It was terrific to be in Miami for the fairs – this past Wednesday through Sunday. The days were in the 70s, sometimes cloudy, with occasional sun showers. Maps showed either twenty-one or twenty-four fairs, more or less even divided between Miami and Miami Beach.

We were at INK Miami, at the Suites of Dorchester Hotel on Collins Avenue at 19th Street – essentially the center of the Miami Beach Art Fair World.
The show was well attended, right through the days, and the visitors were knowledgeable. Several high school and college groups came through -- they were always a lot of fun to talk with and to observe.
It was interesting to install. Each suite was a small apartment (most furniture removed) and we did small groupings that seemed to work well: Angelo Pinto, Peggy Bacon & Her Circle, and William Baziotes.
