Conceived and Curated by Paton Miller
ON VIEW JANUARY 30-APRIL 11, 2021
East End Collected6 continues to reflect Paton Miller’s vision of this area as an ideal environment for artists to create work as well as drawing attention to the large population of artists living on the East End. In this sixth iteration of the popular exhibition, Miller continues with the intention of never showing the same artist twice. The series will have featured over 200 individuals including this 6th collection. Through this exhibition, Paton Miller celebrates these 30 new artists and marks Southampton Arts Center as a home where the region’s arts scene can continue to thrive.
EEC6 Artists include Linda Alpern, Mary Boochever, Deborah Buck, Dominic Cantasano, Isadora Capraro, Philippe Cheng, Joe Chierchio, Jerry Cooke, David Geiser, Mary Delaney, Melody Guini, Candace Hill, Dennis Lawrence, Christina Matthai, Gerald Monroe, Ryan Moore, Patrick Peter, William Quigley, Doug Reina, Bastienne Schmidt, Anne Seelbach, Agathe Snow, Kevin Teare, Cati Van Milders, Maria Vasconcelos, Linh Vivace, 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
