This summer, Rizzoli and Empire Gallery in Sag Harbor, N.Y., are joining forces to open the Rizzoli Bookstore at Empire Gallery at 197 Madison Street, Sag Harbor, on the East End of Long Island. The hybrid bookstore/art gallery is selling more than 90 new Rizzoli titles and will host author events throughout the summer. Among the books for sale are Frank Lloyd Wright: The Heroic Years by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, Eric Fischl: Beach Painting and Casa No Name by Deborah Turbeville. The space opened last weekend and is open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. until October 15.
This is the second collaboration for Rizzoli and Empire; they teamed on a similar venture during Art Basel Miami last December.
