The fair presented an opportunity for Hamptonites to furnish their second homes while discovering artists and art. The majority of the works displayed reflected the financial times we live in, as they were smaller and portable, rather that the huge paintings that cab be eye catching, but costly for a gallery to transport to a fair and generally more expensive works by an artist.
