A Long Island-raised gallery owner is returning to her roots in the hamlet of Bridgehampton, New York, opening the Chase Edwards Fine Art Galleries at 2463 Main Street, Bridgehampton earlier this month.
Bonnie Elizabeth Edwards has returned to the area after a successful west coast career including galleries in Laguna Beach, Palm Desert, Maui, Nantucket, Santa Fe, and Oyster Bay.
From paintings to sculptures to functional pieces, and photography, the gallery will present works of established and emerging new talents in the world of contemporary art. According to Ms. Edwards, Bridgehampton is ideal for galleries.
“The historic charm surrounded by the immense natural beauty of the ocean and the bay, easily accessible to a large sophisticated art community base, is an attractive environment for galleries,” she said.
Store hours will be 11a.m. to 7p.m. daily. Evening hours for strollers and events are in the works for the busy season.
