4,000 Works by 500 Artists Represented by 77 Galleries from 10 Countries
July 7 – 10, 2011

Southampton, NY, 6/20/11 - From July 7 through July 10, 2011, the fourth edition of ArtHamptons, the international art show of modern, post-modern and contemporary works, will return to Bridgehampton.

ArtHamptons will be a tightly vetted show as the number of galleries will be reduced to 77 in order to provide fairgoers a more cogent, manageable viewing and art- buying experience. There will be 4,000 artworks and 500 artists represented. International galleries will be from Israel, Korea, Japan, Greece, U.K. Canada, Spain, China, and Finland.

U.S. galleries will include Abby M Taylor Fine Art, Arcadia Fine Arts, C. Grimaldis Gallery, Caldwell Snyder Gallery, Catherine Edelman Gallery, Cernuda Arte, Danziger Projects, Eli Klein Gallery, Finch & Ada, Jackson Fine Art, Jenkins Johnson Gallery, Jerald Melberg Gallery, June Kelly Gallery, Katharina Rich Perlow Gallery, McCormick Gallery, Robert Klein Gallery, Throckmorton Fine Art, KIWI Arts Group, Vincent Vallarino Fine Art, Waterhouse & Dodd, and Westwood Gallery. Local Hamptons dealers will include Mark Borghi Fine Art, Richard Demato Fine Arts Gallery, Keszler Gallery, Tulla Booth Gallery, Eric Firestone Gallery, and McNeill Art Group.

The Galleries will showcase paintings, drawings, sculptures, art glass, and photography. Prices will range from a thousand to several million dollars for museum-quality pieces. As a benchmark, last year's show sales in the $20,000 to $50,000 range predominated and amounted to $6 million. During the four-day run, 8,000 visitors attended, establishing the show as one of the highlights of the Hamptons' summer season.

ArtHamptons will inaugurate photoHamptons, a fresh focus on fine art photography. As the largest selection of fine art photography ever offered in the Hamptons, photoHamptons is designed to encourage and stimulate Hamptonites to buy and collect the medium. Historically, the Hamptons has been considered a serious photography buying marketplace, but before now has offered few venues with museum-level work. Limited to a dozen elite photo dealers, fairgoers will experience the finest in vintage, contemporary, modern, and post modern as well as photo-based art and video. Sponsored by Aperture Foundation and photograph magazine, the photo dealers will include Danziger Projects (exhibiting a new collection of iconic pictures of Kate Moss from photographers including Chuck Close and Annie Leibovitz), John Cleary Gallery, Throckmorton Fine Art, Tulla Booth Gallery, Finch & Ada, Robert Klein Gallery, Cavalier Galleries, KIWI Arts Group, and Catharine Edelman Gallery. They will be located throughout the ArtHamptons building

"ArtHamptons has emerged as one the premier summer must-attend events," said Rick Friedman, founder, Hamptons Expo Group and ArtHamptons, Southampton. "Hamptonites and art lovers have come to appreciate and look forward to experiencing the selection of significant fine art in the dynamic global art marketplace that we create for four days. With the rebounding Hamptons economy, driven by record bonuses on Wall Street this year, we expect the level of serious art buying to exceed last year."

There will be a British invasion with 11 U.K. galleries exhibiting, more than double from the year before. They will be Alicia David Contemporary, Cube Gallery, Cynthia Corbett Gallery, Fine Art Consultancy, Long & Ryle, Northcote Gallery, Woolff Gallery, Waterhouse & Dodd (London and NY), HackelBury Fine Art Ltd., Rebecca Hossack Art, and Turner Barnes Gallery.

For instance, Woolff Gallery will be bringing Russell West's "Slow Big Bang," conceived to represent the Big Bang theory. A colored board was placed on a wheel and each day a wire was added and paint dripped down the wire. The work was dried overnight, the wheel was turned a fraction and the process was repeated every day for a year. On November 7, 2010, the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland created a mini big bang. ad the similarities were amazing, according to the gallery.

