Join TAKEOVER! artist Darlene Charneco for 4 weeks in March Memorymapping!
Space is limited. Advance reservations required. Children are encouraged to attend all 4 sessions, but are not required to do so. Drop-off permitted.
Inspired by her series The Self-Assembling MemoryPalace, Darlene will help guide participants in creating their own art collage ‘memorymaps’ of favorite and familiar spaces, past or present. The artworks become storyboards that we can navigate together and share memories and stories we have embedded inside! Drop into one session or come play at all 4 to create a foldable collection of personal maps. A variety of fun materials will be provided – just bring You!
GRADES 2-5 ONLY.
Darlene Charneco is a contemporary Latin-American artist whose own mixed-media mapping series looks at people, networks, homes, and communities as part of a larger organism’s growth stage. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States at venues including the Katonah Museum, the Hunterdon Museum, The Islip Art Museum, and the Parrish Art Museum and is featured in the book ‘The Map as Art: Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography’ by Katherine Harmon. She was the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant in 2017 and her recent series ‘FutureNurture: Weaves and Touchmaps’ debuted at PRAXIS Gallery Chelsea in NYC this past fall. Charneco lives and works on the East End of Long Island.
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!
