Art fans rejoice as SeaFair returns

The world’s largest floating art gallery made a grand return to Greenwich last weekend as SeaFair sailed into Greenwich Harbor and docked by the Delamar Hotel for a weekend of art and fun.

 

The arrival of SeaFair was celebrated last Thursday with a reception for the opening that includes top Greenwich business, civic and cultural leaders as well as art fans ranging from the serious collectors to just people who appreciate the unique beauty of an artist’s vision. Throughout the weekend, visitors to SeaFair attended three lectures from guest speakers master print maker, Gary Lichtenstein, former director of the Farnsworth Museum Chris Crosman and Philip Eliasoph, a professor of Art History at Fairfield University and Senior Arts Editor of VENU Magazine.

There were also “Meet the Artists” events throughout the weekend with Paco Camús, Johan Barrios, Anthony Brunelli, Tice Lerner, Richard Whitten, Jilly Marie Dyson and Fareen Butt, and jewelry designers Lauren Harper, Yael Sonia and Rachel Dugger.

SeaFair, had previously docked by the Delamar in May, and the September visit had three decks of contemporary galleries and special installations. Featured galleries included Bendheim Gallery, Monica Lozano Fine Art and Questar Gallery, which are all located in Greenwich as well as other top galleries from the tri-state area. The four-day art fair was a well attended event and if you missed out on it, do not despair. SeaFair is scheduled to return for Art Greenwich on May 8, 2013.
