Miami Project, a fair out of Williamsburg, Brooklyn enjoying its second year in Miami and located in an undistinguished tent down the block from Art Miami, showed some of the best work anywhere. Dedicated to U.S. galleries with a “serious commitment to important living artists” or “extensive involvement with remarkable estates,” Miami Project lived up to its claims. After seeing Dustin Yellin’s apocalyptic vision, which was like John Martin’s The Deluge encased in glass, at Phong Bui’s magisterial exhibition “Surviving Sandy,” I was excited for Yellin’s smaller works at Richard Heller Gallery.

Seven Days: Change of Place

April 20, 2011 - Pamela Polston

When Mia Feroleto opened Green + Blue Gallery on Stowe’s Mountain Road last fall, it was with the fanfare of intrigue and great promise. Not only was she planning to exhibit national and Vermont artists in a variety of contemporary styles; Feroleto also proposed an ambitious plan to bring urban artists north à la the Fresh Air Fund. That is, to find studio spaces in private homes in which participating artists could work for a brief sojourn, giving their host patron a piece of art as payment.
