Space is limited for workshops. Advance reservations recommended.
Come dance, play, and print using your hands, feet, legs, arms, and more while we explore how to weave individual body parts into a collective work of art to become part of the community tapestry.
The Radiance Project, from February 26 – May 20, 2018, will engage the community in collaborative print-making to construct a visionary tapestry. East End artist Andrea Cote is interested in spaces where education, art-making, social practice, and public art can intersect. At a time when words divide, can a shared embodied experience unite? The process will be on view throughout the course of her residency at SAC as we journey from winter to summer. Based on the circular mandala form, and using our collective bodies, we will create a multi-dimensional radiant communal portrait.
“The Radiance Project” is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor M. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and administered by The Huntington Arts Council.
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.
LIGHT OF THE OCEAN features a dynamic installation of works by Francisco Alvarado-Juárez, New York-based American artist born in Honduras. Our two main galleries have been transformed into a magical marine environment with part of the floor covered with sand, seashells and other organic materials indigenous to the East End of Long Island.
