The pages of gallery comes to life when the best of the world of art and design is presented for visitors to discover, learn and buy for themselves (and for a good cause). The magazine’s editorial team has selected a number of uniquely talented, art-conscious designers from around the country to bring this vision to life, ” gallery says editor-in-chief Jacqueline Terrebonne. “We really tapped designers who are already powerfully using art in their spaces. … You have a love for art and an understanding of how it can transform a room and almost electrify it and take it to the next level. “

“We played matchmaker and brought them together with different designers in the house, and we let them work together on the designer’s vision for the space and develop it themselves,” explains Terrebonne. “The transformation that (the house) went through, the renovation of what it looked like less than a year ago, is absolutely breathtaking and I think it really shows the power of design and how you can transform a home.”

The focal point of the house is the living room designed by Mark Cunningham, the open floor plan of which allows guests to admire his astute design elements and artwork by Vik Muniz, courtesy of Galeria Nara Roesler, while also having space to access the library terrace and dining room protruding from the room.

Speaking of the dining room by Ellen Hamilton, it was designed as “a dining room in an artist’s home where friends bring art over and everyone is involved in this cool conversation,” explains Terrebonne. “Nothing is too perfectly coordinated, but everything has personality.”

Other highlights include Richard Mishaan’s simulated tented bedroom that exudes a mix of old and new world vibes, Nicole Fuller’s wellness-centric spa, Billy Cotton’s downstairs living room with a bespoke Jack Pierson mural, Ike Kligerman Barkley’s octagonal living room with a trellis and a living tree growing in the middle of the room, Josh Greene’s dressing room with a giant pink feathered bear holding a Paola Pivi shoe made from Perrotin, Leyden Lewis’s poolside kitchen area, showing the art of black artists and many more surprises.

While guests are encouraged to take photos and notes of rooms that inspire them, each room will have a QR code listing all of the products used and all of the artwork displayed, so visitors can start working on their own ornate designs with ease can.

“The House of Art and Design gallery will give people so many ideas and inspiration,” says Terrebonne. “Instead of seeing (art) on a white wall in the context of other art, see how you can really live with art and how much it does to improve your home, your mood and your attitude towards life.”

The Gallery House will also feature multiple site-specific installations across the 12,500-square-foot clapboard-style property and lush grounds to add moments of surprise and amazement. One such sculpture is a memorial to the legendary French conceptual artist Bernar Venet, whose great works are in exhibitions around the world as well as on the pages of gallery.

“It is really important to us that the pages really come to life and that one of his works can be seen on this property. They’re amazing in real life, ”says Terrebonne. “The revitalization of the site with sculptures brings nature and art together in a great way. … you are brave; they are meaningful! “

Proceeds from the opening of the House of Art and Design gallery will help build the East Hampton Emergency Department of Stony Brook Southampton Hospital – a much-needed medical facility designed to ensure that all communities in the East End have access to the highest quality emergency medicine . “We’re excited to bring them closer, if not to achieve them,” says Terrebonne, adding that gallery Founder and Editor-in-Chief Lisa Fayne Cohen, who has a home in East Hampton, is “so excited” about the chance to make the long-awaited emergency center a reality.
