All of the stars have aligned in a vortex of Hamptons events this weekend which gives new meaning to “there’s something for everyone.”


Thursday July 8 – Sunday July 11


With 95 galleries from all over the world, the people watching is as much fun as perusing the incredibly diverse post-war and contemporary art work.  For the avid collector or art nubie there is a feast for the eyes and for the mind with various lectures, book signings, and chances to meet the artists as well as food and beverage and live music.

Thursday July 8 6pm – 9pm is the opening to benefit the LongHouse Reserve public programs.  The incredible gallery, arboretum, and sculpture gardens in East Hampton are one of our local artistic treasures.
