Market Art + Design opens tonight (July 7, 2016) with a VIP Preview and continues on view through July 10, 2016 on the grounds of the Bridgehampton Museum. Before the doors open, Hamptons Art Hub surveyed some of the galleries exhibiting and asked gallerists to pick artworks that shouldn't be missed and queried what they will be presenting and how their booth relates to their gallery program. Selections ranged from cutting edge contemporary to second generation Abstract Expressionism. In all cases, gallery booths at Market Art + Design offer a survey of artists featured recently in exhibitions or is representative of their gallery programs.

VICTORI + MO - Brooklyn

"This year in the Hamptons we will be exhibiting gallery artists Brian Willmont, Langdon Graves, and Eric Standley," wrote managing partner Ed Victori. "Brian's expansive solo at the gallery took place in February-March and was coupled with our solo presentation of him at VOLTA NY '16.  Langdon's solo was among the highlights of our spring calendar taking place over May-June and received some wonderful press. Lastly, Eric Standley has just come off of a full year of museum exhibitions ranging from solos at VA MOCA, the Sharjah in Abu Dhabi and the CODA in the Netherlands, to recent/current installation projects at the Taubman Museum."

"These three artists represent the bridge across thoughtful conception and exhaustive process-oriented execution that the gallery prides itself on presenting through immersive exhibitions," he continued. "Whether through the use of layered exacted painting (Willmont), intensely narrative-based graphite drawings & sculpture (Graves) or hundreds of finely cut layers of paper (Standley), these artists, to us, represent the pinnacle of their respective crafts and visions."

With a concentration on three artists, all three are already favorite picks by the gallery.

Walker Waugh Art - Brooklyn

Walker Waugh Art features Hector Leonardi, a second generation American Abstract artist, who is now based in Bridgehampton. Leonardi's work was the subject of a recent solo show (May 31 - June 30, 2016) presented at Peninsula Art Space by Walker Waugh Art. The gallery hosts a Studio Tour to the painter's studio on Sunday, blending the art fair experience with a personal one with the artist.

"Stylistically, Leonardi's work blends European Modernism with Abstract Expressionism, and reflects a synthesis of diverse influences including Albers, Gustav Klimt, Paul Signac, and Jackson Pollack," according to the gallery. "Over the past decade, working from his studio in Bridgehampton, Leonardi has been in a sustained period of creativity and experimentation. During this time, he has developed an innovative technical approach to his paintings, incorporating the application of strips of acrylic paint onto the canvas to produce some of the most elegantly restrained, intricately layered color field abstractions of his 45 year career."

"My intention in the exhibition of works presented for Market Art and Design is to create a vibrant visual conversation between lively, colorful wall works and a variety of objects," wrote gallerist Mindy Solomon. "The intersection of 2 and 3 dimensional works is of great interest to me and has broad implications in collecting contemporary art and interior design."

The gallery will exhibit 3-dimensional works by Andrew Casto, Lauren Mabry, and Lee Kang Hyo. Two-dimensional works by artists: Glauko Alizara, Ryota Unno, and Pablo Griss.
