First women owned art fair gives a voice to women and minorities during Miami Art Week

MIAMI, FLA.- CONCEPTION ART FAIR is the first art fair at Miami Art Week, owned and produced exclusively by women: Art Director, Curator and New York Business Journal's 2016 Woman of Influence, Rachel Wilkins, and co-owner and producer, seasoned New York / New Jersey Attorney, Jennifer M. Blum. Esq.

CONCEPTION ART FAIR returns to the heart of Miami’s Art & Design District this coming December 2016. The fair will occupy a gorgeous 7,500, two story building in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District, Dec 1st – 4th. It will feature a dynamic presentation of contemporary art by artists from around the world - especially women and underrepresented minorities, having a strong focus on art for social and political change.

Suzanne Scott - A New York City based, classically trained oil painter and 12 year mentee of iconic artist, Chuck Close, Suzanne was born in New Jersey in 1973 and has lived and worked in Manhattan for the past 18 plus years. Her work focuses on abstract portraiture, reliant on natural patterning, with a strong emphasis on color theory.

Suzanne’s Fingerprint series is homage to humanity. “In very basic terms, I fingerprint those that are close to me; I scan the print, enlarge it in order to work from it, then turn the structure of the print itself into an abstracted, psychological, emotional portrait.” – Suzanne Scott

Bar Ben Vakil was born in 1989 in a small town in Israel. Enrolling in the national army at the tender age of 16, Bar went on to exhibit in the prestigious Salon D’automne in Paris. Bar’s work is vibrant, lively and eccentric. Her works combine elements of urban street art with feminine and tropical contemporary style.

Christian Escobar “Chrispapita” A Dentist by trade and a self-taught artist resides in Guatemala. Christpapita’s Hyperrealist works are an exceptional blend of urban culture, nature and human anatomy.

Conception Art Fair, Co-Founder and Director, Rachel Wilkins explains how Conception Art Fair came about. “There is such a troubling imbalance in the art world. I’ve felt it as an artist; working in the industry, attending museums, even as a potential collector. There is a profound lack of equality. Institutions, galleries, and major blue chip art fairs are all heavily dominated by men. We, at Conception, want to show that strong women have a place at the table. That female artists and artists of other, underserved minorities, can be the highlights and not just afterthoughts of an exhibition.”

“The recent political events show us that as a society we have made some monumental advancements towards women’s equality. It has also shown us that there is still much work to be done. We hope that the more opportunities we can provide to women and other minorities the more our efforts will help advance the cause of inclusion for everyone, based upon talent and talent alone.” - Jennifer Blum, Co-Founder and General Counsel, Conception Art Fair.
