New American Paintings’ Miami Beach Highlights by New American Paintings

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!

With Art Chicago | NEXT‘s new combined layout on the 12th floor of the Merchandise Mart this weekend, crowds were in full force, as were the numbers of New American Paintings alums. It was fantastic to see so many previously featured artists from countless regional editions, booth after booth. Our Publisher, Steven Zevitas, and Associate Publisher, Drew Katz, caught a few snapshots of NAP artists on view in both fairs, and here are a few highlights.
