Created to appeal to culturally engaged art buyers and enthusiasts, the second annual artMRKT Hamptons will feature leading galleries from across the country. Forty galleries will exhibit original contemporary painting, sculpture, photography and prints at the Bridgehampton Historical Society grounds on July 19 – 22.

Underscoring the Fair’s commitment to the visitor experience, this year’s Opening Night Preview will benefit the Parrish Art Museum. Noted Brooklyn chef Leon Gunn, formerly of Wolfgang Puck, Aria, Noho Star and Williamsburg’s Traif restaurants, will serve opening night guests his “refined take on the quintessential Hamptons dining experience — the summer barbeque.”

Returning this year are many leading New York galleries including Lennon Weinberg, Nancy Hoffman, Kathryn Markel and Morgan Lehman. Other galleries include Halsey Mackey (Hamptons), Boltax Gallery (Shelter Island), 101/Exhibit (Miami), Mindy Solomon Gallery (St. Petersburg) and AUREUS Contemporary (Providence).

Launched by seasoned fair veterans Max Fishko and Jeffrey Wainhause, the artMRKT fairs are well received by exhibitors and visitors alike. “What sets artMRKT Hamptons apart from other fairs is our intimate scale and dedication to showcasing emerging and established artists in a relaxed, welcoming environment,” says fair director Fishko. “We serve the
ever-growing market for art and still appeal to the more seasoned collector.”

The Fair is centrally located in Bridgehampton near renowned restaurants and shops, and the venue and layout of the fair enables the galleries and artists to be the true stars of the show.
