Visiting the art fairs throughout the year is exciting because we see so many familiar names. A majority of artists that have appeared in New American Paintings have gone on to have extremely successful careers. One barometer of success is making an appearance at one of the fairs in Miami. We already mentioned our favorite fairs, well now we have compiled a list of artists that have been in our publication and will appear in a Miami art fair this year. It’s overwhelming to be reminded of how many amazing artists that we have worked with in the past. We hope you take note and look for their work.
We know there are many more past featured artists out there that will have work at one of the fairs. Is your name missing? If you’re appearing at one of the Miami Art Fairs, and you have been featured in New American Paintings magazine, you can let us know by filling out this form. We’ll do our best to add you to the list in a timely manner.

For the past decade, Miami has effectively become the art capital of the world for one week in early December of each year. Spearheaded by the launch of Art Basel Miami in 2001, the city now plays host to more than a dozen satellite art fairs, and countless events and performances spread throughout the city. Hundreds of galleries from around the world participate in the various fairs and events, and they offer the unprecedented opportunity for art enthusiasts, collectors and art world professionals to consider the work of thousands of artists. Overwhelming? Absolutely. Fun? You bet. An art fair might not be the best situation in which to seriously consider works of art, but there is no better place to get the pulse of the current art world. – Read more from NAP Publisher, Steven Zevitas, and see some highlights after the jump!

Prole Drift stands within an older mixed-use building, angled between the top and bottom of a steep hill in Seattle’s International District. Much in the same way its name references a connection between the upper and the working classes, Dirk Park’s new venue inhabits a space of intersection somewhere between a traditional gallery, a studio and an open place for artistic experimentation.
Residing among the affordable studios, Park and artist Jaq Chartier rent and use for their own practices. Prole Drift’s positioning within this modest art center of sorts prompts reconsideration of how commercial galleries can manifest. Anyone familiar with Aqua Art Miami, Park and Chartier’s annual west coast intervention at Art Basel Miami Beach, would expect no less from Park, whose ventures manifest unhindered by the confines of the established.
I caught up with Dirk to find out more about his approach to creating the new gallery. - Erin Langner, Seattle Contributor

Art Basel Miami Beach 2010, The Day After (via hyperallergic)
If images of saccharine palm tree paintings, or the cube and booth chaos of Basel automatically come to mind when the words “art” and “Miami” meet in a sentence, the time has come for a subconscious refresher. True, those notions about the city remain accurate; Miami continues to host the country’s largest, annual concentration of art fairs. Fortunately the city’s less frequently discussed cultural offerings and contributors posses the ability to eclipse those automatic and boringly obvious associations. —Lydia Ruby, Miami contributor

So far, it has been a great week at Art Basel Miami, full of meeting many New American Paintings artists, subscribers, enjoyed lots of sushi and a few too many parties… It is always so gratifying for me to meet the artists we help in person and hear about their experiences. Likewise, it is also great to talk with collectors who consider the publication to be a vital tool, and who tell me they use it regularly to make collecting purchases.
If you are in Miami this weekend, please stop by Booth M15 in the Magazines section to say hi! – Dana Cordova, Designer & Production Manager
