Fair Play, my reportage from Miami will start in a couple of days. For the next month I'm going to be showing the work of hundreds, maybe thousands, of artists whose work I see there. Before I do, permit me to take this post to talk about my own work and projects in and out of Miami.

I'll have paintings at Aqua Art, in Room 222, where you'll find the Tucson-based Conrad Wilde Gallery. There's a strong material bent--fabric, paper, resin, wax--to this installation of largely abstract work iinstalled by gallery director Miles Conrad and hs associate Elizabeth McDonnell. There's a peek at two of my paintings below. The opening reception is Wednesday, November 30, 8:00 to 11:00 pm. I'll be there. Click here for comp tickets to the opening and the fair.

A Seaside Resort (but not Miami):
Waxing Enthusiastic in Provincetown


The International Encaustic Conference is the only event of its kind--by professionals, for professionals--devoted to encaustic painting and sculpture. I founded it in 2007, and last year partnered with Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill and its director, Cherie Mittenthal, to produce the annual event in Provincetown, Massachusetts. The Conference draws from an international roster of exhibiting artists who are fully engaged with the medium of pigmented wax, as well as art historians, critics, curators and gallerists who come in to share their expertise. The Provincetown galleries get involved, too. The Conference has grown every year since its founding. Registration is limited to 300. Read more here and register here.

Looking forward to your great reportage on Miami! I have everything crossed that your sciatica will not travel with you but will stay behind in some dark, Dexterish basement, never to see the light of day.
