We Are Who We Are - Art Basel 2018

Thank you for considering your participation in We Are Who We Are

This is our 3rd year of hosting an Artist showcase at Griot's Gallery and Academy 8260 NE 2nd Ave. Miami FL 33138 during the world famous Art Basel Miami weekend and we are proud to say that we have had a successful show. What does that mean to us? It means that all parties involved have made sales in past years!

We Are Who We Are is held in an intimate gallery space where Artists can invite prospects, clients, fellow artists, and art enthusiasts of all ages within your social circles to engage on an authentic level with your work, in hopes of being compensated for your efforts. Our goal is to share in some of the practices of our show's Founder Frank Frazier. He has been a professional Artist for more than 40 years and always displays his work with sales strategies at the forefront of his mind. We as fellow artists can learn so much from him, his experience and his energetic work ethic. Making the work and selling it are two equally important components to being a professional Artist who's livelihood counts on both the need for creative expression and to also flourish financially.

We Are Who We Are is scheduled to run daily for 4 days from 11:00am - 8:00pm Thursday December 6th-Sunday December 9th, 2018. If you would like an important collector to schedule a preview earlier than gallery hours, it can be arranged. We want you to succeed!

Check in/set up is Wednesday December 5th from {10:00am - 6:00pm}.

There will be FREE workshops open to the public on Saturday December 8th and Sunday December 9th for audience participation as follows:


2:00PM Lecture Series: Dr. Michael Butler - Cataloging Your Collections

4:00PM Silkscreening: Frank Frazier - Signature Style

6:00PM Art Workshop: Tracy Ann Simmonds - Healing Ourselves With Art


2:00PM Henna Workshop: Fanta Celah - Timeless Beauty

4:00PM Lecture Series: Al Johnson - Lessons In Expressionism

We Are Who We Are hopes to take Mr. Frazier's ideals to the next level with your help and in order to make the show a success, it will take a small amount of financial assistance from all participants so that we can make it the best it's ever been. There is a $100-$200 fee per artist for fullest participation in the show. Our collective funds will be allocated as follows:

  • Display Panels + Set Up + Delivery

  • Promotional Banners with each Artist name [2] to be hung on the outside of the gallery

  • Promotional Flyers [5000]

  • Press Release Production & Distribution

  • 4 Page Feature in the We Are Who We Are catalog by Griot's Gallery & Academy

  • Refreshments during show hours [water, wine, juice, fruit, cheese, crackers, sandwiches, cookies]

There are two rooms of the gallery where we will set up using wall space as well as felt panels to create a display in the middle of the gallery. We will have basic set up tools and chairs, please feel free to bring your own tables and anything else you need to personalize your exhibit.
