Join Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County (CCE) at Southampton Arts Center for the continuation of this popular beach-themed art session that benefits the CCE’s Back to the Bays Initiative. Channel your inner artist and enjoy a night out with friends where artist Carolyn Munaco will provide the guidance you need to create a marine-themed work of art to take home. Brush Strokes for the Bays isn’t your typical Paint Night event. Participants will learn about the marine species or habitat type featured in the subject of the painting, and will have a chance to interact with educators from CCEs Marine Program who provide interesting facts and information throughout the evening.
Part of the proceeds from this program will support Cornell Cooperative Extensions Back to the Bays program. The goal of Back to the Bays is to grow the community’s engagement in Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County’s Water Quality Protection Initiatives, Habitat Improvement Projects, Shellfish and Fin Fish Research and Restoration, and Youth and Community Education Experiences.
It’s friends like you that have made the first five years of SAC so successful. Now, we are taking the opportunity to invite you to become our Friend – formally – as we launch Southampton Arts Center Friends Circle.
TAKEOVER! GALLERIES ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED - CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES. TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation. Public funding provided by Suffolk County.
