an artist, Michelle Grabner, is at the helm of an issue of New American Paintings.
