From The Editor: Thank You

Dear Friend,

As I sit down and think about the fact that the magazine has been around for two years, I am filled with awe, gratitude, and excitement for things to come. As you can imagine, any creative project has its challenges and setbacks. I have been fortunate to meet an incredible team of writers, curators, and editors along with the incredible art community that keeps this publication going year after year.

Because of your support, we have celebrated our two-year anniversary and are excited for things ahead. Even in this digital age, there is something so special about exploring new art through print. Our passion lies in helping our readers and collectors discover new talent, or get to know familiar names in the art world on a more intimate level. From an artist's perspective, there is nothing more magical than seeing your own work on glossy pages of a quality magazine.

Reflecting on the past two years, we are proud to serve a diverse and global community of artists and we're so thankful to celebrate together with a few of you at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in October. We hope to continue engaging with you in person at curated events and through our new platform, the Art & Cocktails Podcast.

So here's your homework for the rest of the year:

I want to encourage you to start that project you keep thinking about, whether it's a new ambitious body of work or creative business venture like a zine or gallery space. If it's been on your mind for a few months or years and you just haven't pulled the trigger, start researching how you can make it happen. It's hard work, time consuming, and will make you crazy at times, but I promise you it's worth it. You will build an entire tribe, discover your strengths, and potentially help change the course of the art world.

Thank you for being a part of our thriving art community.

Warm Regards,

Ekaterina

What is the gallery's focus at this year's fair?

This year we will be presenting a dynamic selection of post war and contemporary art. Including works by Richard Diebenkorn, Jules Olitski, Friedel Dzubas and Kenneth Noland.  The presentation will include highlights from each artist’s career; including Diebenkorn’s Ocean Park series, Olitski’s early sprays, and Noland’s sixties stripe paintings.

Are there specific artists or works that collectors should pay attention to at your booth? 

Featured in our booth are paintings by Kikuo Saito a Japanese painter who sadly passed away just last year.  During the final years of his life Saito created the most spectacular paintings of his career.  Currently we represent the Estate of the Artist and are pleased to present these cherished late works.

What trends have you noticed in the art market over the past few years?

In the last few years I have seen collectors revisit overlooked / undervalued talents.  Most recently I have seen a real increase in the market of Friedel Dzubas. These beautiful paintings previously traded for low figures comparatively to his peers.  Now in just a few years the artist’s market is strong and growing.  We will be showing a selection of paintings by Friedel Dzubas - this would be a great opportunity for collectors to acquire works by this artist.

What are some of your favorite aspects of being a part of Art Miami?

Art Miami is Miami’s original fair.  It stays true to its roots and is an excellent place for experienced and new collectors alike to find top quality works.  It is not only a chance for us to be with our fellow galleries from New York – but also meet new galleries from around the world.

Please give our readers a few tips for making the most of attending art fairs based on your experience. 

There is a lot to see, so it’s good to pace yourself.   I recommend coming to ArtMiami more than once - often the VIP opening can be quite busy and hard to get a full sense of the works.  To avoid the crowd, I recommend coming early when the doors open.  We look forward to meeting you at our booth this year!
