Market Art + Design.

Last year, Market Art + Design debuted a revamped identity to elite collectors, curators, and designers who flock to the Hamptons each summer to partake in the panoply of must-attend fairs, parties, and exhibitions. In addition to a new name (the show was previously known as Art Market Hamptons), Market Art + Design unveiled a thoughtfully curated design component. Conceived as a complement to the fair’s modern and contemporary art offerings, the addition aims to satisfy the growing demand for high-end and supremely stylish furniture and decor.

For the sixth edition of Market Art + Design, held July 7-10 on the grounds of the Bridgehampton Museum, Market Art + Design’s founder—Art Market Productions—will partner with another art fair powerhouse, the Palm Beach Show Group. Under the new collaboration, the show will expand its reach to include jewelry and classical art. According to Scott Diament, President and CEO of the Palm Beach Show Group, “The opportunity to combine emerging contemporary artists with classical and traditional exhibitors was something that we definitely wanted to delve into. We are extremely excited to partner with Art Market Productions on this event and proud to bring the Palm Beach Show Group’s production and promotion expertise to the Hamptons.”

This year’s fair will feature fifty of the world’s top art and design dealers, including Alexander Gallery, The Hole, Lawrence Fine Art, Sundaram Tagore Gallery, and Villa del Arte. Highlights include a stunning figurative work by Egon Schiele courtesy of Galerie Fledermaus and bold, graphic pieces by Frank Stella and Greg Lamarche from ACA Galleries. Meanwhile, L’Antiquaire will be exhibiting a stellar selection of mid-century, Art Moderne, and Art Deco furniture, including a Murano glass ceiling fixture by Ercole Barovier, a pair of flower-adorned vases attributed to Archimedes Seguso, and an étagère table in rosewood veneer. Market Art + Design will also include The Jewelbox—a dedicated section for leading jewelry dealers. Among the select exhibitors are Jacob’s Diamond and Estate Jewelry, YAFA Signed Jewels, and Pat Saling, who will be exhibiting a number of dazzling Art Deco pieces as well as a silver necklace by Alexander Calder.
