Art Southampton's exterior entrance.

With the Hamptons’ social season in full swing, there’s no better time for the fifth edition of Art Southampton. Produced by Art Miami LLC—the company behind a number of the country’s top art fairs, including its flagship fair, Art Miami—Art Southampton attracts leading collectors, curators, interior designers, and enthusiasts thanks to its stellar mix of contemporary and modern art and design. Last year, 21,000 attendees visited the fair during its five-day run.

This year’s fair, held July 7-11, will take place on the grounds of the Nova’s Ark Project—a sprawling sculpture park in Bridgehampton, New York. The chic, 100,000-square-foot pavilion will house over seventy leading galleries, including Adelson Galleries, Taylor Graham, and Trinity House Paintings. This will be Adelson Galleries’ first year exhibiting at Art Southampton. Adam Adelson, Director of Adelson Galleries Boston, says, “We showed with Art Miami at the recent Art New York fair and we had a very positive experience working with them. We are going to do the Art Miami Context fair in December and thought that Art Southampton fit nicely between the two shows. We have heard great things about the fair so we’re excited to participate this year.”

Art Southampton will present works from iconic artists as well as emerging talents and offerings will span a range of media, from paintings and sculptures to video art. In Adelson Galleries’ booth, Federico Uribe’s dazzling bullet sculptures will appear beside atmospheric landscapes by Jacob Collins and works by Andrew and Jamie Wyeth. Adelson says, “Federico’s works seem kind of fitting given what’s going on around the world—all of the violence and tragedy—as well as the fact that he’s from Colombia, which has been in the news recently because of the Peace Treaty. We also decided to bring some works by the Wyeths because it’s representative of what my father, Warren Adelson, is known for. He has been showing the Wyeths’ work since the 1970s and we wanted to bring some artists that reflect our gallery’s history."

Meanwhile, Taylor Graham will present a spectacular array of abstract works by a number of modern and contemporary masters, including Robert Motherwell, Esteban Vicente, and Roger Phillips, and Trinity House Paintings will offer a curated selection of sea-inspired paintings, including an oil on canvas of yachts racing during the America's Cup in San Francisco by Jamie Medlin and an austere painting of a boat by Andrew Wyeth.

Art Southampton will kick off with a posh VIP Preview Party benefiting the nearby Parrish Art Museum and Southampton Hospital. Additional programming highlights include the New York Academy of Art exhibition, which will be co-curated by the actress Brooke Shields and Academy President David Kratz. The exhibit, Call of the Wild, will feature nature-inspired paintings and sculpture by Academy alumni. Be sure to catch the Let’s Talk Interior Design – Strategies for Art Lovers panel on Sunday, July 10, featuring interior designers Dale Cohen, Greg McKenzie, and Patricia Fisher. The speakers will discuss how designers stay ahead of the curve when it comes to art and design and how that knowledge is an invaluable tool for clients.
