The other two shoes — er, art fairs — will drop this weekend, with Art Southampton returning to the grounds of Nova’s Ark in Bridgehampton and Market Art + Design pitching its tent at the Bridgehampton Museum. Both fairs will open with V.I.P. previews this evening. Market Art + Design will close on Sunday at 6 p.m., while Art Southampton will run through Monday at 6.
