SATURDAY, JUNE 8 | 7 PM | $20 ($15 for Friends of SAC)
Presented with The Watermill Center
DUST BOWL FAERIES is a dark-carnival band based in Hudson, NY. Accordion, singing saw, ukulele, lap-steel/guitar and percussion combine to create a fairytale fusion of circus, post-punk, Gypsy and psyche-folk music. The band was founded by artist/performer Ryder Cooley and Hazel, a disembodied taxidermy ram who performs with the Faeries as their mascot-spirit animal. Musicians Rubi LaRue, Jon B. Woodin, Elizabeth LoGiudice, and Andrew Stein bring their own extraordinary styles to the group, making the Dust Bowl Faeries a truly unique musical experience.
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!
