Going to Art Basel in Miami? Be sure to drop by the Aqua Hotel at 1530 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139, on Collins A short walk south of Art Basel Miami Beach across from the Loews Hotel. Aqua's organizers are Seattle-based, and it is a premier venue for West Coast and emerging artists.
St. Petersburg gallerina Lori Johns, owner/director of the C. Emerson gallery -- and friend of Art Taco -- will be exhibiting at Aqua, with her stable of artists, Lee Basford, Kyan Bishop, CLayton Chandler, Dirk Dziminsky, Rocky Grimes, Francesco Lo Castro, Kristen Margiotta, and Leah Oates.
I know she has devoted a tremendous amount of energy into this show, and want to wish her the very best at Art Aqua.[Link]
Ps. Aqua will be running free shuttles to Art Basel during regular event hours, picking up at Art Basel's designated shuttle stop, (corner of 17th St. & Washington Ave).
