Elizabeth Turk’s latest marble sculptures would be a touch stone cultural bridge to middle east liberal progressions,

to her career. Turk’s current series of Ribbon marble forms are a joy to behold. They immediately evoke a collective response,
as total strangers share their wonderment together. When Art achieves this, it’s worth every dime to own it because we will all

The big Swiss
art show celebrated 10 yrs with Miami. That many years already?
Miami Beach loves hosting this show and it seems Art Basel feels the same about the match up. Art Basel
even weighed in on a local development issue recently, letting Miami Beach and the City of Miami
know that if they advanced with a mega gambling
project Basel would seriously rethink it’s position and move to another region.wow !.
Maybe they know their best customers have a weakness for gaming that would compete with the Gallery sales. Of course.! Still for those of us living in Miami who have been trying to put the brakes on the mega Gambling
Casinos invasion Art Basel’s input is welcome proof that culture is more important to entertainment than chance, greed, lust and lost opportunities.
