Join curator Paton Miller and six of the East End Collected3 artists, William Falkenburg, Mary Lambert, Brett Loving, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Neill Slaughter, and Diane Tuft, for illustrated talks about their works followed by questions from Paton and the audience. Photographer Diane Tuft will also be signing her books prior to the talk at 1:30 pm. Books will be available for purchase on the day of the program.
East End Collected3 continues to reflect Paton Miller’s vision of this area as an ideal environment for artists to create work. Through this exhibition, Miller celebrates the community of artists, honors the collectors who have supported it, and marks Southampton Arts Center as a home where the East End arts scene can continue to thrive.
