Tandem Press is a staple at the fair. Both Ink and Tandem Press specialize in printed work.
“Tandem Press is a printer and publisher of limited edition fine art prints. We work with nationally and internationally known artist from around the country. My favorite part of the job is connecting the art lover with the artwork,” says Amy Newell, curator at Tandem. “Often, editioned prints by an artist are more affordable than that artist's unique work. Editioned prints help more people to connect with these artists and artworks. I love helping collectors add internationally known artists to their collection while selling work that is within the collector' budget. “
Newell, a printmaker herself, says she loves everything about printmaking.
“I love the processes! I love ink on paper and I really enjoy talking to the visitors about printmaking. Because many of the fairs in Miami show all types of artwork, and not strictly prints, the visitors for the fairs may know a good deal about art but may not know much about printmaking. INK Miami is a great opportunity to meet art lovers and introduce them to the fabulous world of printmaking!” she says.

Newell says that with Art Week brings visitors from all over the globe and that it is an amazing time to be in Miami for her and everyone at Tandem Press.
“We meet so many people that we may never meet any other way.” she says.
While you cannot see every fair during Art Week (which now seems to be more than a week) you should make an effort to go to Ink to have a look at Tandem and the other exhibitors there. It is a smaller fair that will not take nearly as long as the larger fairs.
