Thousands of contemporary art lovers and  collectors assembled at the stunningly picturesque and world-renowned  pastoral grounds of Nova’s Ark Project in Southampton for the fourth and by far largest edition of
Art Southampton, presented by Art-Miami.

More than 5,200 collectors, designers, art advisors and both local and 

international media convened at the massive 100,000-square-foot pavilion  

experienced the most extraordinary and innovative contemporary artworks 

from over 90 of the world’s most prestigious galleries.


Upon arriving, guests were treated to the visually arresting large-scale 

contemporary art sculpture fields of the Nova’s Ark Project – the backdrop 

of this year’s new and resoundingly improved fair location, based on 

attendees’ reactions. From there, guests walked through the equally 

stunning sculpture garden designed by LaGuardia Design and supported by 

Summerhill Landscape, featuring works by Paul Oberst (Banded Poles/Long 

Island Four), David Hayes (Totem, Group), Boaz Vaadia (Baraq with Cat), 

Sam Tufnell (Power Gnomes), Heiner Mayer (Garden Kelly), Hamilton 

Aguiar (It’s a Girl!) Tuki Moses (Off) and others, with Cracking Art Group’s 

florescent pink, larger-than-life Giant Rabbit drawing hundreds of “selfies”. 


Inside, guests enjoyed Ruinart champagne and hors d’oeuvres by the 

Southampton Social Club while admiring the stunning display of precious 

jewels exhibited by sponsor Graff Diamonds. Christie’s International Real 

Estate played host to local and visiting East Enders with an eye-opening 

display of exclusive Hamptons and other international properties up for 



Among the international collectors attending were Howard Stern & Beth 

Ostrosky Stern, Miami Dolphin’s Owner Stephen and Wife Kara Ross, 

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani with his wife Judy,  author and 

playwright Joe Pintauro & partner Greg Therriault, Broadway producers 

Stewart Lane & Bonnie Comley, Tracy Pollan, wife of actor Michael J. Fox, 

internationally acclaimed architect Stephen Valentine, lecturer, author and 

Russian art collector Dr. Fredric Levine and his wife Marilyn, and many 

other collectors and notables including Norman and Irma Braman, Ted & 

Ruth Baum, Elayne Mordes, Kevin Berlin, Baroness Sheri de Barchgrave, 

Edwina Sandys, Graff Diamonds President Henri Barguirdjian, James 

Nederlander Sr., Joan & Jon Gruen, Gary & Katherine Andreassen, 

Melanie Wombold, Nicole Noonan, Randi Schatz, Sara Herbert-Galloway, 

Steve Bernstein, Sylvia Hemmingway, New York Academy of Art President 

David Kratz, Christie’s International Real Estate President Dan Conn, John 

Wegorzewski, Corey Goldman and  Directors of the Fair Nick Korniloff with 

Pamela Cohen many more.


The internationally acclaimed New York Academy of Art, of which Andy 

Warhol was among the original founders, once again partnered with Art 

Southampton, with renowned artist April Gornik as honor guest curator of 

exceptional alumni works.


Meantime, the worlds of art and music had an interesting convergence this 

year as Julian Lennon, son of the late John Lennon and a successful 

musician in his own right, had his artwork on display, as did Elton John 

collaborator Bernie Taupin, whose work was represented by Mark Borghi Fine Art.
