East End Collected draws attention to the large population of artists living in the region and reflects Paton Miller’s vision of the East End as an ideal environment for artists to create work. In this sixth iteration of the popular exhibition, Miller continues with the intention of never showing the same artist twice. Since its 2015 launch, the EEC series has featured over 200 individuals. Through this exhibition, Paton Miller celebrates 34 new artists and further establishes Southampton Arts Center as a home where the East End arts scene continues to thrive.
EEC6 Artists include Linda K. Alpern, Mary Boochever, Deborah Buck, Dominic Cantasano, Isadora Capraro, Philippe Cheng, Joe Chierchio, Jerry Cooke, James Croak, Noel de Lesseps, Mary Delaney, John Dios, David Geiser*, Melody Guini, Candace Hill, Dennis Lawrence, Christine Matthäi, Gerald Monroe, Ryan Moore, Shimon Okshteyn*, Zach Osif, Patrick Peters, Leila Pinto, William Quigley, Doug Reina, Bastienne Schmidt, Christine Sciulli, Anne Seelbach, Agathe Snow, Kevin Teare, Catherine Van Milders, Maria Vasconcelos, Linh Vivace, Charles Waller*, Claire Watson, Carol Weinberg, Suzanne Wetanson, and John Whelan.

Curator’s Statement: In 2012 I was invited to a meeting in Southampton Village to discuss the possibility of creating an arts center at 25 Jobs Lane. I was asked my opinion and I said, to what would become the founding members of the Southampton Art Center, that if they were setting about opening an arts center to survive they must be loved. To achieve that I said their focus should be on the incredible artistic depth and diversity of our immediate region.
A few months later I was invited to curate the first East End Collected exhibition. Here we are these years later and under extreme circumstances with our sixth installment having exhibited more than 200 artists.
I’d like to thank Amy Kirwin, Tom Dunn and the board of SAC for everything they have done to support me in exhibiting the artists of the East End Collected series. Curating these shows has been an honor and revelatory experience

This timely exhibition features artists who use their talents to focus on environmental conservation and activism, whether through fine art, science, photography, film, music, prose or other forms of artistic expression. The vision for eARTh is to use art to creatively confront the alarming state of our precious planet and its inhabitants in a way that all can understand and appreciate. The intention of eARTh is to ask questions and inspire action. What can you do to make a difference?
