5. Michael Berryhill: Incidental Western, Kansas
The only problem with a near-perfect show is that it sometimes doesn’t leave much to talk about. I loved this show but eventually gave up trying to write about it because I couldn’t get my words to match the paintings. Berryhill’s encrusted surfaces belie a dedication to paint and surface rare amongst today’s painters. He is a painter to watch.
