Art Southampton donates use of pavilion and infrastructure to help
spearhead fundraising initiative surrounding Southampton Hospital’s
55th Annual Summer Party

The inaugural Art Southampton last summer proved to be a game changer
on the Hamptons’ cultural landscape. For the first time, Long Island's East
End hosted an art fair that catered to an underserved group of serious
international collectors, and the response was astounding. From the
opening-night VIP Preview benefitting Southampton Hospital, word of
mouth was extremely positive, and what had been termed the art event of
the season became the event of summer with attendees calling it “a not to
be missed experience.” 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.

Art Southampton, the premiere international contemporary and modern art
fair for acquiring the finest works of art available in the Hamptons, will
return at the height of the social and cultural season this summer, July 25
through 29. The fair will again take place in a spectacular 100,000 sq. ft
pavilion on the grounds of the sprawling 18-acre Southampton Elks Lodge
adjacent to the Southampton Golf Club located directly off Route 27 A.

The fair’s exclusive VIP Preview on July 25 allowing VIP guests the first
opportunity to acquire works 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 invitation-only evening will also serve as kickoff to the Hospital's 55th

Annual Summer Party "Magical Madrid" on August 3 which will move for the
first time ever to the Art Southampton pavilion. The move is a bonus for
the gala supporters who will enjoy the party of the season in air
conditioned comfort and will have the luxury of on-site contained parking.
Once again Jean Shafiroff, who broke fundraising records helming two
previous summer parties, will chair the event and Audrey Gruss will be the
Honorary Chair.

“Southampton Hospital is delighted to join with Art Southampton in
strengthening the collaboration we began last summer, and we are thrilled
that they have again chosen us to be the beneficiary of proceeds from their
opening-night VIP Preview. Even more exciting, the Art Southampton
pavilion will serve as the 2013 site for the hospital’s 55th Annual Summer
Party, proceeds of which will benefit the Jenny and John Paulson Emergency

Department and the new Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart and Stroke
Center,” said Bob Chaloner, President and CEO, Southampton Hospital.

The pavilion will offer amenities for all guests and a unique ambience and
design that is unrivaled by any other art event in the Hamptons. The
proximity of the Art Southampton pavilion will provide convenient access
for residents and collectors living on Long Island, the greater New York
area and the Tri-State who visit the Hamptons frequently during the
summer. Ample complimentary on-site parking and valet service will be

“We are extremely excited to again partner with the Southampton Hospital
for our VIP Preview and to host the second edition of Art Southampton. The
ability to donate the infrastructure of the Art Southampton pavilion allows
our organization and exhibitors to support the Southampton Hospital in its
fundraising initiatives that will ultimately benefit everyone who lives,
vacations or visits the Hamptons,” said Nick Korniloff, Founder, Director
and Partner, Art Southampton.
