Market Art + Design, 2017.
Market Art + Design, the East End’s premier and longest-running art and design fair, has announced its return to the Bridgehampton Museum from August 12-15. Built into the fair’s expanded, museum-quality pavilion in the center of Bridgehampton, Market Art + Design’s 11th edition will feature 80 top galleries presenting modern and contemporary art and design alongside a program of partnerships and public projects, expanding the fair out into its shared spaces. Tickets can be purchased at artmarkethamptons.com.
This summer’s event is slated to rival 2019, which saw Market Art + Design’s biggest show to date. With a renewed sense of community after the past year, this year’s event will feature a strong list of local galleries that have defined the region for the last few decades. Alongside the local exhibitions, the event will feature modern and contemporary dealers from around the country that will introduce this super-engaged audience to new galleries and new artists.
Highlights from this year’s exhibitors include: David Benrimon Fine Art, Mark Borghi, CAM Galeria, MM Fine Art, Sugarlift, Marloe Gallery, Jerald Melberg Gallery, Timothy Yarger Fine Art, Vertu Fine Art, Sponder Gallery, VSOP Projects, Jan Kath and DMD Contemporary, and others to be announced soon.
Wide aisles and generous public areas allow attendees to step back and absorb the artistry around them, and will also create a safe and comfortable environment for patrons to celebrate the return of the event and a sense of pre-pandemic normalcy.
The 11th edition of Market Art + Design runs August 12-15 on the grounds of the Bridgehampton Museum, 2368 Montauk Highway. The show opens with a VIP preview from 1 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, August 12, and opening evening follows from 5 to 9 p.m. Public hours are Friday and Saturday, August 13-14, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, August 15, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Purchase tickets at artmarkethamptons.com.
