If you are in Miami this week, please say hello to our 2014 correspondents, Heather McPherson and Rebecca Morgan. Morgan, represented by Asya Geisberg Gallery in New York, is a native of Western Pennsylvania where she crafts sly images of mountain men, stoners, and other backwoods stereotypes with knowing humor, compassion, and imagination. McPherson, a professor at Providence College, makes large-scale paintings and big clumsy sculptures of heads, which she considers the “throbbing epicenter of consciousness.” I’m looking forward to seeing the fairs through their eyes.
