With the oppressive heat, Jene and I are heading out to ArtHamptons International Art Fair tomorrow. We will be attending the preview Thursday evening as VIP guests of Emmanuel Fremin Gallery which benefits the Long House Reserve. As emerging artists we feel it is very important to support the arts and the galleries whose mission it is to give artists the opportunity to exhibit (and sell) their works. Emmanuel Fremin Gallery is one such gallery exhibiting works of Drew Tal, Michel Giliberti, Thomas Barbey as well as others. At past openings we have met a number of the artists and have enjoyed conversations about art and life. There is a common bond among artists of all genres and mediums and that is to produce art that emotionally connects them to the viewers. The fine art fair runs from Friday the 9th through Sunday the 11th and I am sure it won’t disappoint art lovers and collectors. So if you are lucky enough to be out in the Hamptons this weekend, stop by booth 303 and meet the ever charming Emmanuel Fremin and his lovely Mary Nguyen. Daily passes to ArtHampton are available at the door for $15 or you can get e-Tickets by clicking on the link. This year ArtHamptons is being held at Sayre Park’s 5 bucolic acres. The site is located between Bridgehampton Commons and the Hamptons Classic field, just 1 block north of Montauk Highway on Snake Hollow Rd.
The list of exhibiters is lengthy and includes some of my favorite Metro NY galleries: A.I.R., Aperture Foundation, Black & White Gallery, Magnum Photos, Throckmorton Fine Arts.
So take a break from the sweltering heat, wander around the galleries, meet the curators and some of the artists that will be more than happy to discuss their work, art and philosphies.
Keep cool – Support the arts.
