I've been planning my trip and thought I would share this list of fairs and info with the forum. For those of you going be sure to check the websites for shuttle service, directions, etc. Hope to meet some of you in Miami!
I am thrilled, looks like I will be down there for part of it, sadly with all my time off I have started volunteering at a charity for children who are in foster care but turning 18 so they have to leave. My moms business partner started it so I will miss one of the days, but I will be there.
YES YES YES ... 2012 A.S.S. IS HERE ... YES YES YES
After 12 hours of traveling (damn you Continental) we are finally in Miami. Hope to see some members here and will post a ton of pics as soon as possible. I'll try and grab freebies for members who didn't make it this year.
Droow, I'll have to find out about that but I'm pretty sure that was meant to be there. I mean, if that was vandalized, it's pretty obvious right? Why would the gallery display it?
* seven large prints from Chinese artist, Alex Guofeng Cao, of New York based ChinaSquare Gallery with prices ranging from $7,000 ‐ $15,000.
* Michael Goedhuis sold a Wei Ligang ink painting for $185,000 to Wu Qing, one of the most important collectors in China.
* Evelyn Aimis Fine Art sold a Jaume Plensa sculpture for $135,000

seriously... how did you obtain so much price tidbits in just one day??? ;-) atm, i'm packing right now and taking a red eye flight to miami tonight! the photos got me psyched about the art fairs!
looking forward to meeting some of you even though i won't probably recognize your faces at all...
Haha. Guess you missed out on buying some of those works dude. One day late. If any of you would like to meet up with the AM crew or other artchival members, send me a pm and I can try to arrange things hopefully but people are pretty busy there I assume. Enjoy!
