Painting Highlights from the Seattle Art Fair and Out of Sight

No one knew what to expect from the Seattle Art Fair. We barely knew to expect it at all. This may have been due, in part, to the absence of any significant art fair in the region since the 1990s. Most us in the Seattle arts community were still holding our collective breath just several months before now, when none of the local galleries that applied for a booth knew of their acceptance status. — Erin Langner, Seattle contributor

Texas Oil: Painting and Money at Texas Contemporary Art Fair

As the Houston Fine Art Fair is in full swing, one can’t help but think of her younger, hotter sister, Texas Contemporary Art Fair, which finished its three day run last week. Here’s an overview of the state of painting at this year’s Texas Contemporary. Seth Orion Schwaiger, Austin Contributor

Ten Things You Need To See At The 2013 NADA Miami Art Fair

Love them, or hate them, art fairs are now a firmly entrenched part of the art world’s commercial mechanism. Every art fair has its own unique feel and vibe. Some are stately and serene, while others are brash and raucous. Of all the smaller art fairs that take place annually, perhaps none is able to generate the amount of pure heat that the annual installment of the NADA Art Fait in Miami is able to. The VIP preview of NADA has consistently been one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the art fair circuit. On opening morning the biggest collectors in the world, and those on down the food chain, our lined up for what can only be described as a feeding frenzy.

This year’s installment of NADA, Opening Thursday December 5th, is sure to have manufacturers of tiny red dots working overtime to meet the demand. The fair can now be previewed on the excellent art web site Artsy. I spent some time checking it out and after the jump are ten things that are Must See as far as I am concerned. - Steven Zevitas, Publisher

Highlights from the 2013 VOLTA Show

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

Highlights from the 2013 Armory Show

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

Miami Highlights: Rubell, de la Cruz, Margulies

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

Miami Highlights: NADA and SEVEN

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

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...

Miami Highlights: Miami Project and Pulse

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
