This year's festival will center around award winning artists and design elements, and also showcase local farms and purveyors, and even include a few surprises.

"We have been so fortunate to have a wonderful attendance and a growing following every year," noted eARThHAMPTONS Founder Anahi DeCanio. "Our 2017 Saturday evening reception brought over 300 guests."

The eARThHAMPTONS art exhibition will encompass an eclectic mix of sculpture, fine art abstracts and photography, to contemporary art from Springs glass artist Mary Milne, photographer Donna Renna, internationally renowned sculptor Phyllis Hammond, local artist Aurelio Torres and award winning Anahi DeCanio.

When selecting pieces, DeCanio seeks works that support the notion that what we choose to surround ourselves with in our home and habitat can not only look beautiful, but can also be created using sustainable practices.

Master craftsman and fine custom furniture designer Angel Naula of Naula Workshop, who has worked on projects for the likes of Robert Kennedy Jr., Hugh Jackman, Norah Jones, and Rupert Murdoch, among others, will also return for the 2018 iteration. Additionally, Cloud9 Designs will be showcasing an exclusive line of luxury home accessories.

The final day will feature a discussion led by Douglas Elliman powerhouse duo Alfred Renna and Joanne R. Douglas, authors of Negotiating New York - which includes a foreword from Shark Tank's Barbara Corcoran. The conversation and book signing will take place at 12 p.m.

"We continue to look forward to growing an enjoyable way to combine all the elements that make up our habitats at large and bring more attention to sustainable practices in the art and design world as well as our everyday lives," DeCanio added.

eARThHAMPTONS will be on display from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. A Meet the Artists Opening Reception will be held on Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
