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.

Resource List for Artist Grants

We want to be able to serve as a resource for all artists during these difficult times. For those of you working in visual, performing, literary, or any other arts-related field - whether as the maker, administrator, technician, or other role - there are options out there to help you. The Willem de Kooning Foundation, the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Teiger Foundation, and the Cy Twombly Foundation, as part of their respective COVID-19 relief efforts, have established an emergency relief grant program that will provide $1,250,000 in aid to Tri-State non-salaried workers in the visual arts who have experienced financial hardship from lack of income or opportunity as a direct result of the COVID-19 crisis. The program, initiated by The Willem de Kooning Foundation, will be administered in partnership with NYFA.
