Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! Southampton Arts Center has once again handed 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 weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. Guests are encouraged to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works.

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

SAC Public Art Project: Outdoor Sculpture and Art Installation

Sat, Jun 27 - Sun, Sep 13

Artists include Eric Fischl, Saskia Friedrich, Alice Hope, Bryan Hunt, Laurie Lambrecht, and Steve Miller.

This special installation on the east end west lawn of SAC is a collaboration between Artistic Director Amy Kirwin and Artist Eric Fischl and reflects both nature and the new normal of life during a pandemic. The intention is not only to offer an open-air experience that welcomes guests to roam freely and safely, but to draw attention to artists that use nature and humanity as an inspiration for their work. 

This project will enhance our beautiful grounds for the public to enjoy while taking advantage of the property. Combining both sculpture and installation makes for a dynamic use of the landscape, and the artists chosen all have works that will be in conversation with and draw attention to the stunning natural surroundings and existing sculptural features.

Five Pillars Yoga at SAC

Fri, Jul 03 - Mon, Sep 07

Five Pillars has been serving the Hamptons community for the last 4 years. During this pandemic, people need yoga more than ever, not only to maintain respiratory health, but more importantly, emotional well-being. Scientists have suggested that outdoor activities where social distancing and/or mask usage is possible is the safest way to stay healthy. SAC is thrilled to partner with Five Pillars to offer daily yoga classes at 9:30 AM on our expansive grounds. This way we can ensure the safety of the students and teachers, and continue to offer the high-quality yoga that Five Pillars is known for. 

All Outdoor Classes are Weather Permitting.

Mats & Blocks available for purchase, or bring your own from home (no rentals/no shared props/no storage).
