A Fresh Breeze in Miami Beach

As I noted in this post a while back, the entire art world has been migrating to Miami Beach for the first week of December for the past few years now. The draw is what has become, very quickly, America's most important art fair, Art Basel Miami Beach.

As I also noted, there's a growing industry of satellite art fairs, and there's no getting around it, they all take advantage of the fact that Basel brings the big collectors and curators to this tropical location and everyone is usually in a very good mood.

Our gallery has exhibited in Miami for the past three years, and this year we're very pleased to announce that we'll be participating in the freshest new satellite art fair: Aqua Art Miami. It's right on Collins Avenue (mere steps from the beach!!!) across from the Loews Hotel, where many of our best collectors stay (hey you guys, walk on over!). Aqua includes a great mix of predominantly West coast galleries (did I tell you the West coast was hot right now or what?). So if you're coming to Miami Beach this December (and really, where else would you want to be then?), be sure to stop in and say "Hi." We'll be serving up the mojitos cold, the gossip hot, and some new work by our artists you won't want to miss!

I sense a running joke emerging!

Do stop in and introduce yourself if you're there Mark.

If I bring a small painting will you pose for a Thumbs-Up photo with it?

Is that part of a performance piece you're working on?

Yes, sort of. Not really performance. Photos of Recommendation for my Thumbs-Up Mandala. Will you do it?

Every year I say I'll blog from there and I'm too drunk/hungover/busy looking at art to do it. Which is fine becuase those are by FAR my lowest hit days of the year. Lower than Christmas.

The other one getting attention is Pulse. It's taking place in the Design District. They haven't listed who's participating yet, but I've heard it should be a good line-up.

I love Design District party in Miami. Image 5-6 blocks closed for cars and free drinks on every corner, loud music, dancind on every corner, bands, fancy private parties.
Can't wait till December. Whoever will be there wil have great time, cause I do :)
