Chas Addams: Family and Friends, presented by Tee and Charles Addams Foundation, is an iconic compilation of works by famed New Yorker cartoonist Charles Addams, who was an East End resident until his death in 1988. This delightful exhibition is back by popular demand after being mounted in 2013 during the Southampton Arts Center’s inaugural season.
This exhibit encompasses more than fifty original works from all aspects and genres of subject matter including The Addams Family cartoons, on which the television series and feature films were based. As well, the creations from this past summer’s Charles Addams Festival: Cartooning for Kids at The Bridgehampton Museum will appear alongside the Addams works that inspired the children’s art.

This documentary explores the iconoclastic life of museum curator Henry Geldzahler. A voice in the wilderness during the 1960s, Geldzahler championed the work of pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, who were not highly accepted in the art scene. Through footage from the era and interviews with artists, the film reveals Geldzahler's contributions to the art world -- including his landmark exhibition "New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The screening followed by panel discussion moderated by Holly Peterson with Bob Colacello, Lisa Dennison, Met Director Max Hollein, Jane Holzer and Director/Producer Peter Rosen.
