Today we received advanced copies of #96, the 2011 West Issue of New American Paintings! It is expected to hit newsstands and ship to subscribers in the next 1 to 2 weeks, so keep an eye out. It will be hard to miss the cover of this one...The juror for this fantastic issue was Cassandra Coblentz, Curator, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA).

Coblentz states in her introduction that, "the artists represented in these pages demonstrate the vitality of artistic practice in this region of the country. Boldly building upon the richness of art history, their demonstrations of reinvention and innovation are in step with the mythos of the landscape itself, which continues to serve as an important backdrop for exploring the most pressing issues and concerns we all face in the West." -- View a list of all featured artists and see a few more sneak peaks after the jump!
