RED DOT MIAMI 2023 WAS AN AMAZING FAIR!

Art lovers and collectors were excited to attend the 18th edition of Red Dot Miami, a curated contemporary art fair held annually during Miami Art Week. This year’s five-day fair ran from Opening Night on December 6 through Sunday, December 10, with exhibitors from 27 countries showcasing works from hundreds of artists across the globe.

Fair Highlights

Stepping into the Lobby, guests were greeted by Empress Gin’s elegant display — then off to explore Red Dot’s galleries, including K-Art Project’s Alternative Media exhibit, Miami Fine Art Gallery’s colorful contemporary animal sculptures from the Wild Kong and Born Wild Collections, and Renssen’s unveiling of the Feather Serenade Collection among so many innovative works presented by both repeat and new exhibitors.
  • They checked out K-Art Projects USA‘s Booth 200 and were captivated the Alternative Media Collection, including Sperman’s Heat acrylic sculpture, Cardenas’ Mona Lisa Tic Tac Toe concrete and steel painting, and Abuela’s Pressure 16 wood and concrete sculpture.
  • The Good Dog / Bad Dog Collection by Jackie Fuchs at Art Love Gallery, Booth 505, was once again a hit this year with fans stopping and chuckling for a second and third look. And many found new homes by the end of the fair.
  • Once again Kris and Angela Gebhardt showcased their newest works in the Gebhardt Gallery Booth 401 with Kris’ “Untitled” 87″ x 81″ piece being placed.
  • Strolling the aisles and finding that perfect piece of art was made all the better while sipping a glass of Pommery Champagne!

There was so much more — take a look at the videos that capture the magic or our photo albums and you’ll see what we mean!
