Art Southampton, presented by Art Miami, is the premiere international contemporary and modern art fair taking place in the Hamptons at the peak of its season, July 25 though 29. The fair features a carefully selected group of 75 international art galleries with a strong focus on works from the 20th and 21st centuries.
The fair's opening VIP Preview on July 25 will continue to benefit the Southampton Hospital and provide the perfect backdrop as a kickoff event for the summer's most important art event in the Hamptons. The 2012 VIP Preview attracted more than 3,600 collectors, art advisors, curators, designers and Southampton Hospital supporters; the overall five-day fair attracted more than 11,500 attendees.
An advisory committee will assist in the vetting of gallery programs ensuring that the quality of art will be on par with the excellence of Art Miami allowing collectors, institutions, curators and art advisors to acquire works with confidence.
The 75,000-square-foot Art Southampton pavilion will also showcase a professionally designed VIP lounge, curated indoor and outdoor projects and will once again be located on the sprawling 18-acre estate property behind the Southampton Elks Lodge and adjacent to the Southampton Golf Club located directly off of Route 27 A.
The pavilion will offer amenities for all guests and a unique ambiance and design that is unrivaled by any other art fair in the Hamptons. The proximity of the Art Southampton pavilion will provide convenient access for residents and collectors living in Long Island, the greater New York area and the Tri-State who visit the Hamptons frequently during the summer. Ample on-site parking and valet service will be available.
