Art For Sandy Relief: A Closer Look at The Artist Relief Project by New American Paintings

Like most New Yorkers, it was hard to look beyond our own basic necessities in the days leading up to Hurricane Sandy. Bottled water, flashlights, canned food. But as the winds died down and the storm’s damage was made known, the extent of its devastation proved bewildering. The homes, neighborhoods, and businesses in New York and New Jersey that took the worst of hits were highly visible news stories. But in the days and weeks following the storm there was another community whose irreparable damages came to light: those of the arts community. – Nadiah Fellah, NYC Contributor

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

Miami Highlights: Basel and Aqua by New American Paintings

I’m back from a crazy week in Miami and I have too many pictures for just one post…Or two or three for that matter. I figure the best way to tackle this is to post highlights from different fairs and collections each day of this week. To kick things off I thought it would be fun to start with two extremes, Basel and Aqua (the latter of which was voted by our readers as “The Best Miami Fair for Emerging Art” and recently purchased by Art Miami LLC).

Tomorrow I’ll post pictures from Pulse and Miami Projects. Wednesday I’ll share photos from Art Miami and Untitled, and Thursday I’ll wrap up the fairs with NADA and Seven. Finally, on Friday, I’ll throw up some pics from a few different collections including Rubell, de la Cruz, and Margulies. – Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

New American Paintings Guide To Miami 2012 by New American Paintings

It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year again…In one week we are headed to Miami for Art Basel and other shenanigans. Another year, another list! We’ve put this post together to highlight some of our favorite fairs to check out while in Miami, if you are fortunate enough to make it. We are especially looking forward to UNTITLED and MIAMI PROJECT, two newcomers to the Miami scene that we hope can make an impact on the annual art-a-thon. We know there are more fairs and events that we could have mentioned, so if you have any other recommendations, by all means, let us all know in the comments section…

Also noted below, along with each fair, are some notable galleries that have a reputation for featuring emerging art. As you can see from the post, Miami will also be a good chance to see some galleries we called out on our “40 Galleries You Should Know if You Love Paint” list. We put an asterisks next to those galleries found on the list, and bolded them too.

On Wednesday, we’ll be letting you know where some past featured New American Paintings artists will have their work! So check back soon.
