What Is The Best Miami Fair For Emerging Art (POLL)

In a little over a month people will be flocking to Miami to visit countless art fairs. Everyone has their favorites, based on a countless number of criteria. New American Paintings prides itself on helping expose the work of hundreds of new emerging artists each year. We continue to serve as a publication that allows its readers to discover new artistic talent in each issue. Not surprisingly, we feel a good art fair should also be a place where art-lovers can have that same sense of discovery.

More or Less Editorial Content In New American Paintings? (POLL)

We are always looking for suggestions and ways to improve New American Paintings. Since its inception, the printed magazine has always been about the artists selected for the publication, with little editorial content other than a juror essay. While we have no intention of ever changing its primary function, over the years we have added features like "Spotlight" and "Behind the Scenes," where we visit the studios, galleries, and minds of current contemporary painters and gallerists.

Who is the most significant painter to emerge since 2000? (Poll)

So you don’t believe in miracles? Think about this: Painting has been pronounced clinically dead dozens of times, and, like Lazarus, it keeps coming back for more. It is the medium that simply refuses to die.

The 1990s were a tough decade for painting, as video, installation, and, in particular, photography, relegated it to the margins of the art world’s often too narrow field of vision. But as the 2000s began, the oldest of mediums returned with a vengeance. Impressively, it has continued to be the dominant medium for more than a decade, first with an explosion of figurative work in the early 2000s, and now with an extreme focus on abstraction.

Artist Headshots: Stay or Go Away?

Although we don't have any immediate plans to change the format, in the office we often talk about ways to improve the experience for our readers. The latest question on the table relates to the headshots we provide with each New American Paintings artist spread. Some feel like the photo of the artist is fun and compliments the biographical information provided, while others think it takes up too much space and doesn't serve a purpose. What do you think? After the Jump, use our poll to join in the conversation and let us know what you think in the comments section!

NAP Artist Count, More or Less? (POLL)

Last week we asked New American Paintings readers what they thought about the Artist Statements included in the publication. We have another question for you…All 40 artists in each edition currently have 3 paintings reproduced. Keeping the number of pages in the magazine constant, would you rather see more artists with fewer reproductions per artist, OR, would you rather see fewer artists with more reproductions per artist? Each option has serious implications. For example, if the publication has fewer artists (with more images per artist) the competitions would be tougher but would arguably yield a tighter grouping of artists.
