SOUTHAMPTON, NY,  -- From July 10 to 12, 2009, the Hamptons, New York, will host the second edition of ArtHamptons, the only fine art fair in the Hamptons for museum-quality modern and contemporary art. Sixty-four leading galleries from the USA, Canada and Europe are bringing $200 million worth of art. They will be showcasing all forms of artistic expression. With the paintings, drawings, watercolors, photography and sculpture of the 20th and 21st centuries offered, ArtHamptons will have the range, depth and quality of any fair nationwide. More than 5,000 art lovers are expected to visit the international art show. Prices will range from two thousand dollars for multiples and works by younger artists to four million dollars for museum-quality masterpieces.


In the inaugural 2008 year, 5,000 art enthusiasts streamed through ArtHamptons fulfilling its promise as one of the highlights of The Hamptons cultural and social calendar. With its proximity to New York City  and the centers of the finance, entertainment, design, architecture, fashion and celebrity businesses, the ArtHamptons galleries buzzed with an art lovers and collectors scene reminiscent and referred to by many attendees as the “mini-ArtBasel” of the Hamptons. ArtHamptons is strategically located in the center of The Hamptons in Bridgehampton (one of the ten top wealth zip codes in America, according to Forbes), on the grounds of the Bridgehampton Historical Society.


“It’s a great time to buy important artworks,” said Rick Friedman, chairman, ArtHamptons, Southampton, “because primary and secondary market prices have adjusted and there are great treasures to be had and very fair prices. And you can enjoy them daily on your walls. Art is a lot more interesting and tangible now than your stock portfolio.”


The Hamptons during the past century has been home or studio for 600 “important” American and internationally recognized artists. The East End has been a fertile terrain for serious and intelligent art buying and art patronage. ArtHamptons discussions again will feature prominent art-world personalities, while artists Jane Wilson, Elliott Erwitt and Lillian Bassman will be honored with “lifetime achievement” awards and dedicated wall displays of their careers and works. Visitors can also look forward to exciting programs such as visits to private art collections, preview party, and artists’ book signings.


On the eve of the opening on July 9, invited guests will attend the exclusive Collectors Preview benefiting East Hampton’s Guild Hall Museum that includes an auction of a Jennifer Bartlett print donated by the Nikola Rukaj Gallery.


ArtHamptons is picking an exciting mix of 64 galleries for this year’s show. Exhibitions will include group and solo shows from younger artists to historical figures including William Glackens, Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, Georgia O’Keefe, Fairfield Porter, Larry Rivers, Jane Freilicher and Augustus St. Gaudens.


Said Ray Waterhouse, director of Waterhouse & Dodd, “We exhibited at the inaugural ArtHamptons in 2008 and we’re delighted to be coming back. We made some sales last year and were also pleased with the number of terrific new contacts. I think the fair will become an established feature of summer in The Hamptons and will be a must-see for collectors.”

ArtHamptons Lifetime Achievement Awards for Painting and Photography


This year ArtHamptons is presenting the ArtHamptons Lifetime Achievement Award for painting to artist Jane Wilson and the photography awards to Elliott Erwitt and Lillian Bassman.


Jane Wilson is regarded among the deans of landscape painting. Most of her recent paintings have been inspired by the sky, sea, and land of the East End of Long Island. She is represented at ArtHamptons by the DC Moore Gallery (NY).


Elliott Erwitt is one of the 20th century’s most celebrated photographers. His unmistakable, often witty style gives us a snapshot of the famous and the ordinary, the strange and the mundane, through the lens of one of our era’s finest image-makers. He is represented at ArtHamptons by Hackelbury Fine Art Ltd. (London, U.K.).

Lillian Bassman is a master photographer of fashion and the modern woman. Her style evokes the sensual, feminine, romantic woman. She is represented at ArtHamptons by Peter Fetterman Gallery (Santa Monica, CA).

Jane Wilson
(b.1924) is regarded among the deans of landscape painting. Her luminous landscapes hover between abstraction and representation. She focuses on events of the natural world—seasons of the year, times of day, and the many moods of the weather. Evoking these constant occurrences, she directs her energies to making the ephemeral visible, to capturing the effects of shimmering light, heavy air, and passing thunderstorms. In many of her works, the sky, which can just as easily be taken as an abstract field of pattern and color, is anchored by the barest rudiments of recession and a low horizon that is a juncture of light and substance. Most of her recent paintings have been inspired by the sky, sea, and land of the East End of Long Island. “Jane Wilson: Horizons,” (Elisabeth Sussman, Merrell Publishers) will be released October 2009.

Elliott Erwitt (b.1928) has been taking pictures for over fifty years. Photographing all over the world, his images have been the subject of countless books and exhibitions. His unmistakable, often witty style gives us a snapshot of the famous and the ordinary, the strange and the mundane, through the lens of one of our era’s finest image-makers. Elliott Erwitt was invited to join Magnum Photos in 1953 by Robert Capa. One of the leading figures in the competitive field of magazine photography, Erwitt’s journalistic essays, illustrations and advertisements have been featured in publications around the world for more than forty years.

Lillian Bassman (b 1917) is a master photographer of fashion and the modern woman. Her style evokes the sensual, feminine, romantic woman. Bassman sought, as she said, ‘to photograph fashion with a woman’s eye for a woman’s intimate feelings.’ Bassman used the medium of fashion photography with an artist’s eye to convey a woman’s gesture, intimacy, seductiveness, dreaminess. Her fashion photographs did not rely on beautiful models and clothes as the essence. She printed through gauze, tissue, careful ‘burning in’ on certain image areas and bleaching sections to create an image with strands of light. Bassman was a photographer for Harper’s Bazaar from 1946 to 1971 when she closed her photography studio, although she continued her personal photographic projects.
