We were so thrilled to be able to have the chance to see more fairs than usual this year. While we loved the diversity of artists represented at each of the shows that we visited, we have to give a special shoutout to Pulse and Scope for having consistent programs of top quality galleries and artists. As we walked along the aisles at both fairs, we couldn’t help but be pulled in every direction trying to take in as much of it as possible. We certainly tried to - so here are a few of our favorites!

What is the gallery's focus at this year's fair?
This year, we will be focusing on emerging and mid – career contemporary artists from across the world.
Are there specific artists or works that collectors should pay attention to at your booth?
We are very excited to be bringing a Nick Cave Sound Suit, a Jenny Holzer Led sign from the Survival Series, Blah, Blah, Blah by Mel Bochner, and work by the Light and Space Californian, Peter Alexander. Further, we are bringing the work of Paul O’Connor, an artist from Taos, New Mexico, who has an amazing understanding of metals and their alchemic effects. Paul will be included in our spring gallery show featuring Taos artists.
What are some of your favorite aspects of being a part of Art Miami?
As this is our first year at Art Miami, we are excited to see what it brings – and thrilled to go from spectator to participant.
Please give our readers a few tips for making the most of attending art fairs based on your experience.
1) Visit Art Miami first! We would hate for you to miss the great works before they are gone.
2) Take your time, and do not do too much. It is very easy to become overwhelmed, causing works to blur.
