CARTWHEEL Picks: Context is new for 2012 and located in Wynwood. This is an absolutely must-see international fair, and we’re thrilled to see that several of our favorite  the West Coast galleries including the renowned Merry Karnowsky Gallery, which CARTWHEEL regularly visits, is an exhibitor (keep reading here). So is Fabien Castanier, L.A.’s champion of European street art, notably Speedy Graphito (Check out CARTWHEEL’s  coverage from this summer!). San Francisco’s Varnish Fine Art works with CARTWHEEL favorites, whom we’ve interviewed at length: Ransom & Mitchell and Isabel Samaras; and will also be exhibiting JennyBird Alcantara and Chuck Sperry. Context is the McLoughlin Gallery’s entrée to Miami’s art fairs, which is great news for those who follow emerging artists Laura Kimpton and Evan “ESK” Wilson, like CARTWHEEL’s Cindy, who’s put several of their pieces into the CARTWHEEL collection.
