“As Art Southampton has become the premiere contemporary and modern art fair in the Hamptons, it is a natural fit with Graff’s commitment to excellence — a commitment which is reflected both in the quality and craftsmanship of our diamonds and rare gemstones – as well as the institutions and philanthropic causes which we support,” said Henri Barguirdjian, the president  of Graff Diamonds.

Nick Korniloff, the director of Art Miami LLC, which presents Art Southampton, said,  “We are proud that the internationally famed jeweler, House of Graff, has become our luxury partner this year as Art Southampton has clearly demonstrated its ability to draw in the most discernible international collectors with a keen interest in viewing and acquiring only the best the world has to offer.”

Art Southampton launched in 2012 as part of the annual social and cultural season in the Hamptons with this year's event  scheduled from July 25 to 29. Organizers expect more than 90 galleries to show master works, and they planned two special exhibitions including Warhol by Gallery Valentine, presented by Art Southampton, and the New York Academy of Art Exhibition of famed alumni curated by internationally acclaimed artist Eric Fischl.

The pavilion sits on the grounds of the sprawling 18-acre Southampton Elks Lodge estate adjacent to the Southampton Golf Club located at 605 County Road 39, Southampton, New York 11968.

Southampton Hospital is a principal beneficiary of Art Southampton. This year Art Southampton is donating the use of its pavilion and infrastructure for the Hospital’s 55th Summer Party.
