Christina and Emmanuel Di Donna Open New Gallery in Southampton
Christina and Emmanuel Di Donna, the founders of Di Donna Galleries in New York, have opened Sélavy, a gallery at 30 Jobs Lane in Southampton, New York, dedicated to art and design. The inaugural exhibition at Sélavy will include sculptures by Jean Arp, paintings by Robert Motherwell and Kenneth Noland, and design items by Max Ernst. “We have always been driven by the concept of living with art, which inspired the salon-like design of the private spaces at my New York gallery, and has proven to be especially vital during this recent period, as our friends and clients have spent more time at home,” said Emmanuel Di Donna in a statement. “While the ideas behind Sélavy have been germinating for many years, we are excited to take this moment to bring the concept to life and are committed to a long-term presence in Southampton’s community.”
