Art Basel Vernissage

Last night was the ever famous Art Basel Vernissage (VIP Opening Night). It is a who's who of art, artists, celebs, curators and collectors. I wanted to share a few fun pictures from the evening. The picture above is with my lifelong friend and fabulous artist, Lu Coxhead. Doesn't she look fab in her leopard jacket...I want one!
Here I am with my BFF, Ivon who was my date to my first Vernissage a few years ago. This time around we brought the husbands and left our babies with our moms. :)

There are two of my favorite artists and friends, Carlos Alves and JC Alves. Carlos is an incredible ceramic artist. He did the floors in the South Florida Art Center on Lincoln Road and the "Sandcastle" at the Miami Children's Museum. He has invited me to bring Chechi to his studio to do foot and hand prints.
I love my museum friends! Adrianne and Marie are at Young at Art but both worked with me at the Miami Children's Museum. They are both artists in their own right as well. So fun to see them...especially since they gushed over baby and how great I look. It's nice to hear, "I can't believe you had a baby 3 weeks ago! You look amazing!"
A butler presenting an ass with a diamond coming out of its ass...that's all I have to say about this one...
Here we are...out and social with a 3 week old at her Coco's house. Aren't you proud of us?
Here I am with my favorite jeweler, friend and blogger, Kristin. Notice her fancy press year I am going to try and get one! I mean...I am blogging about Art Basel.
Dear Donald Judd, I love you. I love your work. I love that they are all basically Untitled.

Dear Santa, All I want for Christmas (other than a scheduled baby) is this painting by Mr. T
So that was Vernissage in a nutshell. I did run into loads of other, friends, museum friends...we even saw Tom Wolfe...we ALWAYS see him at Vernissage. He's hard to miss in his all white suit.