Long & Ryle Gallery will be showing paintings by Spanish artist Ramiro Fernandez Saus and Katharine Morling, to  name a few. The light in Ramiro Fernandez Saus’ paintings has an extraordinary character. By day, it varies from the pale clarity of an equatorial morning to the glow of languid Mediterranean afternoons. Regardless of the light source it has the same effect: transporting the scenes that Ramiro depicts from reality to a dream world of heightened feeling. Ramiro captures the imaginative thrill of discovering unexplored lands, stunning sea voyages and inventive interiors. It is Ramiro’s subject matter that the distinguished painter Craigie Aitchison loved.

Katharine Morling creates animated scenes with an unusually dynamic appearance for the medium of ceramics. Morling describes these objects as three- dimensional ‘sketches’ and the true nature of the material is at first, not immediately clear: paper or fabric? It is only through touching the sculptures the viewer discovers the material is clearly ceramic. Morling’s aim is to bring dreamscapes to life by creating physical artifacts. Morling was awarded the ‘European Triennial of Ceramics and Glass’ in Brussels.

Waterhouse & Dodd will return with its stellar lineup of contemporary artists including Jean-Francois Rauzier, Jeremy Duncan, and Robi Walters. British artist Jonathan McCree's new landscapes paintings that question ideas of what a landscape may consist of, and test our aesthetic, historical and theoretical ideals, will be shown by Northcote Gallery.

Abstract Expressionist painter Mary Abbott will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award that honors excellence in visual art. Now in her 90s, Abbott has created a powerful body of work in which she combines spontaneous, gestural brushwork with a highly creative use of color. She resides and maintains her studio in Southampton. Meet Mary Abbott on Saturday, July 9, from 12 noon to 2 p.m., in our Collector’s Lounge.

Legendary Hamptons artist Peter Dayton is using digital photography to create his iconic surfboard imagery on a 2012 VW Touareg produced especially for ArtHamptons 2011. Sponsored by Volkswagen and hosted by artnet. Peter Dayton's other art works will be displayed in the Mark Borghi Fine Art booth.
 There will be a Northeast premiere of the short film: "Full Circle: Before they Were Famous," featuring Warhol superstars Ultra Violet and Taylor Mead who will be present to meet and greet and sign their books. The documentary chronicles the astonishing journey of the images taken by fine art photographer William John Kennedy in the early 1960's of Robert Indiana and Andy Warhol with their iconic works. The negatives sat in a box for nearly 50 years, rarely seen by the world or his subjects until now. The film is full of personal anecdotes and remembrances by many of the principals of the story, and includes appearances by Indiana, Ultra Violet, and Mead as they view their images for the first time. The film is a presentation of the KIWI Arts Group. 

Russell Simmons, media mogul and philanthropist, Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, and Danny Simmons, visual artist and philanthropist (RPAF), will receive the Art Patrons of the Year Award. Russell will sign copies of his new book “Super Rich: A Guide to Having It All.” "Art saves lives, it's that simple," says Russell Simmons who will be present along with his brother Danny Simmons, on July 9, 5 pm to 6 pm, to receive the award and to hold the book signing of both of their latest works.

The Opening Preview Party will be held on July 7, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m, and the proceeds once again will go to LongHouse Reserve. Last year, the show's opening drew 1,500 art collectors and guests from around the Hamptons, New York and beyond.

Most of the Hamptons' arts and cultural organizations will be exclusively supporting and promoting ArtHamptons as cultural partners. They are the Parrish Art Museum, Guild Hall, Pollock-Krasner House & Study Center, LongHouse Reserve, Hamptons International Film Festival, Ross School, The Jewish Center of the Hamptons, Children's Museum of the East End, Southampton Fresh Air Home, and Heckscher Museum of Art.

The USA Network, a sponsor to ArtHamptons, will use ArtHamptons as a central theme for an upcoming episode of “Royal Pains”. The hit TV show is about a doctor that makes house calls in the Hamptons. Since attending ArtHamptons is one of the highlights of the Hamptons social and cultural summer season, USA Network considers it is an ideal backdrop setting to convey the ultimate Hamptons experience. The twist is, they are not shooting inside the actual fair in Bridgehampton, but rebuilding and reenacting a portion of the ArtHamptons Opening  Preview Gala scene with their stars on their set in an undisclosed location. 

These partnerships are expected to increase the attendance to surpass last year's record. Beneficiaries of a portion of the ticket sales will be the Guild Hall Museum, Bridgehampton Historical Society and Parrish Art Museum, respectively.

