Returning for its fourth year to the East End, SCOPE Hamptons will transform the 25,000 square-foot East Hampton Studios into a world-class art fair and destination-location coinciding with the 15th Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit. SCOPE is a major contributor to the Hamptons most celebrated weekend of art. Centrally located and inches from seasoned and emerging collector's homes, East Hamptons Studio is SCOPE’s home away from home for the New York and international art enthusiast. With over 40 international established and emerging contemporary galleries from over 15 countries, SCOPE will present a full schedule of special events, performances and screenings, alongside museum-quality programming, creating what has become “The Hamptons Weekend of Art.”
