Miami Basel

Haven’t missed snow shoveling since I’ve been back in Atlanta, but here are some shots to get into the Christmas spirit – from the Feb. 2010 Snowmegeddon in West Chester, PA.


Good to see all the painting at Miami Basel – from afar, that is. I’ve been vicariously visiting by viewing Joanne Mattera’s blog posts about the arts fair. She even posts about what to wear while you’re there. Following photos courtesy her site.

Smaller paintings are getting the nod at a lot of galleries lately, as well as at art fairs.  I’ll have four small works in a ‘Miniature Perspectives” exhibit coming up in January at the Ferst Center for the Arts, at GA Tech. The collage below is by Alfred Leslie, from the Allen Stone Gallery.

Another great rundown on Miami Basel can be found at Sharon Butler’s Two Coats of Paint blog, with Tatiana Berg’s picks. Photos courtesy Two Coats of Paint.

    Thanks Jamie, congrats on yours too! Wow, Leslie is one of my favorites, you’re lucky to have had him — at Amherst?

  3. No, he was my professor at Boston University. He was everyone’s favorite. He would tell us the most amazing stories about great artists that he was/is friends with. It was interesting to hear how they worked in their studios, how they preferred to have their work shown, torrid tales of their lives, etc. 😉
