Daniel Heidkamp’s solo exhibition at Champion (on view through February 25th) in Austin, TX highlights his strengths as a painter. I write this with the embedded pun fully in mind. He is a master of capturing light—whether tempering a fireplace’s glow into this overall pulsing warmth or emblazoning a backyard with patterned tree-limb shadows. Heidkamp’s light is an emotive presence throughout the excellently titled Glow Drops At The Chill Spot. – Read more by Austin contributor, Brian Fee, after the jump!

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!
