Alex Gross' last solo exhibition ran from October 9th to November 8th at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery.

In 2012, Gingko published Alex's third book, Now And Then, The Cabinet Card Paintings of Alex Gross, which includes 98 mixed media paintings. October 2014 brought the release of Alex's fourth book, entitled Future Tense, Paintings by Alex Gross, again published by Gingko Press. Future Tense is 96 pages, and features 40 paintings done between 2010 and 2014. The introduction was written by Caleb Neelon.
