Must-See Art Guide: The Hamptons
This week's guide features Mary Heilmann, Bob Thompson, Michael Boyd, and more.
What better place to celebrate the summer art scene than in the Hamptons? This year marks the seventh edition of the Market Art + Design fair, which brings together a compelling selection of Modern and contemporary art in Bridgehampton. If you’re lucky enough to have a foothold over there—I’m officially jealous—you should spend your weekend visiting local venues as well. Explore C Fine Art’s eclectic group show of sculpture, or visit the uncanny valley of magical realism in paintings at RJD Gallery. The master herself, Mary Heilmann, is the subject of a lovely exhibition at the Dan Flavin Art Institute, and that frankly is enough to justify the entire drive out there, if you ask me. Jeff Lincoln Art + Design, meanwhile, offers a range of gorgeous abstract work, including the likes of Yayoi Kusama, Al Held, and John Chamberlain. Lastly, be sure to head to Rental Gallery for a show curated by Rashid Johnson, wherein the artist explores his lifelong fascination with the indelible and colorful work of Bob Thompson.
