New American Paintings #103 Sneak Peek

Within the next few weeks the Pacific Coast issue of New American Paintings, #103, will be received by subscribers and newsstands across the country. 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."

Goodbye Fortin.

It is a sad day today at the New American Paintings office as our Operations Manager, Jessica Fortin, is leaving the company. During her 5+ years of employment with us, Jess worked her way up from an intern, to a jack-of-all trades assistant to every member of the company. Her ability to juggle multiple projects, produce the funniest sneeze we've ever heard, and keep the entire office laughing will be missed. We wish her well as she moves on to a new and exciting chapter in her career.

Best Wishes Fortin!
