Fountain Art Fair in Miami

Better late than never.....Fountain fair, which still has yet to be taken very seriously, contained some cool/interesting highlights in and among the lowbrow and/or sloppy work. Under-attended during its normal hours, and scaring off the more conservative art collectors, what with the ramshackle sauna full of naked Scandinavian men in the front yard (sorry, no photos), the fair still revels in its "avant-garde" reputation. Here's the good stuff:

Aqua Wynwood 2009 (MIAMI)

Paul Wackers
Aqua 2009 was a little disappointing to those of us who loved the awesome, illustration/West Coast aesthetic of the 2008 fair. This year, Wynwood had to hold it down for the Aqua establishment, as Aqua Hotel did not take place. Leaving many of its previous participants without an affordable option for exhibiting, Aqua's quality of work fell drastically, shifting from the psychedelic to the low brow/Juxtapoz genres. Gross. Thankfully, Elenor Harwood and Michael Rosenthal galleries kept it real with some Paul Wackers paintings (@ EH's booth) and new Megan Whitmarsh pieces (@ MR). Below are pix of the good, the bad and/or the noteworthy:
