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.
Art Heals – Be Creative!
The entry period for “SAC Community Art Share” has come to a close and we can how present the final “show” with 160 pieces!
Our galleries may be temporarily closed, but that won’t stop us from exhibiting artwork. During this time of social distancing we encouraged you to tap into your creativity – paint, draw, sculpt, photograph nature, make a video – whatever inspires and excites you! Then you shared the images of your work so we could post them online and on our social media platforms to make everyone’s worlds a little brighter!
We may be physically separated but SAC is still virtually vibrant and we want to stay connected with you socially. Follow @southamptonartscenter on Facebook and Instagram for daily posts to help inspire, motivate, and entertain.
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.
This very special 11″ x 17″ poster can be purchased for $20 to put in your store or home window! Proceeds benefit Artist Kara Hoblin, Southampton Arts Center, and Heart of the Hamptons, the Southampton-based non-profit organization offering a Food Pantry, Clothing Room, and General Assistance programs. Show your support for those brave individuals working in hospitals, pharmacies, grocery stores, post offices and more, by putting this beautiful poster in your window for all to see.
