November 25: Det blir visst litt sporadisk blogging herfra, men det er visst slik det må være når tiden ikke strekker helt til....

Nå reiser vi igjen til Miami for å delta på verdens største kunstmesse under Art Basel Week. I år har vi med oss tilsammen 50 malerier (allerede sendt avgårde i en stor kasse) av Olav Mathisen, Peter Ravn, Gabriel Schmitz, Luis Bivar og Tone Dietrichson.

Jeg reiser sammen med Kathrine og Bianca fra galleriet og vi skal møte Rune som er kurator i Exhibit no9. Han skal jobbe sammen med oss i Miami.  Dette blir stas. Skal blogge litt hver dag...

November 27: l changed my mind, l am going to do this in English. But remember; I am a Norwegian. I will try my best. Yesterday l got all our Businesscards/USB-sticks that we are bringing to Scope Miami. They look great! I came up with the idea because almost none of our vistors at our booth last year wanted to carry a Catalouge. And this device is made of plastic and it's an hidden memory-stick inside with all the paintings on it. 

All the artworks are published here as well:

November 28:

Third day at Scope, half way trough the fair. A bit quiet so far, but a lot of interest in all the participating artists. Olav Mathisen is getting a lot of attention because of his young age.
