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!

13 to Watch in 2013: NAP Publisher’s Picks

There is always a lot happening in the super charged art world of the 21st-Century, and I am constantly amazed by the number of new artists who seem to emerge each year. Some would say that the cart is driving the horse - that the machine that is the contemporary art world demands new artists at an ever-increasing, and unhealthy rate. I understand where the cynical view comes from, but I choose to be a bit more sanguine about the situation. After all, more artists than ever now have a chance to support themselves through their creative efforts, and that is certainly not a bad thing.

New American Paintings #103 Sneak Peek

Juror, Monica Ramirez-Montagut, Senior Curator at the San Jose Museum of Art, carefully selected the artists you see below. In her essay, Monica notes, "The selection for New American Paintings makes evident the vitality and vibrancy of paintings, and  the impossibility of narrowing down the practice to one trend or style. Painting continues to be a sublime, visceral, fully fleshed, colorful, and witty facilitator of self-expression."
