William Beckman, The Bull Series, #7, 2009
charcoal on paper, 90 x 151 inches
The art hordes have arrived in Miami to attend numerous art fairs that challenge those lacking robust art appetites. Forum Gallery sent me this photograph of William Beckman's impressive charcoal drawing in their email announcement, which seems comical given the context. I imagine the whole scene in Miami feels like raging bulls stampeding the pavilions, creating this enormous crowd press that is so unsuitable for enjoying art. Give me a quiet museum or gallery exhibition any day.
For those of you who are reading this blog anywhere other than Miami - count your blessings. Here are a few websites that offer an insiders' view as you perch outside in comfort.
