Miami Beach's Ocean Drive is a hot spot for Miami Art Fair week with Scope Miami Beach and Untitled Miami Beach as next door neighbors on the sand. Located around 8th Avenue, both art fairs opened Tuesday night, November 29, 2016, with VIP receptions and opened to the public on Wednesday, November 30, 2016. Both art fairs remain on view through December 4, 2016.

Scope Miami Beach hosts 135 international galleries based in 31 countries. The art fair expects 55,000 visitors to pass through its doors over the course of the six days. Chester and Christy Murray, owners of Quogue Gallery in The Hamptons, reported a crowd turned out for opening night. They present a solo booth of paintings by Liz Sloan for their debut at Scope.

"There was a large crowd here and it was as diverse and varied as the artwork," reported the gallery couple. "There is a lot of thought provoking contemporary art at Scope this year. The reaction to the work is positive with lots of red dots on display."

A few hundred feet away, Untitled Miami Beach presents 129 galleries featuring contemporary art. Also international, exhibiting galleries include The Hole and Albertz Benda (New York), Eric Firestone Gallery (East Hampton & New York), Diane Rosenstein (Los Angeles) and Gallery Thomas Fuchs (Stuttgart, Germany), who present a solo show of American realist artist Patrick Angus (1954-1992).
