Daphne Barrios With Leah Lane, Stewart Lane And Bonnie Cromley

Southampton, NY - Wrapping up its fourth and largest edition yet, Art Southampton, the leading international contemporary and modern art fair for acquiring investment-quality 20th and 21st century works of art, presented by Art-Miami, drew a record 21,000 collectors, art enthusiasts, curators and art lovers to the world-renowned pastoral grounds of Nova’s Ark Project.

Attendees resoundingly noted the distinguished array of contemporary artworks and installations, paintings, photography, prints, drawings, design, video art, and indoor and outdoor sculptures showcased by more than 80 international galleries at the fair.

Sales began almost immediately after the fair opened its doors to the lavish and exclusive two-tiered VIP Private Preview, which benefited the Parrish Art Museum and Southampton Hospital and set the tone for both the evening and the fair’s five-day duration. 

"We were so pleased to work in concert with Art Southampton this year, with a great exchange of ideas and resources that makes everyone¹s experience richer." said Terrie Sultan, Director of the Parrish Art Museum.

Upon arriving, guests were treated to the eye-catching large-scale contemporary art sculpture fields of the Nova’s Ark Project – the backdrop of this year’s new, and based on attendees’ accolades, extraordinarily beautiful fair location.. From there, guests walked through the equally stunning sculpture garden designed by LaGuardia Design and supported by Summerhill Landscapes, featuring works by Paul Oberst (Banded Poles/Long Island Four), David Hayes (Totem, Group), Boaz Vaadia (Baraq with Cat), Sam Tufnell (Power Gnomes), Heiner Meyer (Garden Kelly), Hamilton Aguiar (It’s a Girl!) Tuki Moses (Off) and others, with Cracking Art Group’s florescent pink, larger-than-life Giant Rabbit drawing hundreds of “selfies.”

During the exclusive preview, guests enjoyed Ruinart champagne and hors d’oeuvres provided by the Southampton Social Club while admiring the stunning display of precious jewels exhibited by sponsor Graff Diamonds. Christie’s International Real Estate played host to local and visiting East Enders with an impressive selection of exclusive Hamptons and other international properties available.

Story By: Tony Vargas

A Moment In Time

Tony winning producer, Stewart F. Lane wrote and directed a new musical slated to come to Broadway in the Spring of 2011. With songs from John Denver, a cherished icons, A MOMENT IN TIME, is about a marine in Afghanistan who, moments before a battle, recalls a safer, happier place. The new musical got its world premiere at Five Towns College, Dix Hills, New York. this past weekend. We loved the closing performance and found Stewart's book riveting. We tried to find out who will play the lead on Broadway but negotiations have just begun so it will be a huge surprise. Line up guys it's a "plum" role. “Doing a full scale world-premiere musical at the Five Towns College is a unique opportunity to produce a new musical away from New York City with professional designers, a New York director and writer, and a professional music director. While many workshops only permit the audience to envision a small sampling of a show, the college’s Performing Arts Center has the ability to fully stage professional shows,” said Mr. Lane. The cast is comprised of professional actors and Theatre Arts students from the Five Towns College BFA Theatre Arts Program. The creative team includes scenic designer Luke Foco, costume designer Sherry Kfare, choreographer Katie Bradley, stage manager Michael Johnson Jr., lighting designer Gary Gifford, and sound designer Matt Ragone. The project's orchestrator and musical director is Christine Riley (Musical Director for Gemini the Musical-NYMF, Romance, Romance-The Glove, AMD on the National Tour of Thoroughly Modern Millie and My Vaudeville Man at the York Theater). "With a longer rehearsal schedule at the college, changes can be made daily in rehearsal and the very talented student cast and professional actors can do the work quickly to develop the script. Here we have the extra time to perfect the vision of the show and even do some things that wouldn't be possible because of the costs of Broadway. This affords the chance to see and hear the material and also give more student actors a chance to work in a very professional environment. It also gives Long Island audiences a chance to see a new show prior to a possible run in the city at a fraction of Broadway costs. Producers will be invited to see a very classy and very professional production of the show." notes Stewart Lane.
