“It’s been a boutique show since we started,” said co-organizer Max Fishko. “We look to provide an enjoyable, manageable experience.” A pick of only about 40 galleries, most from the East Coast, many from Manhattan and Long Island, will be showing works of art and exceptional pieces of design. While three-quarters will still be fine art, the rest will be functional works that emphasize “the handmade, the unique and the contemporary.” Museum-level craft will mingle with art on the walls.
Market Art + Design opens this Thursday, July 9th, bringing the best in modern and contemporary art and design to Bridgehampton’s Fairview Farm at Mecox Bay. The East End’s Premier Art Event will feature Brooklyn’s finest food and drink with Crown Heights’ institutions Morris Sandwich Shop and Glady’s Caribbean serving up frozen drinks and other great waterside specialities. Don’t miss the Market Art + Design Pavilion’s waterfront sculpture garden, chic lounges, and stunning presentations by forty of the country’s finest art and design galleries.
