Art Market Hamptons, previously known as Market Art + Design, will return to the East End for its 12th iteration next Thursday at a new location, Nova's Ark Project in Bridgehampton, with 90 galleries showing works from throughout the United States and abroad.
This year's East End participants include Karyn Mannix Contemporary from East Hampton, Chase Contemporary from New York City and East Hampton, MM Fine Art from Southampton, Monika Olko from Sag Harbor, the White Room from Bridgehampton, and VSOP Projects from Greenport.
Among the special installations is Mary Mattingly's "Swimmer," a sculpture presented by Alessandro Berni Gallery of New York City and Perugia, Italy. The work is a stylized overhead view of a life-sized swimmer, fabricated in a thin sheet of aluminum and painted in Pace Car Blue. Ms. Mattingly divides her time between Hampton Bays and the city.
VSOP Projects will feature "Worth and Weight," Morgan Hobbs's sculptural installation of ruins fashioned almost entirely from recycled materials, assembled and coated in pulverized newspaper.
The opening night preview will be held from 6 to 9 next Thursday. Public hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 12, and Aug. 13; and 11 to 6 on Aug. 14. A fair pass, which includes the opening and all public hours, is $50; a public day ticket is $25.
