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.
Join North Fork chalk artist Kara Hoblin for the second session of making your own chalk creation inspired by something you would like to let go of. Students will work off their own small chalkboards that will be erased at the end of each session, and will add to a communal chalk drawing that will be ceremoniously wiped clean at “The Big Erase”, which will take place at the end of the Thursday, December 20th session with music and refreshments.

A quilt is an object of comfort that is often made with love by hand. Stop by to join us along with artist Mare Dianora as we create a quilt together to celebrate ‘community’ and how we define it. Each participant will create their own square for this community art project that will become part of the larger work.
