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.
Curated by Paton Miller, the now fifth year of this popular exhibition continues to celebrate 31 new artists including six teenagers and marks Southampton Arts Center as a home where the East End arts scene can continue to thrive. This exhibition has been made possible thanks, in part, to the generosity of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Public funding provided by Suffolk County.
Meet the artists of East End Collected5 and EEC Jr. as well as Curator Paton Miller at our popular Thursday night social club, “Hangout.” Come view the new exhibition, socialize with the artists and members of the community, have a glass of wine, listen to music, play ping-pong and just hang out!
