ArtHamptons is back and better then ever in it sixth Hampton Season.
This year ArtHampton featured Seventy-five  prominent galleries from ten different nations. The  much anticipated event among Art Entusiast took place from July 11th through July14, with the VIP Opening Preview Party on July 11 benefitting Guild Hall.
 
The event featured “Forty Feet of Fashion—Larry Rivers: A Public Exhibition” that was on view, courtesy of Tibor De Nagy Gallery, as attendees walked between the legs of the artists’ most famous sculptures at the pavilion entrance. On Sunday, July 13 David Joel, Executive Director of the Larry Rivers Foundation, discussed the life and times of the late Southampton-based Larry Rivers.
 
On Opening night I was invited to HC&G Artists & Collectors VIP Party  by invitation only The event was hosted by HC&G (Hamptons Cottages & Gardens) celebrating Opening Preview night of ArtHamptons. Invited guests mixed and mingled with HC&G‘s editors, VIPs, artists and influencers to kick off the ultimate art event of the season.
CEO, Publication Director Marianne Howatson discussed the benefits of living in the Hamptons, a tranquil place for lovely homes, cottages and gardens.

I had a chance to interview many artists in particular legendary African American painter, sculptor and activist Faith Ringgold.
 
Ms. Ringgold was this year's recipient of the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award. 
 
After receiving the award Ms. Ringgold she discussed her art, vision, philosophy and  longtime activism. The artist is well known for her painted story quilts, which blurs the line between “high art” and “craft” by combining painting, quilted fabric, and storytelling – which date back to the 1960’s. She also discussed her experiences with her written and illustrated books originating with Tar Beach in 1991. Guests and VIPs mingled with the Hamptons elite collectors while enjoying cocktails. The event was hosted by the Houston Museum of African American Culture, with support from Harold Ford, Sr. and Leonard Jones.
