About Hamptons Art Hub

HAMPTONS ART HUB is an online publication and website revealing visual arts in The Hamptons and New York City along with highlights from the NY Metropolitan area and South Florida (Miami and Palm Beach). We publish reviews, features, artist profiles, news, exhibition previews, art fair coverage, select cultural events and guides on where to find art in our coverage areas. Special areas of focus in the NY Tri-State includes Long Island, Westchester County and the Mid-Hudson in New York and Fairfield County in Connecticut.

At Hamptons Art Hub, our editorial is created by a well-respected and experienced team of art critics and journalists. Our writers are steeped in the art world and present their insights in a clear manner designed to engage art fans, collectors, art world professionals, artists and anyone interested in discovering contemporary and modern art.

Steady columns include the East End Gallery Scene (exhibition receptions on the East End), Gallery Shows to Know (noteworthy new exhibitions in NYC or the East End) and our Things to Do columns for NYC and the East End of Long Island. Art Seen (a periodic social feature presenting benefits and art parties) keeps things lively while our Design & Art Book column makes sure the newest titles worth reading are easy to find.

Our Directory Listings include Art Fairs, Artists and Art Services while our Art Guide provides an extensive list of galleries and museums in The Hamptons, New York City, Long Island and South Florida. Our Exhibition Finder provides a curated list of shows on view in a searchable format.

WHO WE ARE

PAT ROGERS is an award-winning arts journalist, publisher and managing editor of Hamptons Art Hub. Rogers has been writing about art and culture in the Hamptons since 1997.

Rogers founded Hamptons Art Hub in 2012 to foster awareness of the visual arts in The Hamptons and East End of Long Island and subsequently expanded the publication's focus to include the art communities of New York City and South Florida (Miami and Palm Beach County in particular). In light of the New York Times decision to cease arts coverage in the NY Metropolitan area in September 2016, Hamptons Art Hub's most recent expansion (January 2017) embraces a focus on visual art on Long Island and Westchester County in New York and Fairfield County in CT as the first steps to revealing highlights from the entire NY Metropolitan area.
