This nifty tossed salad of offerings strikes palatable balances that won't leave you feeling hungry for fresher talent a half-hour after leaving. If Verge Art Fair is good enough for Charles Saatchi and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, surely local and visiting art-lurkers can keep pace with this showcase of exclusively emerging artists. With fairs held in New York and Basel each year, Verge swells with unique works and projects, riding its popularity from its Miami debut last year. The small, fashionable Catalina Hotel in Miami Beach will host this year's Verge. The fair includes a drawing show, highlighting the oft-overlooked medium, and a DIY event founded by the show's creators, Edouard Steinhauer and Michael Workman.
