“Untitled–the best fair in Miami Beach”

Contributed by guest correspondent Sharon Louden / Today, I ventured out to Untitled, a curated art fair which I believe is by far the leading art fair in Miami Beach. Each year the quality of the work is high and the viewing, from the lighting to the selection of galleries and the work that they show, is the best. Here are some highlights.

Following my obsession with Imi Knoebel, I found more of his work at Galerie Christian Lethert.

And what a pleasure to see Cary Smith‘s work, which always makes me smile! Smith has a solo show on view at Fredericks and Freiser through January 9, 2016.

I absolutely love Shirley Kaneda‘s work and enjoyed the entire booth at Galerie Richard.
Pierogi 2000, a gallery that for many years rented their own space with a few other like-minded galleries in the Wynwood district, had an amazing installation in their booth at Untitled this year.

And, finally, two representational artists piqued my interest — inventive collagist Halley Zien and painter Hope Gangloff:
