Perfect Earth Project has been working tirelessly to transition the grounds of East End institutions be to toxin-free. This program will begin with a short talk about the Perfect Earth Project’s installation in A Sense of Place, and then Edwina von Gal will present special signs to representatives of the PRFCT toxin-free public places, including Southampton Hospital, Parrish Art Museum, Southampton Dog Run, Southampton Rose Garden, and Southampton Arts Center. Guests are also encouraged to view the works in galleries and enjoy light refreshments.
The program will conclude with a Bee House Workshop – including craft activity targeted to parents and children, using recycled and natural materials to make native Bee Hotels. This activity will educate attendees on the importance of native pollinator populations and how they can protect them in the spaces they own and visit. Reservations for the workshop can be made through Perfect Earth Project.
It’s friends like you that have made the first five years of SAC so successful. Now, we are taking the opportunity to invite you to become our Friend – formally – as we launch Southampton Arts Center Friends Circle.
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.
