Weekend in the Hamptons
The eighth edition of Market Art + Design is its largest show to date.
This year is one of expansion for Market Art + Design. For its eighth edition, the event returns to the Bridgehampton Museum on Montauk Highway as the largest and most important edition to date. Seventy-five exhibitors of modern and contemporary art from around the world will present at the fair. Dealers include Haven Gallery, Galerie Fledermaus, Paradigm Gallery + Studio, Vertu Fine Art and RJD Gallery, among others.
Also based in Bridgehampton, RJD Gallery will bring works from Bo Bartlett, Rick Garland, Andrea Kowch, Harmonia Rosales, Jorge Rosales, Jorge Santos and Jamie Wyeth. “We’ve done the fair for years, always met wonderful collectors and found positive results,” says gallery principal Richard J. Demato.
Works from Masha Gusova, Brian Mashburn and others will be available from the Northport, New York-based Haven Gallery. In Great Leap Forward, Mashburn paints the silhouette of a gothic castle, shrouded in clouds, while a tree with budding flowers and songbirds on its branches is displayed at the forefront. From Galerie Fledermaus is Kent William’s Cool with Red, along with historic works from Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. Paradigm Gallery + Studio will bring a series of figurative and landscape works from Katherine Fraser.
Featured alongside the galleries and exhibitors at this year’s fair will be a furniture and object oriented design presentation, curated by Wesley Moon, which is meant to highlight the industry’s most innovative makers. The fair is also expanding its relationship with its beneficiary partner, the Parrish Art Museum.
On July 5, a preview will be held for VIP pass and preview pass holders. The show will open to the general public on July 6 and 7 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and July 8 from noon to 6 p.m.
