EASY MOBILE FOR THE BEGINNER TO MAKE!
The basic materials you will need to create an adorable baby whale ornament will be provided by Upsculpt including marine debris, however you will need to bring your own ingenuity, imagination and what ever you want to *upcycle! Actually there is practically no limit to the kind of material that can be used to make mobiles, as long as its not too heavy. We suggest picking up plastics from the shoreline! It’s the perfect gift for your tree or a hostess gift for a friend!
What is Upsculpting?
Upcycling + Sculpture to create environmentally conscious art that educates and engages the public regarding issues surrounding marine debris. We remove plastic from beaches and bring attention to the problem, while creating beauty from waste.
About the Artist: Cindy Pease Roe’s paintings and sculptures are inspired by her deep, immovable kinship with the sea. In 2010 Cindy began using marine debris to create art and use education to promote ocean conservation. She has garnered the interest of art lovers and environmentalists alike by collecting plastics she finds along the shoreline and transforming it into thought-provoking sculpture.

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 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.
