Big Wheel Keep On Turnin'

Miami is done, but they're not home just yet. Marisa and the Like the Spice Mobile Unit are still out there, working their way up the interstates of America and fighting over who gets to use the backseat arm rest. If Marisa doesn't turn this thing around right now like she's threatening to do, we'll be welcoming our wandering lambs back in time for our next opening. But more on that in a bit. Right now, let's take a quick look at the excitement that was Miami 2009! From the very beginning!

Okay, well, the first leg of the trip wasn't that exciting. But by the time we made it down south, man, things started getting much more fun.

All that excitement! However, even bowling and roller coasters couldn't take our team's eyes off the goal. Miami! The home of the art world for one whole weekend! When we arrived, we were ready to rule, and the city seemed ready to have us. Just look at that architecture!

...and the way cooler view!

Oh, that view.

We chose our hotel to be extra-special, because it was not only our lodgings, but also, our exhibition space. Who says Like the Spice isn't original?

This year, Like the Spice showed its work in a more intimate setting, letting everyone take their time, and offering a chance to talk about the pieces face-to-face, rather than just shouting through a crowd. It was a nice escape from the hassles of racing through a busy fair, and it was also a lot of fun. Marisa and our Miami team was constantly on hand to answer questions and make sure people enjoyed themselves. After all, they were guests in our room! We wanted everyone treated just right, so made sure to prepare a special catered dinner party on the very last night. Collectors and hangers-on alke were able to just relax and enjoy. And it was fantastic.

The food was great, the company terrific, and we think that everyone agreed, it was just like one of our Monthly Dinners back home. Ah, home. By now, we could hear it calling to us. We had to accept that, as nice as Miami is, New York is where our little gallery wants to be. So it was time to say our goodbyes to the lovely city that treated us so well, and hit the road once more.

Did you make it to Miami? Did you make it to our hotel? We hope you did, but no matter what your answer, remember tht our special NotMiami2009 exhibit is still going strong in our Brooklyn gallery's downstairs level, right up until the very second Marisa returns! Come in and take a look at pieces from Rachel Beach, Allison Edge, Dean Goelz, Eric LoPresti, Ross Racine, and more.

And then what's coming, you ask? Why, just the beautiful Exposure, featuring the work of Michelle Hinebrook and Nicki Stager! Watch this space for more details in just a bit...
