Introducing the Galerie House of Art and Design, Debuting This August in the Hamptons
NEW YORK, NY – Hudson One Media is thrilled to announce the inaugural Galerie House of Art and Design, debuting this August in Sag Harbor, New York. Unlike any other show house, this unique experience will bring the pages of Galerie magazine to life by combining the best of the worlds of art and design all under one roof.
“The Galerie House of Art and Design embodies our brand’s goal to Live Artfully. The concept of combining art and design into an immersive experience all in one magnificent home truly embodies the editorial spirit of Galerie,” says Lisa Fayne Cohen, founder and editorial director of Galerie.
Galerie’s editorial team handpicked a group of uniquely talented designers from across the country to bring this vision to life. All known for their ability to incorporate high-caliber art into livable spaces, these designers will enliven a classic, Shingle-style estate, situated on six lush acres including a pond, with their distinctive points of view.
“For the house, we selected designers who are celebrated for their ability to create extraordinary rooms that showcase exceptional collections of art,” says Jacqueline Terrebonne, editor in chief of Galerie. “We are so excited to see the spaces they design and how they incorporate work from today’s leading artists and galleries into their concepts.”
The esteemed roster includes design chair Nicole Fuller along with these designers and firms: Rayman Boozer, Billy Cotton, Mark Cunningham, Geoffrey De Sousa, Dwyer M. Derrig, Benoist Drut, Elena Frampton, Elizabeth Gill, Josh Greene, Ellen Hamilton, André Jordan Hilton, Adam Hunter, Ike Kligerman Barkley, Katie Leede, Leroy Street Studio, Leyden Lewis, Jeff Lincoln, Richard Mishaan, Rocky Rochon, and Sara Story as well as a custom kitchen designed by Bob Bakes of Bakes & Kropp Fine Cabinetry.
Art will play a major component as well. A venerable list of blue-chip galleries, including Friedman Benda, Kasmin Gallery, Mariane Ibrahim Gallery, Nara Roesler, Perrotin, Salon 94, and Tripoli, will collaborate with designers to curate their spaces with works by today’s leading artists. Additionally, several artists will create site-specific installations throughout the 12,500-square-foot house to add moments of surprise, wonder, and excitement.
“Sag Harbor is such a special place in the Hamptons, and we’re eager to bring together this ‘house of dreams’ where art and design intersect in such a fresh way,” says designer Nicole Fuller. “It’s like nothing we’ve ever seen or experienced before: Our A-list lineup of artists, galleries, designers, and artisans will transform this house into something new. It’s uncharted territory, and for creatives, they’re challenged in a way that gives them total freedom to have new ideas and be inspired in different ways.”
Much of the ability to achieve such an ambitious project comes from the support of the house’s sponsors, who realize the influence that Galerie and these designers have on how people want to decorate their homes now.
“We are so grateful for the tremendous support of our fabulous sponsors; the caliber of which is matched only by that of our designers and artists,” says Janice Browne, group publisher and CRO of Galerie and aspire design and home. “With their support, we’ve been given the opportunity to create this space to become a physical embodiment of Galerie magazine. We want to celebrate how art elevates everything and how these various creative disciplines are inextricably linked.”
Proceeds from this year’s show house will benefit the construction of Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s East Hampton Emergency Department. This much-needed medical facility will ensure that all communities in the easternmost reaches of Long Island have access to first-class emergency medicine. “Minutes matter when someone is having a heart attack or is suffering from an acute condition and getting to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital in summer traffic can take an hour or more,” says Mirella Cameran-Reilly, Southampton Hospital Foundation Chief Development Officer. “That is why we are so delighted to be on the brink of building this much-needed facility in the heart of East Hampton. It will transform healthcare for this town and the surrounding areas including Montauk at the furthest point of Long Island.”
The 2021 Galerie House of Art and Design will kick off with a VIP Preview Benefit on August 5 followed by a public opening on August 7. The house will be available for viewings through September 7.
