Inaugural Art Southampton Proving Big Draw for Young Collectors
Scores of Young Contemporaries to Attend Special Events at Art Southampton Pavilion
The Inaugural Edition of Art Southampton presented by Art Miami July 26-30 is proving to be catnip for savvy young collectors and groups from up and down the East Coast. Many of the individuals and groups are very familiar with the Art Miami style of presentation and are eagerly looking forward to the fair. But there is also great excitement among first-timers, many of whom are too busy on Wall Street to fly down to Miami mid-winter and relish the idea of a world class art fair where they summer.
Art Southampton has already won the support of numerous prominent collectors, philanthropists and major art world figures, who call The Hamptons home, many of whom are serving on its prestigious Host Committee. They have also made a concerted to reach out to the next generation of collectors.
On Thursday, July 26, there will be a special reception for the members of the Harvard Business School of New York during the VIP Preview which benefits Southampton Hospital from 6PM to 10PM.
On Friday July 27, ARTLOG is sponsoring a Young Contemporaries event for Whitney Contemporaries, Museum of Modern Art Junior Associates and Columbia Alumni Arts Patrons in Art Southampton’s elegant VIP Lounge from 7:30PM -9PM, followed by an after Party at the very hot Southampton Social Club beginning at 9PM.
Also on Friday, Hedge Funds Care Young Professionals are invited to kickoff their Behind the Hedges Fundraiser the following evening at Art Southampton.
The Museum of Arts and Design has organized a group visit for Friday and The Contemporaries will be visiting on Saturday July 28. Members of ArtTable will also be attending the fair, as well as, many other prominent groups.
The inaugural Art Southampton presented by Art Miami, the premiere International Contemporary & Modern Art Fair and marketplace for acquiring the finest works of art available in the Hamptons, will make its long - and eagerly - awaited Hamptons’ debut at the height of the social and cultural season this summer.
The fair will take place from July 26-30, 2012 in a state-of-the-art 75,000 square foot Pavilion located on the sprawling 18-acre fairgrounds behind the Southampton Elks Lodge, 605 County Road 39, Southampton, New York 11968, adjacent to the Southampton Golf Club, located directly off Route 27 A. The fair will commence on Thursday evening, July 26, 2012 with a highly-anticipated Opening Night VIP Preview benefiting Southampton Hospital.
Like its sister fair Art Miami, which has for over 22 years distinguished itself for presenting the finest in modern and contemporary art and become a not-to-be-missed opportunity for collectors, art advisors, museum directors, curators, artists, connoisseurs, and interior designers, Art Southampton will feature a carefully selected group of 50 international art galleries, with a strong focus on primary artists and select secondary market works.
