You know that summer is in full swing when ArtHamptons comes around. The fourth annual ArtHamptons opened on Thursday at Sayre Park in Bridgehampton to its biggest crowd yet! The international art fair continued through the weekend and hosted 77 art dealers, with more than 500 artists.

Artist Kevin Berlin brought along his "swans" this year. So Black Swan chic of him.

The weekend proved to be ArtHamptons most successful year yet. But don't worry if you missed out on all the fabulous art this weekend, artMRKT Hamptons will open this Thursday and continue through Sunday. Much smaller in size, the 30 dealers are set to participate on Bridgehamptons Historical Society Grounds. Founder Max Fishko recently told 27 East,

“My own fairs are a wonderful shopping experience for my customers, and for me, I think they’re going to get a wonderful chance to see fresh, contemporary work that they otherwise might not have found.”

“The interesting thing is that the dealers in this show are ones you wouldn’t find in the same place—from uptown Manhattan to Chelsea to Brooklyn, all of them decided that it’s worthwhile to come out to the Hamptons at this particular time.” [via]

Fishko is set to give it a "boutique setting" with interconnecting tents. It should be a perfect follow up to the magnificent art work that was shown this weekend.
