TAKEOVER 2020! Artists in Residence

TAKEOVER! GALLERIES ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED – CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES.

TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller

Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies.

TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation. Public funding provided by Suffolk County.

Southampton Village is Open for Business

We often say “it takes a village”, and those words have never been more true today. Southampton Arts Center would like to take a moment to acknowledge and thank the local businesses that remain open to serve our community during this challenging time. We hope you will remain at home as much as possible, but if you need to venture out, please consider supporting our neighbors.

Purchase PAUSE AT HOME Portraits to Benefit Hamptons Arts Network

The Hamptons Arts Network is working with the artist Philippe Cheng to take commissions of Pause At Home—family, individual, or essential worker portraits—as an important record of our community living through the COVID-19 pandemic. A portfolio of all commissioned portraits will become part of the collections of East Hampton Historical Society, Eastville Community Historical Society, and Southampton History Museum as a means to gather and preserve information for future researchers. The option to pay for a portrait of a health worker, essential worker, civil servant, or a gift for another person or family, is available. Proceeds, after production expenses, go directly to support the 19 members organizations of the Hamptons Arts Network, a consortium of not-for-profit organizations working together to create a unified arts community of the Hamptons.
