Anyone looking for crowds this weekend is sure to enjoy this week’s return of two art fairs that have succeeded in becoming a fixture in Bridgehampton in the second weekend in July.
Once the young upstart, Art Market Hamptons will return now for a fourth year with a slightly different spelling of its name at its space at the Bridgehampton Museum on the grounds of Corwith House. ArtHamptons will return for a seventh year in the same space it occupied last year at Nova’s Ark on Millstone Road.
Jennifer Bartlett may take a serial approach to her artwork, whether within the pieces or in relationships between them, but she is never predictable and certainly not tedious.
Filmmakers participating in the Stony Brook Southampton’s summer shorts 20-day intensive production workshop were given a warm welcome on Monday with an opening discussion with Todd Haynes, the director of “Far from Heaven,” “Velvet Goldmine,” “I’m Not There,” “Mildred Pierce,” “Safe,” and many other original and provocative films.
A documentary about an early pioneer of ecologically friendly architecture will be shown Monday at the Southampton Arts Center at 6 p.m. AIA Peconic will present “The Vision of Paolo Soleri: Prophet in the Desert,” which has been selected for a number of film festivals this year from Boston to Sedona and even New Zealand.
Beginning Wednesday at 10 a.m., Paddle 8 will hold an auction of Robert Wilson’s own artwork as well as his personal collection of chairs.
Mr. Wilson told ARTINFO that his collection was being culled because he no longer had room to keep it all after moving out of his Tribeca loft. “Selling them, however, is like letting your children go,” he said. But he sees it as an opportunity for more people to enjoy them in a way he no longer can.
