Steven Zevitas Gallery is pleased to present New American Paintings 2019 Review: Part 2. The exhibition will run from August 2 – September 14, 2019 with receptions on Friday, August 2 from 5:30 – 8:00 PM and Friday, September 6 from 5:30 – 8:00 PM.
In 1993, the publication New American Paintings (NAP) was founded on an idea to occupy the space in between- to bridge the divide separating under-recognized artists and a large audience of curators, collectors, other artists, and art-lovers alike. Twenty-five years later, the publication is still dedicated to giving access to emerging artists by closing the information gap between the independent artist and the art community as a whole. In New American Paintings 2019 Review: Part 2, we bring together twelve artists featured in this year’s issues of NAP who each explore a territory in between. Whether it be the gaps separating the rungs of regimented social structure, the fragile delineation between home and displacement, the differences between manufacturing history and narrative, or the moments amid lacing your shoes and running out the door in the morning, each artist deeply investigates everything the space in between holds- the potential to build and the pockets unseen.
Featured Artists: Bradley Biancardi, Chloe Chiasson, Genevieve Cohn, Kareem-Anthony Ferreira, Josias Figueirido, Emily Furr, Arghavan Khosravi, Morgan Mandalay, Rebecca Ness, Jamaal Peterman, Michael Royce and Papay Solomon.
