“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” (cue song for .1 seconds before it gets too annoying) for any art addict. It’s ABMB aka ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH. It is a dream come true. Galleries from near and far bring their best works. Artists, celebrities, collectors, and dealers unite to put on the best show. And from what I’ve seen so far, it is going to be an AB FAB week.
While I have to admit I have only been to Context Art Miami, a satellite fair, many booths were not even close to short of bringing their A game. And trust me, they brought it. Many brought their A+ game. NO JOKE.
From seeing works of Dubuffet, to Joseph Albers, Mel Bochner, Alex Katz, Sam Francis, and more (yes, this is a satellite fair and not Basel itself – shocking to me, I know) I was impressed to say the least.
Check out some pics below of the FABULOUS WORKS… and remember, this is just the beginning!
BRING IT ON BASEL!
For many, ART BASEL Miami is a massive PARTY. For some who are not buyers, yet MASSIVE fans of truly GREAT ART… this may have been the most exhausting but incredibly exciting week for you. And now that it’s over, we all still need a vacation.
But let’s not forget the art that we saw that came in from every corner of the earth. Here are some images we captured from galleries all across Basel…And we LOVED every minute of it!

I mean, is this not spectacular??? AND this is only a few of the hundreds of thousands of artists shown. And not only that, this is like .000000001% of the art shown.
Spectacular is an understatement. Was it worth the exhaustion? ABSOLUTELY. I would do it all over again in a he(ART)beat.
Have a FAB Holiday and New Years!