Celebrity spotting has become a sport at ArtHamptons as exhibitors had the pleasure of meeting "famous art lovers" including Kelsey Grammer, Joy Behar, Connie Chung, Rosanna Scotto, Jon Bon Jovi and Edward Albee. The scene is reminiscent of and referred to by attendees as "the mini-Art Basel" of the Hamptons.

Special Events will include:

  • ·        Screenings of the short film Full Circle: Before they Were Famous, featuring Warhol superstars Ultra Violet and Taylor Mead. Ultra Violet and Taylor Mead will be part of the panel discussion following the screenings of the film, and will be signing a limited edition print of them photographed by William John Kennedy in 1964. Additionally, Ultra Violet will be signing copies of her international best seller, “Famous for 15 Minutes, My Years with Andy Warhol” at 4 pm, Saturday, July 9 in the Collectors Lounge.

Scope Basel June 15-19


Collectrium Powers SCOPE Basel

Basel, Switzerland -- Thanks to Collectrium-a new "next-gen" mobile technology that recognizes works of art-collectors and collectors-to-be at this summer's gathering of art world glitterati in Basel will experience art as never before at SCOPE Basel (Tuesday, June 14 to Sunday, June 19, 2011).

Collectrium is part of a new generation of art enthusiasts, looking to change the way people learn about and collect art via new innovations in technology.  With Collectrium's mobile app, a visitor to the fairs will be able to point her iPhone or iPad at any registered artwork and instantly receive extensive information on the artist and the piece; add the artwork to her "My Collection" favorites; share with friends via Facebook, Twitter, and email; and contact the gallery about the artwork.

Tapped as one of 'America's Most Promising Start-ups' by Bloomberg BusinessWeek (4/15/11), the Collectrium mobile app has been warmly embraced by gallerists around the world since its launch in Basel last June.  With Collectrium, visitors to any of the Basel fairs, including Art Basel, no longer have to make scribbled notes on postcards and flyers. The collector can leave the fair with a browsable list of her favorite artworks on her mobile device, complete with detailed information on each work, artist, exhibiting gallery, and personal notes - in effect creating her own personalized virtual gallery and catalogue of the fair.  Collectrium also functions as a QR code scanner, so for sculpture, installation, moving image pieces, or any work with a QR code on the label, visitors can use Collectrium to scan the QR code to identify works of art.

"Collectrium's image recognition capability is absolutely unique.  It's one reason I see them as the leader in the new breed of mobile and social applications for the art world," said Alexis Hubshman, Founder and President of the SCOPE Art Fair.

"This is a social art management system, part of the next generation of tools for appreciating art," says Boris Pevzner, the former Silicon Valley entrepreneur who founded Collectrium. "Our app makes the experience of visiting an art fair more interactive for the art lover-enhancing the on-site visit, while also allowing visitors to take the fair home with them."

In addition to using the Collectrium app to automatically identify artworks, visitors to the participating fairs will browse the entire art show catalogue on their mobile device;
enter images, details and personal notes about works of art not already registered in the system; and view all the programming and scheduling information about the fairs.
Pevzner concludes: "We've created a bridge between the physical and virtual art worlds by bringing the power of online technology to that live moment of discovery."

Furthermore, the visitors who manage their own private collections using Collectrium will have easy access to their artworks through the same mobile app, alongside the artworks exhibited at the art fairs.

About Collectrium
Founded by Boris Pevzner in 2009, Collectrium is a New York-based company providing innovative technology for discovering and displaying art on the web and mobile devices, including the revolutionary art identification and art similarity tools.  Over time, the Collectrium team-which has extensive expertise in the fields of in technology, finance, and the contemporary arts-will offer collectors and galleries integrated services for art storage, appraisals, financing and other needs.

Pevzner's business ventures are built around a deep understanding of how different kinds of communities can be enhanced and transformed through innovative technology solutions.

Pevzner holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He was born in St. Petersburg, only a stone's throw away from The Hermitage.

This year's Basel edition of SCOPE, June 15-19, 2011, in historic Kaserne just blocks from Art Basel 42, presents 85 international galleries upholding its unique tradition of solo and thematic group shows presented alongside museum-quality programming, collector tours, screenings, and special events. The unique SCOPE experience expands this year in partnership with Kaserne's cultural organizations, featuring: film, music, theatre and performance.
