Deming King Harriman brings an artist's perspective to the head of the Superfine! Exhibitor Relations department. If you apply to any Superfine! fair, chances are that you'll be lucky enough to encounter Deming's professional, courteous, and poised nature--and you'll be all the better for it. A graduate of MICA in Baltimore, Deming's art career began with illustrating children's books and evolved into a lifelong commitment to the arts, including teaching and leadership positions at museums such as The Wolfsonian on Miami Beach and the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami, as well as managing her own fine art career.
Beyond her pivotal role at Superfine!, Deming's own artwork has been shown in museums, galleries, and art fairs including the past three editions of Superfine! in New York and Miami, the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, Coral Gables Museum, Baker Museum, Brisky Gallery, &gallery, and FU Gallery, as well as a Special Project solo exhibition at SCOPE Miami Beach in December 2016. Deming lives in Miami Beach with her very fluffy semi-aquatic Newfoundland dog and has only one "m" in her first name.
COLLECTORS' LIAISON ||| SPONSOR MANAGER
World traveler and California native, Rachel is proud to be part of the Superfine! team as Collectors' Liaison. With a degree in Theatre for directing and playwriting from UCLA, led her to New York where she immediately started as the production manager of body positivity movement The 36-24-36 Project.

CULTURAL PARTNERSHIPS ||| DC
Noel Kassewitz has spent years working with both well established institutions and newly-founded arts non-profits, in addition to managing her own art career. Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Noel worked with the prestigious Rubell Family Collection after graduating from the University of Florida with her B.F.A. Her driving belief is that art, at its highest levels, is an invaluable tool for provoking thought, reflection and action and therefore that experience should be available to the maximum number of people possible. As the face and facilitator of Superfine’s D.C. Cultural Partnerships, Noel is excited for the types of collaborations that will be debuting this October and that are only possible in a place as dynamic, international, and intriguing as the nation’s capital.
As a professional artist, Noel’s paintings and sculptures explore environmental and metaphysical concerns. Her current body of work addresses climate change and rising sea-levels from the perspective of painter forcing her works to adapt. She uses a tapestry loom to create her own canvas and in the process embeds the found flotation objects into the woven structure, thus ensuring their ability to float as sea levels rise. Noel has exhibited nationally in cities like Miami, Chicago, and New York, as well as internationally in Milan and Bologna, Italy.
