▪ Ann Craven’s I Like Blue exhibition is on view through Jan. 9 at Gallery Diet’s new space in Little River, 6315 NW Second Ave., Miami. The new paintings were started by candlelight during summers spent outdoors in Cushing, Maine, where the artist has a home and studio. In her New York studio, she remakes the original paintings by increasing their size and adding more paint (typically in the form of stripes).

▪ The Frieze Artist Award, now in its third year, is accepting submissions from artists 25-40 to create a major site-specific work at Frieze London Oct. 6-9, 2016. Proposals should be new works that respond to the dynamic environment of the London fair; and applicants will be evaluated based on the innovative nature of their proposal and its potential for realization. The 2015 Frieze Artist Award went to New York-based artist Rachel Rose, who created a scale model of the fair structure in which lighting and sound design simulated the sonic and visual sense frequencies of animals inhabiting The Regent’s Park. The closing date for applications is Feb. 10. For more information, contact or visit
