   Traffic was a snarl and parking a challenge at the Art Southampton VIP preview on Thursday night. Once inside and away from the damp, drizzly night, viewers had a chance to see a temporary tent city of beautiful people and objects, oh and art, too.

Missy Costanza was "Pop"-ular with her mother Barbara Costanza in front of one painting lampooning the culture of Wall Street.
Graffiti art continues to be a draw for collectors, such as this example by Copez Cest Kid presented by Dorian Grey Gallery of New York City. It was enjoyed by Audrey and Olga Grudin.
