Welcome to the Two Coats of Paint painting-centric guide to gallery exhibitions in New York City. There’s a lot to see this month. We’re in the thick of hurricane season, with Tropical Storms Kate and Larry currently brewing over the Atlantic, so let’s hope inclement weather doesn’t get in the way.
This month we’re recommending all the excellent group shows, especially the ones where old favorites hang next to younger artists who weren’t on our radar.

Post-Miami, our December guide features some new shows and some that have been extended, but keep in mind that many close just before the holidays. Don’t miss Richard Tuttle at Pace, Eric Brown at Theodore:Art (opens on Friday the 13th!), Joanne Greenbaum at Rachel Uffner, and Sonya Kelliher-Combs at Minus Space. Also on the 13th in Bushwick, in a two-person show with Kate Teale, Larry Greenberg steps out from behind the desk at Studio 10 to present his own work — a beautiful new series of blue abstractions that I saw when I visited his studio last month.
