New American Paintings began in 1993 as an experiment in art publishing. With over five thousand artists reviewed annually, it has become one of America's largest and most important series of artist competitions.
Each competition is cataloged in a regional volume of New American Paintings: Northeastern, Mid-Atlantic, Southern, Midwestern, Western, and Pacific Coast. Featured artists are selected on the basis of artistic merit and provided space for free.
Issue #81 has just been released and includes artist Brett Douglas Davis. Copies can be purchased at local bookstore chains.
