On Tuesday, December 4th, Red Dot Art Fair had a VIP Opening Reception benefiting the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force to inaugurate another edition of a highly successful satellite art fair which took place concurrently with Art Basel Miami Beach: Red Dot Art Fair. (December 5-9, 2012)
With more than 80 national and international dealers showcasing photography, painting, sculpture and works on paper, the fair offered for the first time a solo section for individual projects featuring smaller booths for single artists.
Also for the first time, Red Dot Art Fair presented an experimental fair within its fair, a project by dealer Aldo Castillo who is heavily using the power of online media to promote his latest artistic endeavors, such as the recent Latin American Pavilion & International Wing hosted last May by Art Shanghai, and the upcoming inaugural ArtSpot Miami 2012 hosted at Red Dot.
Vero Beach-based Intrepid Gallery (Booth E108) presented a unique segment within ArtSpot 2012 launching a collective exhibition organized by the Art Marketing Mind, LLC with Silvia Medina as Intrepid’s Artistic Director and art consultant Maria Napoles and art marketing consultant Cary (Tata) Fernandez of the Art Marketing Mind.

Valenzuela is the founder of GreenArt USA, EarthDayMiami and EcoArtFashion©. He also launched the first EcoArtFashion Week™ in the world.
