DISPATCH - DEC 22, 2013

MIAMI & MIAMI BEACH, FL

Two things were apparent during this year's Miami Art Fair Week: There were too many art fairs and events that were possible to attend and residents of the Hamptons could be seen everywhere. Hamptons galleries were present at nearly all art fairs: Art Miami, Context, Miami Project, Aqua 13 Art Miami, Art Untitled, Red Dot, Scope Miami Beach.

Hamptons galleries exhibiting included Kathryn Markel Fine Arts (CONTEXT), Mark Borghi Fine Art (Art Miami), Eric Firestone Gallery (Miami Project), Birnam Wood Galleries (Art Southampton), Lawrence Fine Art (Red Dot), Keszler Gallery (Art Miami), QF Gallery (Scope Miami Beach), Peter Marcelle Gallery (Art Southampton), Bridgehampton Fine Art (Red Dot) and Halsey Mckay Gallery (Art Untitled).

New York City galleries with ties to the Hamptons included Washburn Gallery (Art Basel Miami Beach), Michael Rosenfeld Gallery (Art Basel Miami Beach), Lyons Wier Gallery (CONTEXT and Aqua 13 Art Miami) and Tibor de Nagy Gallery (Miami Project).

Hamptons artists exhibiting at the fairs include Eric Fischl of North Haven (Art Basel Miami Beach), Jeff Muhs of Southampton (Aqua 13 Art Miami), Margaret Garrett of Shelter Island (Art Miami), Kevin Berlin of Southampton & Florence, Italy (Aqua 13 Art Miami) and Hector Leonardi of Bridgehampton (Art Untitled).

Following are just a few Hamptonites caught attending Miami Art Week and where they were spotted:
