On Saturday July 26th, a glittering array of Hampton locals, New York socialites, musicians, and artists, gathered to mingle over a cocktail party at the home of art collector, Peter Felfe. As a long time supporter of the arts, Mr. Felfe’s annual Summer party connected a vibrant pairing of Hampton locals with talented New York City based artists and musicians.
As guests danced away to the charismatic tunes and laughed over art talk, the lavish energy of the crowd poured onto the beautiful waterfront view at Blues by the Bay. Every year, Mr. Felfe’s summer tradition continues to inspire and delight with an eccentric blend of guests, aesthetics, and energy.
The evening highlights featured the art of Annika Connor, a Contemporary Romantic painter whose solo show opened in East Hampton last Summer at QF Gallery. Fueling the night was a rock and roll spin entertained by Your Ex-Girlfriends, the exciting up and coming all female country cover band.
Throughout the evening we had an eclectic selection of captured idyllic moments, profiling some of the following guests: Brian Carney, Craig Clemens,Ethan Cohen, Nick Gyani, Kim Le, Jerry LeWine, Angela Lui, Dara MacCaba, Colin Mahar, and Ian Mellancamp. As well as Amisha Patel, Rupa and Ravi Motwani, Michael Pecnik, Barbra Roberts, Kyle Rosko, Mikheil Saakashvili, Cameron Shay, Alex Scherbakovsky, Spencer Smith, Jordan Szekely, Kat Thomsen, Denise Woods, and Darius Yektai.
