Pick a painter

It’s time to vote for the Reader’s Choice Awards at New American Paintings again. Voting is open through January 7 (one vote per computer), and the winner will be announced by Friday, January 13th. The twelve painters in this year’s competition were selected by the editors at NAP and the curators who selected each issue. Judging from JPEGs isn’t easy, but I’m not knocked out by the selection this year.  Click here for more info about each painter and to submit your vote. The winner receives $500 in art supplies.

  1. I know what you mean. Often NAP seems to merely document trends.
