Bridgehampton Museums and Galleries
Dan Flavin Art Institute
Corwith Ave., Bridgehampton
Dan Flavin was a mainstay of the community of artists that flocked to the Hamptons in the summers, and so it's fitting that there's a space here devoted to his works. This renovated firehouse (which has been stewarded by the Dia Art Foundation for its entire existence) has a permanent exhibition of Flavin's fluorescent light works on the top floor and a space for temporary exhibitions on the first floor.
Market Art + Design
2368 Montauk Hwy, Bridgehampton
Art Market Hamptons relaunched itself a few years ago as Market Art + Design, which means that on top of the stunning display of contemporary and modern art they bring to their tents at the Bridgehampton Museum, they also showcase a small selection of furniture and other design pieces. It's widely known that in addition to great art, this event also attracts all of the best caterers and food trucks in the area. Tickets start at $20 for a one-day pass (as always, it's the weekend after the 4th of July, July 6-9).
Silas Marder (Closed)
120 Snake Hollow Rd., Bridgehampton
Silas Marder Gallery (located in an open-air and still-very-raw-wood barn) projects movies for all comers on Friday nights in a series called, appropriately, "Films on the Haywall." Curator Tucker Marder’s taste is eclectic but spot-on, as he plays everything from The Muppet Movie to Grizzly Man to Cool Hand Luke. Get there early enough to see the exhibition of Ryan McGinness’s sculptures and paintings, inspired by surf and skate culture.
