Transformable materials can include fabric, wire, string, yarn, beads, cardboard & plastic recyclables, shells, acorns branches and other found materials.
Additionally, bring us found beach cleanup straws or your own used straws (cleaned) for “Imagine There’s No Plastic”, a community art project & action to inspire people to rethink the straw & reduce the vast use of plastic straws, an initiative started by Janine Martel in Cape Town, South Africa.
Before the fair, please join SURFRIDER FOUNDATION EASTERN LONG ISLAND for a beach cleanup from 9:30-11:30 AM at Flying Point Beach!
With Artist-in-Residence Andrea Cote, the public will participate in collaborative printmaking and video. Participants will come together over the course of two months in a series of movement and art-making workshops culminating in a performance and large-scale tapestry.
Curated by Paton Miller, the now fourth year of this popular exhibition continues to celebrate 29 new artists, honors the collectors who have supported them, and marks Southampton Arts Center as a home where the East End arts scene can continue to thrive.
