ArtMRKT sure is getting ready for a one-of-a-kind, interactive experience.
ArtMRKT is looping back to the Hamptons this weekend for their third installation of their art fair in Bridgehampton. The show will also bring art pieces to the Hamptons for sale and will feature 40 galleries that celebrate local artists.
"I would say that just on its scale, it sets the experience apart," said Max Fishko, a co-founder of artMRKT. He hopes that guests will interact with the pieces and the dealers.
Aside from making lots of runs to hardware stores, artMRKT is preparing to give guests "a 360-degree experience in terms of food and art exhibits. They are partnering with The Parrish Art Museum and will have services from The Norwood Arts Club. The Bridgehampton Historical Society provided the location.
The best way to navigate, Fishko says, is just to walk through the front door. Those perusing artMRKT for the first time should not be afraid to ask the art dealers questions.
"The most common misconception at art fairs is if you don't plan on buying something, you shouldn't ask about it," Fishko said. "Dealers are here to get into conversations about what they're interested in and what the art market is into today.
ArtMRKT kicks off with the opening night preview reception and party on Thursday, July 11 and runs through Sunday, July, 14.
