Join artist Laurie Lambrecht on the East Lawn in front of the majestic pine tree that is now made more beautiful with Laurie’s series Ethereal Blues, including 19 cyanotypes on linen. Learn how to harness the power of the sun to make your own impression using leaves and other natural items from the grounds.
Compared to other photographic printing processes, cyanotype is easy and inexpensive. No darkroom is needed, instead it uses the power of the sun and iron salt solutions rather than the silver salt solution of black and white photography. Ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide are combined, and exposure to UV light creates ferric ferrocyanide, also known as Prussian Blue.
Laurie Lambrecht is an internationally known photographer and artist based in Bridgehampton, NY, focusing primarily on color, surface, form and texture.
Practice your drawing skills in this three-session series with artist Linda Capello. Participants will practice drawing a live model through gesture sketches and longer duration observation. All skill levels are welcome, ages 16+. The classes will take place in our spacious theater allowing for ample physical distancing. Faces masks required.
As much as we look forward to spending time with you at our annual SummerFest celebration and gala, current government restrictions prohibit us from gathering in large groups. This year calls for a new approach. As such, we are taking this moment to honor, recognize and thank SAC’s most cherished and loyal friends by introducing our 2020 Patrons Circle. In lieu of supporting our annual Summerfest Gala, we invite past SummerFest supporter and longtime friends of SAC to join our new 2020 Patrons Circle. Your contribution will allow us to continue SAC’s year-round programming and serve as a critical economic driver that will lead this community out of these unsure times. Additionally, in return for your support or $10,000 or above, you will receive: - Two or Four seats to an intimate Appreciation Dinner to be held on Friday, August 21 in SAC’s Caesar Garden ($10,000/$25,000) - Recognition on summer 2020 Patrons Circle Wall inside SAC’s front gallery - Free admission to all SAC events this summer - A private tour of SAC’s Summer Exhibition 2020 VISION, in partnership with the New York Academy of Arts - Satisfaction in knowing that your contribution will significantly support this organization and our community during these challenging times
