THREE GALLERIES TO VISIT:

Christopher Henry Gallery
christopherhenrygallery.com

Which Fair: SCOPE Miami

Home Base: New York City

Price Range: $$

Back Story: Since moving into a renovated church in lower Manhattan, this gallery has promoted work that's as unconventional and inclusive as its space, ranging from comics by graphic novelist R. Kikuo Johnson to installations by design collective rAndom International.

Don't Miss: Crochet-obsessed Polish artist Olek blankets bicycles, trees, entire rooms, and even people in richly colored yarn. It's like Grandma's house on acid!
