Path To The Presidency to MARKET ART + DESIGN: Hamptons Arts Events Summer 2017

Kicking off summer 2017 with art events — RAM’s highlights June/July

Path to the Presidency Exhibition Opening @ The Bridgehampton Museum (6/2)

Path To The Presidency: George Washington to Donald Trump, an exhibition that investigates and explores how some of America’s most notable leaders utilized mass-market campaign strategies in their push to the White House, could not be more relevant today in the age of Trump. Currently on view at the Bridgehampton Museum’s Corwith House, in collaboration with the Museum of Democracy and the Wright Family Collection, which consists of the largest most comprehensive collection in the world of American Political and Historical memorabilia with over 1.2 million objects. The exhibition will run through October at the Corwith House (2368 Montauk Highway)

On the same grounds of Path To The Presidency is the Market Art + Design Fair. How convenient! This is what I love about the Hamptons.

Returning for its seventh edition, the 2017 Market Art + Design Fair displayed its largest show yet. I’ve ran into many friends–artists, dealers, and art enthusiasts–at the VIP preview on Thursday, July 6th. Hope to see many more of you throughout the fair this weekend!

If you are near Watermill, make your way down to the Parrish Art Museum to catch the John Graham exhibition before it closes at the end of this month.

John Graham: Maverick Modernist @ Parrish Art Museum (5/7 – 7/30)

A must-show exhibition currently on view at the Parrish Art Museum. Graham, an Ukrain-born painter, immigrated to NY in the ’20s and soon established himself as an influential figure in the modern American art scene. He came to the Hampton’s in the ’50s and was deeply connected to the East End artists, such as Pollock & Krasner, de Koonings, and Fairfield Porter, whose exhibition is also on view in the adjacent gallery. I couldn’t agree with Art News review  more. It’s a truly stellar show.

John D. Graham, “Head of a Woman”, 1954. Oil, chalk, ballpoint pen, colored pencil, pencil, brush, pen, and ink on tracing paper, 24 1/4 x 18 7/8 inches.
