The annual fine art fair ArtHamptons will take place over Independence Day weekend this summer at a private estate on Lumber Lane in Bridgehampton—about a mile east of its former site at Nova’s Ark Project Sculpture Fields.
ArtHamptons was originally expecting to return to Nova’s Ark and be held on its traditional weekend, one week after Fourth of July weekend. But competing fair Art Southampton reserved the location and date instead.
The ArtHamptons opening night preview—one of the highlights of the Hamptons summer for many years—will be held on Thursday, July 2. Then the show will be open to the public from Friday, July 3, through Sunday, July 5.
More than 60 galleries representing 14 countries will participate, showcasing international Post-War and Contemporary art.
Ruth Appelhoff, the executive director of Guild Hall, will be presented with ArtHamptons’ 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award during a reception on Sunday, July 5.
Guild Hall and Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation will both be beneficiaries of the eighth annual ArtHamptons.
