Sunday, March 10 | 3-4:30 PM | $20 ($15 for Friends of SAC)
Join TAKEOVER! artist Darlene Charneco who will host a special memorymapping session for adults at SAC.
Inspired by her ongoing series The Self-Assembling MemoryPalace, artist Darlene Charneco has been exploring the navigation and accumulation of personal and collective memory and sharing her love for memorymapping through workshops to different groups and ages. We will each create a personal ‘memorymap’ of a favorite familiar space using paper collage and mixed-media. All materials provided-just bring yourself!
Space is limited. Advance reservations recommended.
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.
Take a rarely seen peek into the creative process when nine East End artists take over the galleries of Southampton Arts Center with pop-up studios, exhibiting completed works while focusing on new projects during gallery hours. TAKEOVER Artists include Scott Bluedorn, Daniel Cabrera, Darlene Charneco, Kara Hoblin, Ruby Jackson, Laurie Lambrecht, Jerome Lucani, Paton Miller, and Jeff Muhs.
Every Thursday from 6-8 PM - FREE! Come socialize with the "Takeover" artists in residence in the galleries every Thursday from 6-8 PM during the run of the show. Watch them work, play ping pong, listen to music, have a drink, and just hang out!
