Market Art + Design Returns

Tue, 08/03/2021 - 07:20
Benrimon Editions will bring Roy Lichtenstein's screenprint "Thinking Nude," from 1994, to the Market Art + Design Fair next week.

Art Market Productions' Market Art + Design fair will return to the Bridgehampton Museum next week, featuring galleries and several installation programs geared toward the East End. Absent last year from the South Fork art scene, the show's return will feature several galleries new to the show, an installation from the first artist to tag a New York subway car, and expanded parking.
"Our viewers can expect to see a huge survey, across a huge variety of price points," said Kelly Freeman, who screens the galleries for the show and serves as events director for Art Market Productions (AMP). "People can come in to buy pieces at $3,000 or $300,000."
Participating East End galleries or dealers include: AB NY Gallery, Chase Contemporary, Chase Edwards Contemporary, Contempop Presents: Bob Tabor, Gurdal Bibo Fine Art, Keyes Art, Karyn Mannix Contemporary, Lawrence Fine Art, Lynn Savarese Photography, Mark Borghi, MM Fine Art, Monika Olko Gallery, Quogue Gallery, the White Room Gallery, and VSOP Projects.
The fair will kick off with an evening preview next Thursday. An outdoor sculpture gallery will greet visitors before they enter the tent. In the center lounge, attendees will lock eyes with a giant shark sculpture of found metal objects by the Los Angeles artist RISK, a former graffiti artist and the above-mentioned subway car tagger. The Benrimon Editions and Vertu Fine Art galleries will have a collaborative booth in the front of the fair.
The 80 galleries will present a mix of modern and contemporary art. Several galleries are first timers to Market Art + Design, including some international dealers from Canada, Japan, and Mexico City.
Noting the museums here and as well as all the opportunities to see art in New York City, Ms. Freeman, who has a house in East Hampton, said "I feel like I can push the boundaries a little bit and give people art that can be a little challenging." She added that she sees visitors coming to the fair both "to learn and to buy and I think about that."
The fair runs through Aug. 15. Tickets are available at and start at $25 for a one-day pass. For $50 one can buy a fair pass, which includes entrance to the opening evening Next Thursday, as well as all public days.
