I hope you liked the pics I posted yesterday from the Armory Show. Today I’m sharing photos from The Volta Show. It’s hard to choose which images to post, but I chose the following to give you a feel for the fair (in case you couldn’t make it) and to feature the stand-out booths and works. The venue was great…A bit cramped at times, especially on the first floor, but the building was beautiful and the location was awesome. Already looking forward to next year! – Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

The “second floor” at Volta provided a bit more space to take a breath.

Highlights from the 2013 Armory Show by New American Paintings

Another year, another Armory Show. Overall a good year for painting! However, the fair was a little weird this time around with a clear shortage of “Blue Chip” galleries (You’ll find them at Frieze later in the year), but maybe that’s a good thing. More room for everyone else…Below are some highlights (in my humble opinion) from the fair. Tomorrow I’ll be posting pictures from VOLTA. Enjoy! – Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

Next week we’re headed back to NYC for VOLTA and The Armory Show. Both fairs are open to the public starting on Thursday, March 7th, and open through Sunday, March 10th. I’m anxious to see how the new venue for VOLTA NY works out, although the raw space looks amazing (pictured below). I’ll be taking plenty of photos so check back here on the 11th. I’ll do my best to put you in the heart of the action in case you can’t make it. – Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

We also found out that several past featured New American Paintings artists will be exhibiting at VOLTA. We’ve highlighted those artists after the jump!

Miami Highlights: Rubell, de la Cruz, Margulies by New American Paintings

I hope you’ve enjoyed our coverage of the Miami fairs this past week. It was a blast documenting the events and I like sharing the experience with our readers. Today will be the last day we mention Miami for a while (don’t hold me to that), and I’ll end the fun by posting photos from the three collections I visited, Rubell, de la Cruz, and Margulies. Until next year!!! – Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

Today I’m wrapping up the art fairs with one final post including NADA and Seven. These are the last two fairs that I had a chance to visit while in Miami last week (still recovering, by the way). I wish I had more time and more feet, because I would have attempted more! That doesn’t mean that this is the end of my adventures while there. Tomorrow I’ll be ending the photo-extraveganza with pictures from the Rubell, de la Cruz, and Margulies collections. So don’t go away yet! – Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

Miami Highlights: Art Miami / Context and Untitled by New American Paintings

I made it to Art Miami and Art Context on opening night. It was jammed…There was a lot of talk about the Banksy pieces which were apparently taken from “the streets” of the Middle East and brought here for exhibit and sale. However you feel about the removal and placement, I think most people will agree that the pieces didn’t seem to play well in this context. And, for Banksy, isn’t context what it’s all about? But I digress…

Untitled was a beautiful fair. The ocean view from inside (and out) was incredible and the translucent top to the tent filled the space with nice even light. I heard there were some issues at night, but I didn’t have a chance to see this for myself. Hopefully next year they figure it out. Overall a well curated fair and a welcomed addition to the area.

Check back tomorrow, I’ll post images from NADA and Seven. – Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

Today let’s tackle Pulse and Miami Project. The latter of which is a brand new fair located in Wynwood. It sported an impressive roster and a nice tent, I might add. But I’ll let the photographs speak for themselves. Tomorrow, Art Miami/Context and Untitled (yet another new fair). – Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher
