Art Basel Miami Beach announced its 2014 exhibitors this morning, and two Miami players have made the list.

No stranger to the Basel center stage, Fredric Snitzer Gallery will return to exhibit in this year's main gallery section. Snitzer's presence has come to be expected, as its owner is a member of the fair's selection committee.

Welcomed to the fold is downtown's Michael Jon Gallery. Briefly located in the Design District, the gallery featured its exhibition, "Math Bass - Newz!" during last year's Basel season. Michael Jon will be included in the fair's Nova section, designed for galleries to present one to three artists showing new works that have been created within the last three years, often spotlighting never-before-seen pieces from the artist's studio.

Upcoming Events

Last year's other Miami-based Nova feature, Spinello Projects, was left out this season. In 2013, the gallery highlighted exciting new works from artists like Franky Cruz and Agustina Woodgate.

Basel newcomer Michael Jon Gallery featured four new abstract cyanotypes in a series called "Equivalent Simulation" by photographic artist John Opera earlier this summer, along with L.A.-based artist JPW3's solo show this spring, "Solid Single Burner."

Michael Jon owner Michael Jon Radziewicz couldn't be reached for comment on the Basel announcement, but congratulations are in order for the inclusion. Still, in a list of over 200 international and New York-based galleries, the tiny number of Miami spots selected remains a tough pill to swallow.
