MEISEL GALLERY, NYC
So, they were kind of dirty back in the late 1940s and 1950s, huh? Louis K Meisel Gallery in NYC is set to host the "Great American Pin-Up,"  an exhibition that features "an outstanding selection of oils by Gil Elvgren, watercolors by Alberto Vargas, and pastels by Rolf Armstrong. The 47-piece collection contains many rare oversized pin-ups that include compositions of the ‘girl next door’ to scenes that verge on fantasy." We aren't sure why the Mel Ramos painting from 2013 is up on the site, so maybe this show collects a half-century of pin-ups?

Paintings by Hermann Albert http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/paintings-by-hermann-albert http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/paintings-by-hermann-albert Paintings by Hermann Albert
When Hermann Albert moved to Berlin in 1964, there was a strong feeling among intellectuals, that figurative painitng was defined by the hateful Stalin doctrine that determined how and what artists were supposed to paint: they were to worship the working class and its achievements and they were to do so in portraits, stillives and landscapes in a heroic style.

Chloe Wise "Pissing, Schmoozing, and Looking Away" @ Division Gallery http://www.juxtapoz.com/fashion/chloe-wise-pissing-schmoozing-and-looking-away-division-gallery http://www.juxtapoz.com/fashion/chloe-wise-pissing-schmoozing-and-looking-away-division-gallery Chloe Wise
Working in an array of media, from video, to sculpture, to painting, Chloe Wise explores the interwoven paths that consumption and desire take towards identity formation. Wise conflates so-called “guilty” commercial, gastronomical, and sexual pleasures—it bags, carb-rich breakfast foods, and fetish gear— creating imagined hybrids of frivolity and excess.
