Last Saturday, a diverse group of more than 50 art enthusiasts, collectors, gallerists, art advisors, museum professionals, and artists joined Hyperallergic for a day trip to the Hamptons.
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 to fly down to Miami mid-winter and relish the idea of a world class art fair right outside New York City.
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 effort to reach out to the next generation of collectors.
