An opening reception from 5-9 PM on Thursday, November 12 will be sponsored by and feature music and beverages from Churchill’s Pub.
What makes you happy? What color is it? Artists Andrew Ringler, Cara Hunter Viera, Dylan Green, Eric Ginsburg, Johan Wallstrom, Kazuko Miyamoto, Linda DiGusta, Virginia Erdie and Yoko Ono will answer this question visually in a group exhibition of works depicting their favorite subjects, yes, in color. In addition to theme, works in the show are linked via their creators, all connected to Fridge Art Fair since its inception in 2013 and engaged in dialogue about creation and meaning with one another ever since.

o Fridge Art Fair was born in 2013 on the Lower East Side, as a satellite of Frieze New York. The inaugural Fair was filled to capacity with exhibitors who answered Founder Eric Ginsburg’s challenge, “Can you fit into the Fridge?” at Kazuko Miyamoto’s small but storied storefront, Gallery OneTwentyEight. Founded by artist Eric Ginsburg, The Fair has gathered a growing following of exhibitors, sponsors, and visitors through two more New York editions, as well as two previous Miami fairs in 2013 and 2014. The 2015 edition will mark Fridge’s Miami Beach debut, where the fair’s unique character will complement the offerings of the nearby Pulse and NADA shows, as well as Scope, Aqua and Art Basel in South Beach.
