Thursday, July 9, 2015 — This weekend kicked off the opening of highly acclaimed international modern art fair Art Southampton. Over 5,00 international art collectors, curators, and art critics who had VIP Preview tickets to this premiere modern art fair filed into Nova’s Ark sculpture fields in Bridgehampton for the early sneak peek at the fourth annual Art Southampton.
Put on by Art Miami, Art Southampton will continue to run through July 13, 2015. Art Southampton has emerged in the last few years as the premiere modern art fair event in the Hamptons and an important international art event. Attendees at Thursday’s opening event were some of the world’s most respected curators, art critics, art collectors, designers, and art advisors. The two-tier, 100,000 square foot pavilion set up in the sculpture grounds houses the most sought after pieces of the 20th and 21st centuries. Each day during the art fair, more attendees will be pouring in daily to see the works offered in the modern art arena.
Thursday’s VIP Preview was held to benefit the Parrish Art Museum and Southampton Hospital. It was extremely successful, bringing in over 5,200 guests at the cocktail reception. Art Southampton was founded and put together by Art Miami, presenting work to 85 international art galleries. The New York Academy of Art has an exclusive relationship with Art Southampton and returns to this year’s event with celebrated artist April Gornik, who will be available for book signings.
This year’s fair is being held at:
- Nova’s Ark Project
- 60 Millstone Road
- Bridgehampton, New York
Art Southampton will continue through the weekend, from Noon to 7PM on Friday and Saturday and Sunday and Monday it will close at 6PM. An exclusive discussion with the Editor in Chief of Luxe Interiors + Design will be held during the fair, highlighting the interaction between interior design and contemporary art. This invitation-only event will be held on Friday July 10 in the VIP lounge, at 5PM.
