We're here for another round of Art Basel Miami. In its 14th year and still going strong, with more satellite shows than ever spread out all over Miami Beach, expanding as far as Little Haiti in Miami. Art Basel is as much about socializing as looking and purchasing art and regarded as the contemporary art destination for big collectors and novices alike. Here you can entertain clients, extend your network and yes, maybe buy some art.
The main art show in the Convention Center opens on December 3, with preview receptions for VIPs the morning of and the evening before. Today included visits to the Untitled and Art Miami fairs.
Several of my favorite galleries show are at these fairs, including Monique Meloche Gallery, Chicago, Taymour Grahne Gallery, New York, Goya Contemporary Gallery, Baltimore and Arthur Roger Gallery, New Orleans.
These gallery directors take their fashion as seriously as the artists they represent. Here are highlights of art meets fashion from both shows...
