Aqua11 and Fountain Miami Art Fairs

Art fairs – you either love them or hate them, or like facebook you love to hate it but use them anyway.  After doing two art fairs this year on my own (AAF in Brussels and Berliner-Liste in Berlin) I see the value of art fairs -the sheer number of people who get to see your artwork on one long weekend, the chance you get (over and over again) to talk about your artwork to strangers, the lessons in commodification of art and the hype cycle experience, all, good and bad, but worthwhile as an artist to experience.

For galleries, it seems the advantages are pretty identical,  kind of a repeatable black friday for the art world.

I’m excited to be represented by both William Baczek Fine Arts at Aqua 11 Art Fair and by Francesca Arcilesi Fine Art at the Fountain Art Fair in Miami, FL Dec. 1st-3rd.  My artwork will be in great company at the William Baczek Gallery since WB will also be showing artwork by Kurt Vonnegut.   Below is some of my artwork that will be available.
