Rick Friedman FAQ
What would you say is the DNA of Hamptons Fine Art Fair?
The fair is a tribute to the East End as a longtime haven for the creation and patronage of fine art. It is also a welcome celebration of the recent tidal wave of art galleries, auction houses, and arts foundations that have arrived in the Hamptons, propelling this current explosion in the local arts scene – for the benefit of all art enthusiasts. Overall, the fair has a strong flavor of mid 20th century, Abstract Expressionism mixed with respected, present day emerging artists.
What type of galleries are chosen to exhibit, and why?
We chose respected galleries with strong, recognizable/ renown artists and programs, showcasing post-war to contemporary, in all media. Virtually all have exhibited in other national art fairs. They are selling art works that all have an excellent chance of finding new homes in the Hamptons.
What is the price range of pieces? Who is the average buyer?
Prices begin at $10,000, with sweet spot around $50,000-$100,000. Many pieces range into the mid – high six figures, and some even 7 figures…. The average buyer lives in the Hamptons, in a $2-25 million estate, with big walls… and with sizable discretionary income.
