I enjoyed myself without effort at palmbeach3. I saw lots to like, the size felt manageable, and the division of the fair into three sections (contemporary art, photography, and crafts) made sense. It had more to see than Art Miami (which now looks even more useless by comparison) but didn't have the drowning-in-art atmosphere of Art Basel. Exhibitors tended to frown and bobble their heads side to side when asked if they were having a good fair. I heard many of them wish for more people, and wonder whether the other two fairs had sucked the energy out of the local art lovers. But several said they were doing well.
Eric Forstmann at Eckert.
Andrea Belag at Heinz Holtmann.
Mary Joan Waid at Nohra Haime.
I can barely read my writing, but I think my note says Guido Anderloni at Karpio Facchini.
Pierre Marie Brisson at Franklin Bowles.
Auerbach (terrible shot, slightly better than nothing) and Freud at Archeus.
Eric Aho at Tory Folliard.
Janusz Walentynowicz at Tory Folliard.
Ruprecht Dreher at Dogenhaus.
Craig Kauffman at Franklin Parrasch.
Howard Hodgkin at Hackett Freedman.
A crazy little Milton Avery at Hackett Freedman.
David Ligare at Hackett Freedman.
Terry Rodgers at Fay Gold. The first time I saw this guy's work it pissed me off. Now, I sort of got into it. It struck me as Rosenquistian. (Rosenquixotic?).
Angelina Nasso at Fay Gold.
Yan Rauchwerger at Dvir.
David Hollingsworth at Goya.
